Last week, I went out submitting proposals to organize a free one day skill acquisition enlightenment seminar to some schools. The purpose of the seminar is to basically open the eyes of the students to the importance of acquiring skills that will prepare them for either their career or business in the future.
And so, when I got to a particular town where I grew up (lived there for 20 years), I began to see the massive developments that had taken place. The once quiet village was now a commercial town with lots of residential houses converted to shops and warehouses.
In fact, my dad sold the house he built on the outskirts of the town about 4 years ago, as the place was no longer conducive for living. He used the proceeds of that sale to complete his house in another state.
Many people whom I knew in the past were no longer there.
For every new building I saw, I had a flashback to the previous building or structure that was there in the past. This didn't come as a rude shock to me but it made me realize that development (or growth) is essential to the wellbeing of individuals.
There was a particular road I passed through and discovered that houses had been built there reducing the road to something like a footpath.
I was amazed.
What am I trying to draw out from all of these?
It's simply this question…
Are you growing?
Are you really growing?
Are you doing things that will move your life forward spiritually, maritally, financially and otherwise?
This is a time for sober reflection – so that you don't just continue to advance in age without any meaningful growth or contribution to life.
