Growth is a fundamental desire of all human beings. Growth is at the root of everything that gives us a feeling of accomplishment,​ satisfaction,​ meaning, and progress. Rosabeth Moss Kanter said, “Everything looks like a failure in the middle,” you will continue to grow if you do the following. There are 10 laws. Here are the 10 Laws of Lifetime Growth.\\ \\ 
 +  - Always make your future bigger than your past.
 +  - Always make your learning greater than your experience.
 +  - Always make your contribution bigger than your reward.
 +  - Always make your performance greater than your applause.
 +  - Always make your gratitude greater than your success.
 +  - Always make your enjoyment greater than your efforts.
 +  - Always make your cooperation greater than your status.
 +  - Always make your confidence greater than your comfort.
 +  - Always make your purpose greater than your money.
 +  - Always make your question greater than your answer.
 +\\ If everything you have done until now is just the beginning, what’s next? If I were sitting here three days from today looking back on today, what would have to have happened in that time for me to be happy with my progress? Establish a relationship with your bigger future. The smartest people are those who can transform even the smallest events or situations into breakthroughs and thinking and action. Look at all of life as a school and every experience as a lesson and your learning will always be greater than your experience. \\ \\ Every experience you have ever had has two parts to it. The thing about the experience that worked and the thing that did not work. By work we mean the part that moved you forward, by did not work we mean the part that is the opposite. Once you identify these two aspects of every experience, you begin to become aware of new ways to maximize what worked and to bypass or eliminate what did not work. Carry one thing with two hands rather than two things with one hand. You don’t get to choose all the experiences you have, but you do get to choose what to do with them. \\ \\ You can use them as raw material for learning, harnessing the emotional energy behind them to try to make good use of those lessons. The only way to guarantee that rewards will continually increase is to not think too much about them. Instead, continue making an even more significant contribution by helping others to eliminate their dangers, capture their opportunities and maximize their strengths. Greater rewards will automatically result from this and your future will continue to be filled with increasingly rewarding ways to contribute. Always focus on creating new kinds of value for larger numbers of people and you ensure that your contribution is always greater than your reward. Abundance flows to contributors. People want to align themselves with others who are making great contributions. Continually work to surpass everything you have done so far and your performance will always be greater than your applause. \\ \\ Practice proactive gratitude. We are taught to thank someone when he or she does something for us, but there is much more in the world to be grateful for. We can be proactively grateful by appreciating more about the world we live in, the people we know and we don’t know, and everything that creates the environment of which we are able to grow and live productive lives. When you are connected, committed and humble there is always more to learn and you are open to learn from anything and anyone who might have something to teach you. Gratitude by its very nature also automatically works to eliminate three mental characteristics that most undermine individual success in an interactive world. Isolation, egotism and arrogance. Express your gratitude. We end every meeting and every encounter with our team by expressing the gratitude for the opportunity in a heart felt way. Expressing gratitude almost always has a ripple effect. \\ \\ Approach everything you do with a sense of play and you will ensure that even though you still get as good or better results, your enjoyment is always greater than your efforts. We see this often with entrepreneurs who trap themselves in managing their teams and handling details that would be much better off left to others. Instead of strengthening client relationships,​ selling or coming up with innovative solutions, they should do whatever that really charges them up and creates their best results. Continually strive for higher goals and achievement and your confidence will always be greater than your comfort. \\ \\ Transform fear into action. Be fearless, do not fear anything. The biggest challenge to leaving our comfort zone is always fear. Fear that we will fail, fear that someone will discover that we are not as good as they thought we were, fear that we will lose something important, fear that people won’t understand what we are doing, the list goes on and on. Confidence is the ability to transform these fears and to focus on thinking and action. Here is a secret about a goal. What matters most is not whether you achieve the goal but that the goal gets you striving because striving leads to growth. Often the most valuable results are actually unexpected by products of pursuing other goals. Walking away from money to maintain integrity with your values and sense of purpose forces you to grow. Listen to your heart and your gut. Your sense of purpose is more connected to your heart or to your gut instinct than to your head. \\ \\ But all growth lies in the territory of the unknown. What we already know is in the past. What we have yet to discover is the future. Always make your questions bigger than your answers and you will keep drawing yourself into a bigger future with new possibilities. There is nothing more powerful than a question. The reason is that the mind can’t ignore a question. Questions open the doors of inquiry which is how we imagine and discover new possibilities. Growth comes not from having the definitive answer, but from the activity of being engaged in a conversation around the great question. Great questions are open-ended, that is they don’t have easy answers. I wonder, how far can I go? What do I have to become to get all that I want? Approaching life by always asking bigger questions allows you to create for yourself a constant sense that there is always more to discover in greater depth of things you thought you knew. It keeps you open to all kinds of possibilities for greater learning and increased contribution. \\ \\ Now I will ask you to take a leap of imagination to a much bigger future. Imagine a world where all people and organizations habitually operate according to the Laws of Lifetime Growth.
