It seems so easy to follow the road to personal growth:
1. Define a goal in your life
2. Assess exactly where you are right now
3. Keep your focus on what you want
I can tell you from my own experience it’s not easy. To define what you want is something I can do, to make an honest self evaluation is manageable, but the problem is keeping the focus.Sometimes you do things and reflect with the knowledge of hindsight, and say: why do I allow myself to distract on my path?
Very abstract all this… Maybe an example. I try not to gossip about colleagues at work. Because I don’t like people that gossip, and it’s a character trait that leads to nothing other than people getting hurt of what people said behind their backs. And I work in an environment where gossip is a form of art. That in itself is no excuse to join them. And still with all good intentions, I find myself gossip about a colleague now and then.
It’s not easy to keep your focus all time. Sometimes there are minor roadblocks in my personal growth.
