In Growth, Standing Still Can Be Dangerous

Be not afraid of growing slowly. Be afraid only of standing still.

– Chinese’s Proverb

As far as growth is concerned, you can run, fly, hasten, crawl on all fours or even drag yourself along at a pace of a step a minute; just like the snail.

Whatever you do, never, ever, ever stand at a spot.

No waiting.

No procrastinating.

Keep moving, no matter how slow, in the right direction.

You’ll surely get there.


I love proverbs. Hope you do. If you have any related proverb, please share with us in the comment section.

Back in 2013, my love for teaching young learners propelled me into picking teaching as a career. I taught English, Maths and Science in the United Arab Emirates where I lived for ten years. Right now, I live in Coal City, a beautiful hilly area of my country Nigeria.
My website Fiez-writer is a product of my extreme desire to share my writing with the world. Here, I share fiction, poems, thoughts and writing tips.
A huge part of my life is spent with my lovely family and I'm a proud mother to three brilliant kids.
