The laws of growth works in every culture, laws are not dependent on culture, time, laws don’t care if you like it or not, laws are laws. i.e The law of gravity, if you agree with it or not it does not change anything.
Growth just doesn’t happen: You don’t grow automatically; it doesn’t just happen over time. The only thing that happen automatically over time is death. You have to have a plan for growth, since it doesn’t just happen, because you are growing older or because you are in a position. You have to consciously grow.
“Growth is not automatic, if you want to grow it has to be intentional” John Maxwell
Questions you should ask yourself
what is my plan for growth?
what am I doing every day to ensure am growing?
“Most people are eager to improve their circumstances but aren’t eager to improve themselves and therefore they remain banned” James Allen
The law of the mirror: How i see myself determines how much I will invest in myself, even in others.
It is however how you see yourself that you will serve yourself. people won’t buy into you than a higher level than you are. How we see ourselves determine how we behave, it is impossible to consistently behave in a manner inconsistent with how we see ourselves. We can do very few things in a positive way if we feel negative about ourselves.
The law of consistency: Motivation keeps you going, discipline keeps you growing. Success is not an event it is a process. We overestimate decision taking and underestimate decision managing and it is meant to be the other way round.
Success is not in taking a decision; success is in managing the decision taken. Highly successful people don’t take too many decisions, but they manage the few decisions they have taken.
“it takes the average person 14 days to stop managing the decision they have made” John Maxwell
“The secret to success is in the thing you do daily”
Two things to be successful in Life
- Love what you do
