Does your youth or teen have a plan for their personal growth? Do You?
We can all probably admit having a plan is a good idea if we want to go anywhere. Whether or not you or they have a plan (yet) or not it’s important to recognize Growth doesn’t just happen.
We infact need to have a bit of intentionality and we can get further, faster, if we learn to identify what are known as “Growth Traps”.
Here are two that may help your youth (and you) -
The first is the Knowledge Gap. That is the voice in our head saying “I don’t know how to grow.” For today’s youth they often just haven’t thought much about what they could or should be doing to grow. You, as a trusted voice in their life can help them overcome this one. Show them some places they can lean into to begin creating their own growth plan.
The second is the Timing Gap. This can be either “It’s not the right time to begin” or “I dont’ (think) I have the time to begin.” To which I say if you didn’t begin three days ago, today is the next best time to start, and you don’t have time not to make time to grow.
Whatever the growth traps are that may be holding back the youth in your life (or you) I’d love to help unpack and create a plan for their personal growth. Book a Complimentary Discovery Session with me today - together we’ll make a plan and get them (or you) on track before we hit the New Year!
Make it a Great Day,
