Everything grows at an incremental pace; for example, people, plants, animals, businesses, knowledge, status, careers and relationships.

The best way to achieve your career goals and reach professional growth is to focus on taking one step at a time irrespective of how small that step is. With consistent steps, you will gradually achieve what you are aiming for in life. If you want to validate this truth, then read the history of all the significant achievements accomplished by successful individuals and mega corporations.

The law of incremental growth states that the more you enhance the pace of your growth, the more you need to share the same. When you share your knowledge, skills and wealth for the benefit of others, the more you will get in return, and the more you will grow as an individual. Focus on sharing what you have for the collective benefit of your organization and others. You will be compensated in multiple ways in the long run. Look at Warren Buffet and Bill Gates who are among the wealthiest persons in the world. They share their wealth by doing philanthropy works.

Remember that all of us are blessed with positive power. Your thoughts and actions are the ''causes'' and the resultant conditions, whether good or bad, are the ''effects.'' If you always keep positive thoughts in your life and work to discard anything negative, you will only see positive things around you. You will realize that your life situation and your surroundings get transformed into something positive. In short, positive things happen in abundance if you keep positive and happy thoughts. If you have not practised this yet in your professional and personal life, maybe it's about time you did. You will be surprised at the results.

So, what are you waiting for?

Handy Hints:

• Discard negative things and issues that may come your way

• Focus on sharing your knowledge, skills and wealth with others

• Positive things happen in abundance if you keep happy thoughts
