Growth is about forward movement, stretching beyond the limits that currently define and constrain. It is not about getting bigger or holding a record of unbroken success.

Real growth involves reaching full potential, not maximum size. It happens when old dominating ideas are challenged, and new ones displace them. Growth means progress, not excess; it is fueled by imagination, not expansion.
