Growing isn’t just about reading a book, taking a class, learning a new skill or practicing a new discipline. It’s also about investing in the life of another.

“But won’t I waste precious time if I stop and invest in others?” Not at all.

In fact, my experience has shown that investing my time in others is one of the best ways to invest in myself.

It’s important for us to travel with someone on our journey of growth. Could it be your wife, best friend or sibling? You obviously can’t take someone who doesn’t want to go, but most people want to grow. Discern the right traveling companion and get started.

One way to secure a companion is to discover her goals and get involved in her success. When you exert energy on her behalf, don’t be surprised to see her reciprocating concerning yours.
