How can I grow, and how do I know in which direction?


May 30, 2021

You are creating a plan for yourself and setting goals. You even made a vision of where you want to be. But how do you get there?

Keep it close

First, don’t fall into the trap of growing too fast, but look at the next step, don’t skip any, read more about that here: Appreciate the process. With that in mind, look around you. Life always has paths carved out and has its ways of presenting them to you. You need to pay attention and be aware, and it’s often closer to you than you’d expect.

Look for resistance

Now that you are aware of the different paths life presents you with, which path and next action will you choose? If you want growth, it needs to be outside of your comfort zone. The farther out of your comfort zone, the more you grow. Also, it takes more effort. Our brains are wired to choose the easy path that takes the least energy. Because of this, your mind will put up more resistance when growth is more significant. So choose the path where your mind gives you the most pushback and resistance. When that happens, you know you are in the right direction for growth. So move towards it and lean into it!

Closing words

If you don’t know how to grow, look around, be aware, and the path will present itself to you! And when it does: Take the path of most resistance!
