GROWTH CORNER: How do you Know you are Evolving?


By Rogers Wanambwa 

You no longer make other people's lousy demeanour mean something negative about you, as you realise people have their stuff going on, and sometimes it spills over in your direction.

When something transpires that you don't like, you're slightly less reactive than in the past (even calculatedly pausing for a few seconds longer before reacting is a great sign of growth!)

You're more willing to consider new viewpoints, including the perspectives of people you feel challenged/frustrated by. This doesn't mean you agree with or like those perspectives, but you're willing to pause to consider before jumping to judgment.

You have a quicker bounce-back rate from bad moments and bad days (most likely using positive perspectives and gratitude to refocus yourself to move on).

You speak more kindly to yourself than you have in the past.

You'd instead choose peace over being “right” because it feels better! And you practice this.

You no longer believe in old explanations that kept you stuck, and you're doing things you've always wanted to do (experiences/goals).

When problems hit the fan, you spend less time in a victim mindset and problem focus and jump more quickly looking for solutions.

You say the word “should” less.

You say the word “can't” less.
