GROWTH PERSPECTIVE - Shifting From Goals to Growth

"Few things have a greater positive impact than shifting from goals to growth. Why do I say that? Because the benefits are so numerous.

Make growth your priority and . . .

• You will unlock and achieve your potential.
• You will feel good about yourself.
• You will strengthen your values and abilities.
• You will grow in humility and self-awareness.
• You will become more so you can do more.
• You will be an example for others to follow.

I want to say one more thing about shifting from goals to growth before we move on to the next leadershift.

Being a goal-oriented person means having more of a short-term mind-set. We often reach for goals because we want the positive feelings that come from quick achievements.

But when we make the shift to focusing on growth, it means we've begun to adopt a long-term mind-set. By focusing on growth, we go from improving in spurts to improving day after day to reach our potential. That consistency compounds."
