Success Depends Upon Maturity
Maturity is humility. It is being humble enough to say,
"I was wrong." Also, 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 spend their lives exploring
endless possibilities and then doing nothing. Action
requires courage. Without courage, little is
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.
