Growth is the polar opposite of change. No matter what you do, you can be certain that the only constant thing is change. Everything changes, right from time to people, joy to sorrow and failure to success. Growth is not certain. If there is something that you can be certain of is that growth is never constant. You would either keep growing or not grow at all. You may actually head for negative growth if you do not make an attempt or any effort to stay where you are. The bottom line is that growth is not a given, it is not a constant and it doesn’t come to you or to anyone. Growth has to be attained. It has to be worked hard for and must be accomplished.
