One of our inherent human desires is to continuously seek more in life, whether it is more joy, more happiness, more success, better health or better relationships.
When we are growing or making progress in life, that’s when we feel most alive and have a high level of self-confidence and self-esteem.
When we feel we are not making forward progress, it can:
- Affect the way we interact with others.
- Cause us to have a low level of optimism.
- Affect our mood, which in turn, can affect the experiences we have each day.
As making progress is built in to who we are and how we function, we typically shouldn’t have to wait for signs to inform us that it’s time to move forward in life.
