Every morning, when we are given the privilege to wake up and embark on a new day, we are also given the opportunity to grow as individuals. One of the most important questions you should ask yourself daily is, “How can I grow today?” That particular question is powerful because when you start your day by asking yourself what are the ways you can grow, your mind will be quick to hunt for the answers.
For the longest of time, I constantly focused more on my work than I would on myself. I would get frustrated as time went on, because here I was spending unreasonable amount of time working on tasks, projects and other things, while not focusing one bit on how to grow better. Jim Rohn once said, "Work harder on yourself than your job. If you work hard on your job you can make a living. If you work hard on yourself you can make a fortune."
Over the years, I have found that profound quote to hold an incredible amount of truth. The day I started asking myself, “How can I grow today?” is the day my life and business changed for the better. After I went through my morning routine, I would write down on a note card what I was going to focus on for that day in terms of growth.
There would be days when I would practice forgiveness and on few days I would allot time to learn a new skill or practice something I felt I was lacking in. Whatever the case, I made sure I got better and grew as an individual daily.
Growth is optional
We all grow old, but growing as an individual is optional. It’s a choice you and only you can make. Every experience, thought, relationship and encounter in life gives us the opportunity to grow, whether negative or positive. When you make a firm decision to grow on a daily basis, you begin to reap the real beauty and joy that life has to offer. There is no better satisfaction than to know deep down that you are growing more and more into the person you want to be. The reason why most of us do not commit to daily growth is because it requires you to move out of your comfort zone.
It all starts with a decision
Becoming the best and growing daily doesn’t just happen by accident. It starts with a firm and bold decision. Just like anything in life, we are provided with decisions. Take time right now to make a firm decision that you will grow as an individual every day, somehow, someway.
Create your own daily growth programme. Whatever works best for you, do it. As long as you make a firm decision that you will grow somehow, someway is all that really matters. You owe it to yourself to reap the full benefits that life has to offer. After all, we can only grow our business to the extent we grow ourselves.
