Grow or Decay: It’s Your ChoiceGrow or Decay: It’s Your Choice

Whether you grow from right now or steadily decay is entirely up to you.

Not surprisingly, your attitude subconsciously drives this decision; and some people with an attitude of decay aren’t even aware that this is what’s impeding their personal and professional growth.

So, if you’re not sure whether you are on path for growth or decay, examine these lists and see which one sounds most like you (and choose to start working from the list that sounds most like the person you want to be):


      • I’m tired.
      • I give up.
      • I’m not smart enough.
      • This is boring.
      • Can we do it tomorrow?
      • This is too hard.
      • I don’t want to.
      • This stinks.
      • I can’t do this.
      • What difference does it make?
      • There’s nothing to do.
      • Can’t we just sit awhile?
      • No.


      • I’m ready for anything.
      • I can fix it.
      • I’ll give it my all.
      • I want to learn.
      • Let’s do this.
      • I’m excited!
      • I won’t give up.
      • I can figure it out.
      • I’ll try again.
      • I want to do it now.
      • This is fun.
      • I don’t want to sit around.
      • Yes!
