My Road of Growth
Author:Mansoor Ahamed

Growth, an absolute amalgamation of struggle, pain, sacrifice and patience. I believe the essence of growth cannot be described limiting to any individual’s life, since no human gets same life puzzle. But to illuminate on this phenomenon called growth, we need to understand the attributes of growth.

First let us ask ourselves “What is growth? Have you ever felt your growth (not the physical)?”. Many noble personalities emphasized that growth doesn’t come with comfort and it’s a discipled self-evolution. Growth is purely wisdom which brings every need of you to you as you wished.

Certainly, noble personalities have inspired me. To grow, one need to allow him/her to be flexible, accept failure, have patience, being empathic and respect opinion. Always have your door opened to knowledge and agree to disagree removing ego and repugnance, every human have different prospect and view are the opportunity to understand the values behind the difference. "Strive not to be a success, but rather to be of value." said Albert Einstein which I believe growth is adding value to self and humanity.

Following the questions above, I would like shed some light on, If you have thought wealth is growth then today’s billionaires are perfect fit for growth, if you think most powerful position is growth then today’s most powerful man is growth but fortunately growth isn’t just wealth or power and never can be confined. A humble man on the street is growth, a high self-esteem woman is growth, respect for fellow human is growth, understanding colleague is growth. Don’t worry you are growing until you push each day adding values to you and certainly your growth which will make your dream come true.

You grow when you decide to move, you grow when failures don’t stop you and you grow when time doesn’t define learning. Abraham Maslow, an American psychologist said "One can choose to go back toward safety or forward toward growth. Growth must be chosen again and again; fear must be overcome again and again." Be an inspiration to your offspring, to your country and especially to the future.
