Before we begin to read the testimonies included here, I would like to ask that we remember that the testimonies presented here are from Growers who have struggles and learned, with and from, the GROW program. They are not here because they have done better or worse than other Growers. We should not compare ourselves to them in that way. This book is broken down into categories by
THE FIVE FOUNDATION OF MATURITY:
Foundations are made of pieces. Before we can use the pieces of knowledge presented here, we must look past all competitive motives, not just our own. Only once we look forward towards our common goal of maturity can we succeed where the writers of these testimonies have both succeeded and failed.
With this in mind, I would like to thank all the Growers who contributed their stories, so that we all may learn from them.
