Why is it that personal growth is hard, but the growth and expansion of a project or business is fun, even if challenging?
How does the same word even get used for these two experiences?
Or is “personal growth” really just a euphemism and “character development” a more accurate phrase? Though even development has that positive and proactive sense to it.
We all know the old truism that grit and character are built through challenge and hardship. Internal growth is not-fun to go through. External growth is often quite pleasant or exciting.
External growth is just the mirror image of internal growth- reflections of each other on the same vortex.
