Growth is not easy. Everything worthwhile comes with a price.
In his book, “The 15 Invaluable Laws of Growth“, leadership expert John C Maxwell unpacks 8 Growth Traps that hinder us from being intentional about moving forward in life. These powerful and though provoking points create a great checklist for ourselves as we analyse whats holding us back.
Use them to see if there is something holding you back from growth;
1. The Assumption Gap –
“I assume that I will Automatically Grow”
2. The Knowledge Gap –
“I don’t Know How to Grow”
3. The Timing Gap –
“It’s Not the Right Time to Begin”
4. The Mistake Gap –
“I’m Afraid of Making Mistakes”
5. The Perfection Gap –
“I Have to Find the Best Way”
6. The Inspiration Gap –
“I Don’t Feel Like Doing It”
7. The Comparison Gap –
“Others are Better Than I Am”
8. The Expectation Gap –
“I Thought It Would Be Easier”
Which of these gaps above have caused you to neglect growing or developing your gifting the way you know you could have?
