The Growth Bully Founder and CEO Stephen Ellul celebrated his 25th birthday last week, along with almost two years since he founded the marketing agency.
Over the last few days, he reflected on the “wild and exciting times” within both his professional and personal life, leading to him listing 25 things he is grateful for. While he released the first 12 last week, he topped off the list with the remaining 13 on Monday.
He started off by expressing gratitude to the people around him and the “unwavering support” they have shown him.
He added that he is grateful for having the chance to work on what “inspires” and “excites” him, with this also allowing him to connect with people on a “deeper level”. Mr Ellul said that he has been able to learn every single day, while also staying positive.
Time management and a work-life balance have been at the forefront of his life in recent years, and he has maintained them by having some “time alone in nature” and establishing his own “safe space”. He has also sought to give back to the community, while also following his passion.
He said that he is grateful for “being true” to himself and others, and acknowledged that “every day is a challenge”, yet he is “ready” to face each one.
Mr Ellul also voiced his gratitude at his ability to stay true to his values, work in teams and adapt to change, as well as being creative and innovative. Additionally, he was also thankful for being able to find a “strong support system” and also “joy outside of work”.
He also reflected on the opportunities he has faced, having to take “calculated risks”, while also having good mental, physical, and emotional health. In recent years he has been able to travel, establish “meaningful connections”, and also express himself through art.
Mr Ellul remarked that he is grateful for each day and that he is “living life to the fullest”. He concluded his reflections by adding that he is “ready for the journey ahead”.
