Growth is essentially valuable to attain our goals, both big and small. Our growth is the key to becoming a better person. It’s also one of the main reasons I started my home blog project. I get to educate and remind myself of the importance of growth while also encouraging my lovely readers to do the same.
I’m a firm believer in the benefits of growth for all. So I’m here to help you grow, and I know you’re here to help me grow as well!
But how can we speed up growth? How can we boost our growth to become a better person than yesterday? Let me share this with you!
Six Habits That Can Speed Up Your Growth

#1. Learn from Failure Stories.
Success stories can be inspiring, but they can also be deceptive. We have a tendency to see only the beautiful side of things, failing to recognize the process and difficulties that go into any success story. On the other hand, looking at failure stories will help you appreciate and comprehend the process a person went through.
It’s easier for you to understand how these failure stories helped the person involved in decision-making, accepting changes, recognizing losses, and moving on. Why? Because we are naturally sensitive to negativity as humans. Failures are so relatable and riveting because they are painful and challenging experiences.
#2. Do What You Love.
To be honest, it doesn’t mean it’s trendy to me; it means it’s good for you. Following the crowd or simply going with the flow isn’t as satisfying as doing what you love. So many stories of regret have one in common. And that is not following their dreams – not doing what they love.
Doing what you love can sometimes require you to step outside of your comfort zone. It can also mean losing something you believe is valuable for you, but there is a greater good waiting for you in reality! So, start exploring and figuring out what you love doing. And then do it.
#3. Act Now.
Words are inspiring, but action gives those words meaning. So, take action now. Begin doing things that will help you in achieving your goals.
One of my dreams is to be a helping hand to those who need advice, support and want to put their spare time to good use. At first, I didn’t know-how. But I didn’t give up and started small. So, I ended up creating and maintaining this blog. I understand that someone out there is currently in the dark and trying to figure out what to do next. I’ve been there before. And I believe that with my small act of creating content, I can help someone find an answer.
#4. Be a good listener.
Nobody knows everything, even if he is the president of the world’s most powerful and wealthy country. To run a country, any president of any country has many advisers from various fields of expertise. If a country leader isn’t a good listener and instead becomes an arrogant and passive listener, he won’t succeed—look at Trump.
#5. Love yourself and keep yourself healthy.
In social terms, we are taught to love and respect others before we love and respect ourselves. Perhaps because we grew up in morally sound communities, I grew up in a Christian household, and I was taught and shaped by the golden rule, “Do unto others as you would have them do unto you.” So far, I’ve been advocating for this rule.
But, to put it into context, the message is to love yourself. If you love yourself and want to be treated with love and respect by others, you will do the same for those around you, no matter who they are.
And, of course, your best wealth is your health! There is nothing more or less.

#6. Always be curious, and don’t be afraid to ask questions.
My 18-year-old niece once told me that she is afraid of being laughed at at school if she gives incorrect answers or questions to their teacher during class.
As a result, I asked her what would happen if she remained silent. And she responded that I wouldn’t make a good impression on my teacher because she might think I don’t know anything and I wouldn’t learn from knowing the correct answer.
Then I asked her what would happen if she was laughed at or questioned by her teacher because of her incorrect answer. And she replied, “I’ll be embarrassed, but I’ll learn from it and know the correct answer.”
The majority of us are in the same boat. We are afraid of being judged if we allow our curiosity to speak for itself. We believe that being curious and asking questions will make us inept or small. However, education and learning are never-ending processes. As I previously stated, we do not know everything. Someone is always better than us. So, always be curious and gain knowledge by asking questions.
Yes, believe it or not, these are the things I’m working on as well. Unfortunately, unavoidable situations can stifle our growth; however, we must remember not to be afraid and press on. Your growth is a valuable time saver. The better you get, the faster you’ll reach your goals! So, keep these six habits in mind if you want to speed up your growth.
- Learn from failure stories.
- Do what you love.
- Act now.
- Be a good listener.
- Love yourself and keep yourself healthy.
- Always be curious, and don’t be afraid to ask questions.
