When we grow, we acquire new skills and broaden our knowledge. We gain new ways of seeing and thinking. And our experiences in life become richer.
While all of this filling up is a good reason to pursue growth, I think the best reason is to get in on the joy of pouring out. When you pour out something valuable you’ve learned, you’re enriching the lives of others. It’s never a takeaway or a minus for you; it’s always a plus. Pouring out never leaves you empty. It only makes the world a more full place.
