With Responsibility comes Maturity and Growth



How many of us like to take responsibility in life?

We all want to grow and get better in life, but at the same time, we are not ready to take added responsibilities. When you do what you are meant to do, you don’t grow with it. You grow when you do over and above, what has been assigned to you or what comes in your assigned duty.

You may come across young people who are quite mature and you will also find the adults, those who have no sense of life. The only difference in them is of responsibility.

When you run away from the responsibility, you also run away from the opportunity that can take you to another level. From outside, it may appear that you are doing others task, but in reality, you are doing things that will help you to grow.

Growth happens when you jump to the task, where others are not willing to go. Sometimes you have to plunge into the fire so that you can come out as a polished gold.

Its hard to accept responsibilities in daily situations of life. Its very easy to ignore, and pass on the things to somebody else. Especially, if it doesn’t hold your interest.

At the same time, there are people who consciously take up the responsibility of the people or the situation around them, and create the path for themselves for a better life ahead. The person who takes care of others can never fall in their life.

Your failure or success is directly aligned with how selfish or selfless you are, in your daily life.

Remember life has a strange way to respond, and it doesn’t return your favor in the moment, rather it picks its own time and own spot.

I vaguely remember an incident of a marriage, where I was from a bride’s side. The marriage was in a village and so the members from the bride’s side have to make all the arrangements by themselves.

I was part of that member’s crew, who were trying their best to get the things in order.

There was a time, where the ceremony was going on, and it was 15 to 20 minutes left for dinner. Food was prepared in the kitchen, but there were no waiters to either serve or arrange the table. It was a buffet dinner, and we all were waiting for the people (waiter’s) to arrive so that we can take charge of supervision.

Soon, we receive the news, that waiters are not coming for some reason, and everyone was wondering, what to do next. We all were dumbstruck.

At that time, we asked a simple question to ourselves.

What’s the next step?

We took that step and started making arrangements all by ourselves. We have arranged the tables, brought the food from the kitchen to the banquet hall, arranged the food on the table, and took the role of waiter. It took some time for us to get adjusted, but once the things got clear, everything was placed in a short time.

It took some time for us to get adjusted, but once the things got clear, everything was in order in a short period of time.

Even the members of the groom’s side, joined us when they realized that waiters didn’t turn up on time. All in all, it was a wonderful experience and taught me some useful lessons of life.

You should never allow yourself to get caught up in the situation, rather should take the responsibility, and do everything in the moment to take things forward. These allow you to gain maturity in life and simultaneously you grow with the process of life. How to Move Forward in Life?

Life is unpredictable and you should stay prepared for all the unforeseen situations of life. Life never happens the way you imagine things in your mind. So the best way to go about life is to think less and act more so that you can keep yourself away from the illusions of life.

Many times we get into the situation, that we dont want to face. Somehow, we want to run away from such situations. These are the only moments of growth. You want to run away from the situation, because something that you have expected didn’t go, according to your plan. Now it’s the time to face the reality. There are few people, who

There are few people, who hold courage to accept the failure or the reality. The reality is the most appropriate word, as there is nothing called failure in life.

This is the moment when you show courage, and face the reality, to take your life to another level. The moment cannot hold you for a lifetime, but if you show courage to face those moments, you make yourself free from those fear, for the lifetime.

Life is mysterious enough to bring different experiences all the time. Unless you face your reality, you cannot move to the higher truth. With life, there are no shortcuts. You have to walk all the steps before you reach your ultimate destination.

When you walk down the new path or go for the new experiences of life, you learn something new all the time. It’s only the life’s different experiences that help you to attain maturity in life. View Life, as Fresh as, a New Born Child.

Maturity doesn’t come with the age rather it comes with different experiences of life.

Maturity: The Responsibility of Being Oneself

Your daily experiences depend on, how much you are open to life. More you believe in yourself, more you stay open to different experiences of life.

With life, clarity comes when you dive deeper into the things. When you only see things from the surface, it becomes hard to understand those things. When you take conscious interest into the subject and try to know more about the subject, you tend to receive the clarity of it.

In life one thing is certain and that is uncertainty. No way you can predict the outcome of any situation. It may go in any direction. But at the same time, if you take responsibility of the present stage, at least you can guide the life in the direction of your choice, from this point.

You have to show patience in life. Action is important but at the same time, you also have to show patience, so that the solution can come to the surface. Imagine your Life, & hold Patience to Let it Happen.

You can make all the efforts from your end, but then again comes the time when you have to wait. Here you need patience. You have done all those things possible in your hands, and now you wait. Now, you wait for the life to respond.

Your responsibility lies till your effort. Once you have played your part well, then you allow the life to take over, to take you to your destination.
