Recognize wins and celebrate them, but don’t get stuck partying and patting yourself in the back.
There’s always room for growth. To become better.
When you stop growing, you don't realize your fullest potential. And isn't that the saddest thought? To waste the opportunities you've been given. To stagnate. And to get left behind.
It’s a balance: You’re never content with your progress—you always want to become a better version of yourself. And yet, you’re also always content, because you’re making progress. Because there are wins throughout the path to actualization.
On a scale of 1 to 10, with 10 being the best version of yourself, you can never be a 10. It's a goal, but the most you can do is a 9—because growth doesn't stop. Because as you grow, more potential opens up, more opportunities present themselves. Then 10 point mark moves further.
There's a phrase I've always loved: infinite learning.
Growth is limitless.
