Growth doesn’t just HAPPEN! Do you have a plan for your own personal GROWTH? If I asked you today, what is your plan for your personal growth? Could you give me an answer? You see if you don’t have a plan, you will fail. We all want to be more successful, better jobs, better work opportunities and all that, but if we never prepare or if we don’t have a plan, things will never change.
THE LAW OF INTENTIONALITY says that we must do some things on purpose, intentional and with direction. Bruce Springsteen said, “A time comes when you need to stop waiting for the man you want to become and start being the man you want to be.” If not today, WHEN are we going to start to becoming the man or woman you want to be. We must make a decision to START and then FOLLOW THROUGH. LEARN TO DO THINGS ON PURPOSE.
FOUR GAPS THAT CAUSE US TO NEGLECT OUR GROWTH:
1. The ASSUMPTION Gap: We assume we will grow automatically. Doesn’t happen that way.
2. The KNOWLEDGE Gap: I don’t know what I must do to grow.
3. The TIMING Gap: It’s not the right time just now. I will wait until ???????????
4. TheMISTAKE Gap: I’m afraid of making mistakes. It’s ok, the only people that make mistakes are the people who are doing something. GO AHEAD.
START NOW, TODAY IS NOT TOO SOON. DECIDE YOU ARE GOING TO PLAN YOUR LIFE INSTEAD OF JUST LETTING IT HAPPEN. Do it INTENTIALLY!
