Words Of Wisdom That Inspire Learning And Growth
As far as Paragon Executives is concerned, professional development is the key to success. It keeps people sharp and separates them from the competition. These are the reasons we focus so heavily on learning and growth. A lot of things motivate us to excel, and the following insights are some of the most powerful:
- On Advancement: As Norman Mailer said, “Every moment of one’s existence, one is growing into more or retreating into less.” In other words, the status quo doesn’t cut it. If you aren’t moving forward, you’re moving backward.
- On Action: We do a lot of planning around Paragon Executives goals, but we don’t let it get in the way of action. Henry David Thoreau taught us, “You cannot dream yourself into a character; you must hammer and forge yourself one.”
- On Risk: There’s no room for complacency when it comes to growth. Instead, progress means venturing outside the comfort zone and taking risks. In the words of Pat Summitt, “Change equals self-improvement. Push yourself to places you haven’t been before.”
- On Competition: According to Earnest Hemingway, the self is the most relevant competition. He indicated, “There is nothing noble in being superior to your fellow man; true nobility is being superior to your former self.”Remember these observations as you reach higher, and follow Paragon Executives on Twitter for even more motivation.
