Do you know where you want to be? Do you know how to get there? Are you ready to start moving (if you are not already moving)?

Before you make any move to change your life, to change your career, to change your relationships with people, you MUST know why you are doing it. You must know why you are making the change that you are making. You must know where you are going to and how to get there.

It is important to know where you are going to, because if you don’t know where you are going to, people will not know how to follow you. In order to that, you must prepare. You must be ready to go all the way to the end. It is one thing to know where you are going, and it is another to go all the way to the end without giving up. John Pierport said, “The first step towards getting somewhere is to decide that you are not going to stay where you are.” It is okay to stay where you are if you have nothing to lose. But if you have something important to lose, like time and growth, it is not okay to stay where you are.

If you want to grow in life, staying in the same place is not the answer. Unless you are getting what you want. Unless you are happy to stay there forever. If not, you must keep asking the right questions. You must keep going. You must not be satisfied with the status quo. If you do, you will have yourself to blame.

Once you have made the decision to change your situation, do not give up. It is not going to be easy, but you can do it. Don’t listen to people who are not supporting your journey. You are going to be questioning yourself, but keep going. You are going to be doubting yourself, but keep going. Focus on the results. Focus on what you will get when you finally made it to the finish line. In other words, focus on the rewards.

You can do it if you believe you can. You can’t do it if you believe you can’t. I believe you can, and you will.

The real growth is in what you don’t know

The real growth is in what you don’t know, not in what you already mastered. If you want to add to your knowledge, you should spend time with what you don’t know.

It feels good to spend time with what you already know, but you are not gaining anything from doing it. If so, why wasting your time? It feels good to do it. It is comfortable doing it. It does not require extra thinking. It is a prepared food.

Why waste your time with what you’ve already mastered? Instead, spend quality thinking time with what will add value to your life. Spend time with that difficult assignment. Spend time with your homework. Spend time with quality books. Real growth is in what you don’t know. Because it opens a new way of thinking about things. It stimulate creativity, because you want to know what makes it special. It forces you to read more about the subject.

Doing what you haven’t done before adds value to your life. Doing what you have always been doing takes away something special form you: your time.

If you want to grow, go after what you don’t know, and it will expand your thinking.
