Life is full of chances to develop more as a person. When you focus on developing further, you get the chance to do a lot of thinking as you become better at various things. While you might not think about it at the time, every chance you take to improve as a person teaches you more about how far you still have to go. No one has ever reached perfection, so we all have a long distance ahead of us.
You have to be aware when you work on self-improvement that it’s ultimately aimed at positive results. It should also be for the right reasons. While you can work to develop into a better person so you can be better than someone else, this is not a noble or generally productive reason for self-improvement. In fact, having negative reasons for improving yourself can ultimately sabotage the entire process. Regardless of the external success a person may achieve, their ultimate success first has to come from wanting to improve for the right reasons.
Ultimately, no matter how much you end up developing, you still have a long way to go. Since no one is ever going to be perfect, you have to understand that you will never be “good enough” unless you decide to stop working to improve. In a case like that, becoming stagnant is inevitable. When you get to a point where you feel like developing is fun and easy, you just might have reached a breakthrough point. On the other hand, you might also have just gotten cocky and forgotten how far you still have to go toward perfection.
