“Life without progress becomes unendurable, and the person who ceases from growth must either become an imbecile or insane. The greater and more harmonious and well-rounded your growth is, the happier you will be.” Wallace D Wattles
Don’t you just love the language from the early 20th century! There’s no such thing as standing still, you are either moving backwards of forwards. If you think you are standing still in comparison to everyone around you, you will be going backwards. Everything in life is either growing or dying. It’s in our spiritual nature to want to expand and express ourselves in a greater way. When you are not progressing in life, you are cutting off and denying your spirit the joy of expansion and expressing.
So if you don’t want to ‘become an imbecile or insane,’ it is important to consciously, and deliberately, develop yourself emotionally, intellectually and spiritually on a regular basis. In every moment there is an opportunity to express yourself authentically and purposefully. Are you aware of how your life looks and feels when you are living on purpose? Choose to notice when you are in the flow of life and therefore living authentically, and notice how much happier you feel.
Enjoy having well-rounded growth!
