Are you growing...?

Or are you coasting?

There's a wise saying, "Nothing coasts uphill." You can coast for some time on your past achievements, but there will come a point when the wheels stop, and you either need to provide inertia, or risk sliding back downhill.

Learn this eternal truth: There is never a point in your life where you can step back and say, "I"m done, I've done everything I wanted to do, and now I'm going to relax and be happy."

So if this is the case, if there really is no final destination that we think we need to reach...what do we learn from this?

The journey is the destination. Growth is the path. Grow... or die.

Determine your own growth path, and instead of living life as if you're on some highway to an offramp, the arrival of which will solve all your problems...wake up, enjoy the ride, and make it interesting.

As has been said here before, you are never more alive than when pursuing something you believe treat your goals not as destinations, but as waystations...a place along the path that shows you where you are.

The person you are isn't determined so much by your goals, but more by the path you're on.

Now go jump start your day.
