In taking time to think, I found that I had grown in ways I didn't expect. One of the most significant ways is my increased empathy. In general, I take the time to consider others' situations, but I have found that of late, I do so more frequently and with less judgement. We rarely ever know someone's whole story and by avoiding judgement as much as possible, we can build stronger working relationships and grow as individuals.
Being challenged also forces you to either quit or rise to the challenge. In doing the latter, I have developed stronger will power and discipline.They guided me through obstacles and turned each one into a learning experience. I am grateful for that, because no moment has passed without progress.
Hope you all are having a great week!
