Need To Grow Part II

So often it happens that we live out our lives in chains and we never know we have the key. From the song, Already Gone, by the Eagles.


Growing is a very much a creative process. Growing takes the willingness to take risks stand up each time you stumble… one step forward, two steps back. Repeat.

The process varies by individual and goes at their individual speed, depending on their circumstances.

Here are five suggestions to get you started:

1. Be open-minded and ever curious. Work on developing and nurturing your ability  to change your mind as you come upon each new and experience.

2. Be empathic – willing to step into the shoes of those whose lives are vastly different from yours. You can never understand the reality of others unless you have had a taste of it yourself.

3. Strive to make a difference – doing your best to better yours and other’s circumstances.

4. Live more simply – keep all the extraneous ‘stuff’ in perspective.

5. Expand your social circle – one of the best ways to challenge your assumptions and prejudices and develop new ways of looking at the world is to  surround yourself with those whose lives and lifestyles differ from yours, rather than hanging around with people who share your world view and your place in it. You don’t have to do what everyone else is doing.

Wonder where to start? Ask your way to success. Seek out other’s advice, ideas and opinions.

One thing will lead to the next and before you know it you’ll probably be on a path you’ve never walked before.

It’s amazing how life goes. Go out and live yours.


Stay safe. Stay strong. Stay engaged.
