Your growth scares stagnant people

Ever since childhood, I have striven fof greater and greater things and opportunities. I knew I had to work hard and did so. I never stopped working hard. And, thus I have continued to grow. I’ve grown in terms of social capitol, resources, confidence and world perspective.

As I’ve continued to grow, there have been times where I’ve been astounded to come across people who don’t care for growth. They are happy staying just where they are in every way conceivable. Stagnation. It’s not a good thing for our national economy. Nor is it good for one’s personal life. It’s like just sitting on the couch and letting life pass on by.

What has shocked me even more, is those people who are stagnant and look upon your growth with anger, resentment, and maybe hatred. It goes beyond jealousy. It’s fear. Perhaps they are scared of being left behind. Perhaps they are afraid of how they will look like in comparison. Perhaps they are fearful of setbacks and failures. But fear should not rule the day. Nor should a comfort with stagnation.
