Growing yourself enable you to grow others

Growing yourself enable you to grow others

The 15th and last law, from John Maxwell’s “The 15 Invaluable Laws of Growth,” The Law of Contribution, focuses on the that you can not pass on to others what you have not gone through yourself. I was reminded of that fact with a timely message from a connection on Linkedin I had in 2016; he wrote:

I have been following your journey since we connected back in 2016, and I commend your persistence and intentionality in going after your career goals. You willed yourself into cybersecurity and are now a thought leader in the space.”

As I reflect on this, I think about a quote from John Maxwell “be a river, not a reservoir.” I wanted to make cybersecurity accessible to more people; I wanted to model that you can come from different background and make it in the community. I want to help grow people and have that flow from me rather than keeping it bottled up.

Do you have someone who mentors, coaches, or encourages you to be that better person or strive in your career? Someone who challenges what you think? Who cheers on your dreams? Provides perspective when it is most needed?

Being able to help others grow is a choice; are you making that choice? Are your best efforts focused on making yourself feel good or helping someone else be successful? Are you a “Go-Getter” or a “Go-Giver”?

No matter where you are in your journey, you can always give back to those a couple of steps behind you. However, if you need a coach to help you achieve goals first, feel free to reach out to me at info@cpf-coaching.com
