Helpful Thought for the Day on Growth

Growth is more important than Absolute Achievement.

What do I mean by this?

We are living in such a goal orientated society and thus, have been conditioned to believe that if we do not achieve to a certain standard, then we are not good enough.

A healthier and more helpful way of thinking is to thrive for growth rather than absolute achievement.

Consider the following:

Imagine that you have 2 children or 2 employees.  One is 90% perfect but think he is better than everyone, and do not learn and grow from his mistakes.  Whereas the other one is 1% perfect, but is willing to learn from his mistakes and grow from it.  Who do you prefer to have?  Who will triumph in the end?
