Wake Up Call! – Getting or Growing?


Are you getting or growing?

It was an impassioned conversation. My friend recounted a life of enormous success in his twenties and thirties accompanied by increasing insomnia and anxiety. Something was profoundly off-kilter. His success was being matched by a lack of wellness.

He could have chosen to ignore it or dig deeper.

“Nothing worked – the pills, the emptiness, the exhaustion, and the friendships.” Then he added “A friend suggested I learn meditation.” Within weeks he said he was sleeping and feeling more centered. But most importantly he said, “My life had been about getting and now I wanted to stop and learn about growing. The meditation opened my eyes.”

The result has been a transformed life. In place of the quest for getting – even getting a better spirituality than his friends – he says, “I want to keep growing and finding out how I can make the world around me better.” I wonder what getting or growing will look like today.


  • Is your life about getting or growing?
  • Be present to the choices you can make to grow

Notice how the growing grounds and nourishes your life!
