Growth is development, evolution, progress, increase, expansion. In short, it means CHANGE. To be in motion means to move, act, engage in an activity, or to shift something.
I define “growth in motion” as a phrase that describes a way of being in relationship with oneself. It is a process of living consciously. This means you have to take a very close look at your habits and authentically evaluate which ones are overdue and need to move in a different direction.
To be self-regulated, to really know oneself, to continuously empower oneself (both during the good times and hard times), and remain accountable and responsible is what it means to live a Growth in Motion™ lifestyle.
This past year has been a BIG year for CHANGE. It is a tremendous opportunity to review ideas, situations, behaviors and relationships in your life that need adjustments. This kind of change requires focus, a passion for improvement and a hunger for excellence. As a student, you are already tuned into this kind of change anyway. It is a natural fit within the academic environment.
So, while in college, make it a priority to live healthy from the inside out. Make the effort to align your intentions, words, and behaviors with yourself. I promise that if you commit to this now, you will lay the foundation for the path to BALANCE in all areas of your life.
Take Care of Yourself,
“Living a Growth in Motion™ lifestyle!”
