You are almost 1/12th of the way through 2022. Congrats! You should be well on your way to your goals for the year.
Look back at where you were at the beginning of the month. Are you better now than you were then? If you’re doing everything right, you should say yes. Even it was small, all growth is still growth.
As you go about the rest of your week, keep these three growth tips in mind:
1) Challenge yourself constantly
The only way to grow is if you consistently challenge yourself. You have to always be reaching for new heights if you want to achieve greatness.
When you finish a challenge, start another one. Absorb as much learning as you can in everything that you do. Life’s challenges are worth it if you use them as learning opportunities.
Be happy when you find a new way to challenge yourself. Attack the challenge with a smile. Think of it as an opportunity to get better. Remind yourself that you will be better when it is completed than you are now.
2) Rest when you need it
When you work out, microscopic tears form in your muscles. As they heal, your muscles grow and get stronger. The next time you work out, you will be able to add more strain. In order to properly heal, they need rest.
Without some rest, your muscles and your mind will not be able to recover properly for the next challenge.
If you feel burned out, defeated, or otherwise unwilling to push forward, take a moment to rest. Hard work can be rewarded with rest. Take the rest time to figure out your next step. When you feel revived, get back out there.
3) Be happy with your growth
You’ve probably heard the expression, “You should never be satisfied.” There is some truth to that, but you shouldn’t let that get in the way of your happiness. There’s a fine line between wanting to get better and never being happy with where you are at.
Grow for yourself. Challenge yourself because you want to. If you aren’t sure why you’re doing something, or if you’re doing something because it is what other people want, change that. You deserve to do what you want with your life.
Try your best to be happy with the journey. Be happy that you made the decision to try to grow. Your mood and your life will be happy, even if there is still work to do.
