The true definition of Maturity

Maturity have been misconceived among various people at various context and time.

Physical growth? Spiritual growth?  Age?  Money? Power? Influence? or Authority?

Which ever way deem it fit to be classified at a particular scenario, maturity is maturity.

Ability to respond to environmental positive and negative changes without changing YOU. Ability to see hope within hopelessness. Capacity to start and finish without hurting your own self. 

Take note of the third definition; anything you initiate and regret doing is a definition of immaturity.

In Finance, maturity is a state of completion of an agreement or terms.

In Agriculture, maturity is a stage of complete growth; does it have to do with the number of fruits produced at that time, or the time  spent before reaching the so called stage?

Maturity is a state of mind, a stage at which you cease to bargain with gain-saying.

Many at times we are found in a situation when someone says we are not matured enough for a task or something. We get to ask ourselves, what makes me matured. Can i be fully matured? Most times we conclude the list of maturity characteristics is endless. I am pleased to tell you that here are 10 basic signs of true maturity which encompasses any other characteristic features of a matured individual :

  1. Growth
  2. Conscience
  3. Commitment
  4. Appreciation
  5. Foresight
  6. Confidence
  7. Happiness and optimism
  8. Learning and curiosity
  9. Responsibility
  10. Love
    Note: The exhaustiveness of the above makes a complete maturity

I will wrap it up by saying maturity is the ability to initiate, start and finish. Thinking through, working through, walking through and seeing through.

Watch out for the daily demystification of these maturity virtues and integration of these BIG 10 that makes one to be (near) perfect.
