But, if you're like me or even close, I am not a guy who wants the world to just "happen" to me. I'd rather "happen" to it? Right?
Why not just be intentional?
Create, foster and orchestrate opportunities for growth.
A few ideas:
· Read non-fiction books? (are you reading any books?)
· Listen to Podcasts? (so many excellent podcasts out there..)
· Take that online class?
· Go to an event of some kind. (lecture, church, volunteer,etc)
· Find people you want to become like…and you can learn from…and ask them for 30 minutes of their time. (Entrepreneur? wealthy? excellent parent? brain surgeon? excellent pie maker?)
A sure way to grow and become more knowledgeable is to ASK for time and ASK questions. Yes, there may be some people that won't give you the time of day. However, most people who you would like to become will be more than happy to share their wisdom with you. Heck, they'd probably even take it as a complement you'd even ask.
Nothing worthwhile comes easy…it will always take effort.
And so it is with growing me (and you).
