Iron Sharpens Iron

When you were born you were never handed a manual, given instructions, or shown videos on how to operate. You relied on your parents to teach you, to mold you, and to guide you into how they thought you should be. The guidance that you were given was hopefully in good faith. and as such you grew up into who you are today.

However, your growth certainly does not stop.

When you become an adult you still need the help of others to grow into the best version of yourself.

As iron sharpens iron, so one person sharpens another. – Proverbs 27:17

As the timeless Proverb illustrates, leaning on one another acts in the same way iron sharpens iron. 

The will to grow only grows stronger when in the company of someone who shares similar goals. You will gain insight, have someone to lean on when you feel like a failure, and a person to go to as a confidant. Not only will you gain much from others, they will gain from their relationship with you which can be equally rewarding.

If you’re stuck in a rut and have no one to turn to, that is most likely not the fault of others, but rather your own. Be proactive in seeking out others whith your interests and goals. Your goal will be achieved faster and easier with the help of another.
