maturity

Success depends upon maturity!

Maturity is humility. It is being big enough to say,

“I was wrong.” And, when he/she is right, the mature

person need not experience the satisfaction of saying,

“I told you so.”

Maturity is the ability to live up to your

responsibilities, and this means being dependable. It

means keeping your word. Dependability is the

hallmark

of integrity. Do you mean what you say-and do you

say

what you mean? Unfortunately, the world is filled

with

people who cannot be counted on. When you need

them

most, they are among the missing. They never seem

to

come through in the clutches. They break promises

and

substitute alibis for performance. They show up late

or

not at all. They are confused and disorganized. Their

lives are a chaotic maze of broken promises, former

friends, unfinished business and good intentions that

somehow never materialize. They are always a day

late

and a dollar short.

Maturity is the ability to make a decision and stand

by it. Immature people spen their lives exploring

endless possibilities and then doing nothing. Action

requires courage. Without courage, little is

accomplished.

Maturity is the ability to harness your abilities and

your energies and do more than is expected. The

mature

person refuses to settle for mediocrity. He/she would

rather aim high and miss the mark than low-and

make it.

Maturity is the art of living in peace with that which

cannot be changed, the courage to change that which

should be changed, no matter what it takes, and the

wisdom to know the difference
