I want you to stop for a moment and think.
Think about where you are in life right now.
Think about your work, your school, or your primary non-cinnamon role.
- ‘Is this the thing I am destined to do?’
- ‘Is this what I have been working towards?’
- ‘Have I arrived?’
- ‘Or is this simply leading me to where I am going?’
It is easy to think that where you are right now is your story, role, or great achievement.
But if you are growing, there is always more. Like the sizes at a Big and Tall clothing store.
There are new chapters. New challenges. New knowledge. New capabilities. And new identities. And if you are Mork from Ork, there is Nanu Nanu.
I have been surprised by how many doors I have passed through at the back of wardrobes. But instead of finding lions, and witches, I keep finding new opportunities and perspectives.
These doors have led me to great new experiences that I didn’t realize were coming. But now I expect more incredible things ahead. Which is probably how Dave Grohl feels.
It is a beautiful place to be in your life, career, or avocation when you expect more and better roles in your future because growth and transformation have become the rule, not the exception.
Keep going. Keep Growing. There is more and better ahead.
