The soul should always stand ajar, ready to welcome the ecstatic experience.

Without continual growth and progress,
such words as improvement,
achievement, and success
have no meaning.

This week included some time with my friends at CUNA Mutual Group as
well as a return trip to Kettering University in Flint, Michigan to
help students explore strategies for a successful first year of
college. It is worth reminding them, and all of us, that success
arrives at our doorstep only with heaps of “growth and progress.”
Some of us are finding bountiful amounts of growth and progress in
our lives so it is our job to simply hang on and enjoy the ride.
Others may want to jump start their lives by shaking things up with a
big change. Which camp are you in?
Whether you are hanging or shaking, I urge you to enjoy your week!
