Personal growth is when you know you have a fire deep inside of you. And, like it or not, it must be acknowledged, encouraged, and allowed to burn strong with your greatness. If that sounds grandiose, it really isn't.
3 Truths About Your Personal Growth
Truth #1: You do have a fire inside you.
Truth #2: Your fire is unique to only you.
Truth #3: Your are responsible for it's heat.

3 Steps to Get HOT
You're probably wondering how to keep your schedule like it is AND get your fire burning, right? I know. I thought the same thing! But, there is a way to light that first flicker of heat.
Step 1: Stop doing one thing you no longer want/need to do. Example? Always being the one volunteer that always bakes. Let someone else do it.

See your personal growth as something you want (and will) work on. You have a fire inside of you. Find it, encourage it, and live it.
