May- Goals to Growth
“How will I know if people need encouragement?” John asked. “Simple,” Melvin replied. “If they’re breathing, they need it.”
Because your growth has benefitted from the encouragement of others, your application for this lesson is to become an encouragement to someone else in their growth. One of the best ways to sustain your own growth is to be around growing people—so it makes sense to encourage others to grow!
The point is that your interactions breathe life into the other person instead of extracting life from them. Everyone needs encouragement. It’s just human nature. When you can become an encourager of growth in other people, you’ll find your own shift from goals to growth becoming easier along the way.
