For most people, this is totally a cliché. Nobody loves this particular sermon because it is quite tasking knowing everything about you. However, you cannot start the journey to growth without knowing your strengths and weaknesses, (fortunately, that is all it takes to know yourself).
Listen to yourself, study your lifestyle and jot down the things that reveal how strong and smart you are, as well as things that reveals your weaknesses.
What are those things that get you all excited?What are your passions and responsibilities?
To grow is to become confident enough to show up for yourself at all times. I know no man is an island and sometimes we need people to hold our hands for every step we take, but should we let our guards down because we are expectant of an army yet to come?
Go and show up for that skill you’ve been procrastinating to learn, show up for that Tedtalk you are scared of, show up for your health and don’t get ready rather stay ready at all times!
While growing, you will face a lot of criticisms from people. Ensure you develop a thick skin that reminds you that not everybody criticisms are valid, and sincerely, you must not and cannot please everyone.
Quit trying to please everybody and filter every person’s judgment that gets access to you.
Every day you wake, challenge yourself, make your bed, clean up your room, go for a walk and do things that you rightly ought to do. Developing a great attitude starts with the minor things. As time goes on, the character of challenging yourself will begin to reflect in every aspect of your life.
Replace bad habits with good ones, learn a skill and improve on it, stay happy in ugly times, go for checkup and stay disciplined, your future self will thank you.
Create a yearly, monthly, weekly and daily plan for yourself.
Every lifelong plan must have a daily deposit of investment. Do you wish to become a professional and prominent OAP? Then start each day speaking to the mirror, each month speaking to an audience, each year anchoring conferences and talk shows. With these growth processes, your lifelong goal becomes clearer and possible like never before!
We are given two ears and a mouth because we ought to listen more than we talk. Don’t always try to interrupt conversations because you know better, you learn and grow more if you start taking listening more seriously.
Blaming a friend who introduces you to a business that later on crashed is crazy. It is expected of you to read the terms and conditions of that business, the method of operation and its risk level.
Taking responsibility even when there is a profound reason it wasn’t your fault will teach and guide you against another pot hole. Don’t get me wrong, I am not encouraging you to say yes to a murder case when you are obviously innocent, huh? I am saying you should quit blaming people for your own mistakes.
Be thankful for where you are right now and who you’ve become irrespective of your growth level. It takes gratitude to see the bigger picture clearer and sooner. Growth does not happen in a day; it takes series of hard work and time. Be patient and remain thankful while encountering significant changes.
Don't become too hard on yourself, if you fall back to the ground the second time, remove your shoes this time and climb the ladder again.
