What Is Progress?

What is progress? What does it mean to you? According to C. S. Lewis, “We all want progress. But progress means getting nearer to the place where you want to be.

And if you have taken a wrong turning, then to go forward does not get you any nearer.

If you are on the wrong road, progress means doing an about-turn and walking back to the right road; in that case the man who turns back soonest is the most progressive man.”

Progress does not mean getting stuck in a rut. It means moving closer to your dream. It means taking responsibility for your life. It means having the courage to face your fears. It means having the courage to tell yourself the truth. It means being your true self. It means having the opportunity to do what you love to do. It means having the courage to walk away from the wrong people. That is progress.

Remember, it does not matter what you do, if you are not on the right track, it is never too late to turn back. Do not stuck yourself in a rut. Because progress means getting back on track. Will you get back on track?
