Growing Every Day Is Your Responsibility

07 May, 2016

Worries, stress…all of these things that oppress and haunt us when we become adults have an explanation. We all need to grow. Be it professionally or personally, or in every aspect. The truth is that getting stuck and staying still is not an option, though many people might do it.

But, what is this need to overcome ourselves? Why do we have this desire to progress, to become better people? Today you’ll discover how to keep growing, how to improve as a person every day, while understanding this need as something innate to our existence. Are you ready to start growing every day?

“Nobody can learn for you. Nobody can grow for you. Nobody can seek for you. Nobody can do for you what you must do for yourself. Existence doesn’t allow for substitutes.”
Jorge Bucay

Growing is a priority


Growing should be a priority in your life. It should motivate you to be a better person, to move forward. What happens when we don’t grow? We simply fade away.

We can’t live without having goals, objectives, without overcoming challenges every day. When we don’t, we become people who are angry at the world, bitter and with a higher chance of succumbing to depression. If this isn’t what you want, change!

Obviously, if you have found yourself at a turning point and you don’t know how to go on, don’t worry! Today you’ll learn what to do in order to feel alive and useful again.

“A person that grows is a person that lets themselves be taught during their good moments, and lets themselves be corrected during difficult moments.”
-Bernardo Stamateas-

Usually, the majority of people stop learning and advancing in their lives when everything is going terribly wrong. This is something we should avoid doing. No matter how bad things are going, never stop growing. Why? Simply because of the following reasons:

  • You’ll make better decisions.
  • You’ll learn to value things more.
  • You’ll feel better about yourself and will be a better person.
  • You’ll achieve everything you set out to do. 
  • You’ll be stronger.

You’ll get this and much more if you set out to grow every day. But, the challenge lies in how we go about doing it. To do it, we must open our minds and be willing to learn and make mistakes as well.

Never stop learning

The first thing you should keep in mind to grow every day is that you should never stop learning. Every day is a new opportunity to learn something you didn’t know. Don’t waste it.

Anything that bothers you, any situation that makes you uncomfortable, start manifesting your opinion about it. Or do you want to spend the rest of your life quiet about it? Growing doesn’t mean going very far. Growing implies getting motivated to achieve small things we can change in our everyday.

“When faced with decisions, the weak quake, the dumb challenges them, the wise judges them and the skillful leads them.”

Understand that this is going to be a progressive journey. How does a child learn how to walk? Slowly. Well it’s exactly the same in this case. Analyze your actions and your own life. Think, am I happy? What do I like and what do I not? Now is the time to mature and keep moving forward in order to become a better person.

Don’t stay still. Your life is your own and you should take advantage of it and live it fully. Learn, establish small goals, have the motivation to improve constantly. The answer to the question “Am I happy with my life?” should be a resounding yes!
