If you don't grow you stagnate and die.
Thomas Edison knew this as a basic need of the soul. On this he says:
"Restlessness is discontent and discontent is the first necessity of progress. Show me a thoroughly satisfied man and I will show you a failure."
Some people say "what is the purpose of life?"
I like to put it differently and say "to live a life it must have purpose!"
You may have heard the story of a man who has worked all his life towards a comfortable retirement.
He has paid off his house, put his children through school to see them off into the world.
He saw his job as a means to an end. He did it well with due diligence and was respected by his peers.
Upon his retirement he was given a gold watch and many congratulations and well wishes from colleagues. Off he goes to enjoy the retirement he has worked so hard for.
Six months later he is dead.
Although extreme or just plain blunt as this story may seem, it has played itself in many different ways over the years with similar outcomes.
Your body, mind and soul all need a purpose. At the core of this purpose is personal growth. And if we are not growing, learning, achieving or striving for something better, a new experience improved knowledge or personal power what have we left?
So never be satisfied with your lot in life, never believe you know all there is to know and never ever think that you have achieved all that you can achieve.
Never be satisfied and become Famous by Morning!
