In the Personal Growth Race Slow and Steady Wins

ingenuityI’ve been thinking a lot about the pace of growth in the world in all of us. Anyone with any level of sensitivity can feel the accelerating rate of change. It does not take any sophisticated equipment to know that our evolution is speeding up.

And when you recognize that, when you feel that, it often feels important to “keep up” with the pace of the change. But in our attempts to “keep up” it’s easy to try to make too many changes in our personal growth and evolution. And when you try to make too many changes it’s far too easy to overload the system and blow your circuits.

That’s why it’s so important to remember that when it comes to personal growth Slow and Steady wins the race.

No matter what is going on in the world around you, no matter how fast the collective is evolving, it is crucial that you choose a deliberate, consistent and steady course in your personal growth.

I’ve written a couple of posts on this in the past. Check out Too Many Personal Growth Variables, and Split Testing for Personal Growth.

But the key is acceptance. Self Acceptance.

Accept yourself where you are. Even as you focus on moving forwad, growing and evolving, trust that you are exactly where you are supposed to be. Trust that your pace of growth is perfect.

And remember, no matter how fast or slow your personal growth may be, there is never an end. Unlike with the Tortoise and Hare, there is no finish line. Your growth will never end. So don’t be in such a rush.

Enjoy the journey.
