Maturity Quotient

What’s your maturity quotient

Found this definition of maturity provided by Buddhist Lamas doing the social media rounds. Thought I’d play my part in paying it forward and coining a new term that I hope will become a good metric to measure for yourself.

So say hello to MQ or Maturity Quotient.

What’s maturity? According to the definition provided by Buddhist Lamas…

  1. Maturity is when you stop trying to change others, … instead focus on changing yourself.
  2. Maturity is when you accept people as they are.
  3. Maturity is when you understand everyone is right in their own perspective.
  4. Maturity is when you learn to “let go”.
  5. Maturity is when you are able to drop “expectations” from a relationship and give for the sake of giving.
  6. Maturity is when you understand whatever you do, you do for your own peace.
  7. Maturity is when you stop proving to the world, how intelligent you are.
  8. Maturity is when you don’t seek approval from others.
  9. Maturity is when you stop comparing with others.
  10. Maturity is when you are at peace with yourself.
  11. Maturity is when you are able to differentiate between “need” and “want” and are able to let go of your wants.
  12. You gain Maturity when you stop attaching “happiness” to material things!!

You can calculate your Maturity Quotient (MQ) by adding one point for every definition you check off and computing your percentage out of a maximum of 12 points.
