Often the best way to rise higher is to go lower.
If you want to feel happier and be lifted up and feel like you’re dancing with the angels, you need to go deeper. You need to dive into what has hurt you and forgive others, yourself and heal.
To soar in your career, you often need to do things that seem underneath you. For instance, to start a business, you’re not only the boss but the janitor, trash-taker-outer, errand-maker, servant. You do what it takes to win, even doing the most menial, lowly jobs to rise.
Humility is required to learn and grow. Like a fifty-year-old who goes back to college, you have to become like a child again; or to learn a new language, you start by speaking like a baby; or to gain expertise, you must be willing to constantly say “I don’t know,” until you get to know little by little and, over time, you grow to know a lot. Learning requires stooping low and fumbling around in the nest before you fly.
Don’t fear to reach new depths.
For, new heights await you.
Great stuff JP.
