Growth Traps

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”

 

 

Question:

Which of these gaps above have caused you to neglect growing or developing your gifting the way you know you could have?
