Definition: becoming gradually fuller, larger, or better; growing; evolving

• God, our Creator, has stored within our minds and personalities, great potential strength and ability. Prayer helps us tap and develop these powers. — Avul Pakir Jainulabdeen Abdul Kalam (1931–2015) Indian aerospace scientist & statesman; 11th President of India
• The difficulty lies not so much in developing new ideas as in escaping from old ones. — John Maynard Keynes (1883-1946) English economist & philosopher
     Note: Mr. Keynes says escaping. It is more like up-stepping or evolving; especially when new facts, ideas, and/or ideals are discovered and successfully integrated with the previous.

Consideration: Potentials turn into actuals. As long as you are developing, you are becoming your ideals. It may not seem fast enough but steady progress is satisfactory. As your view of the grand reality becomes fuller and clearer you may feel you are shrinking, but only because your view of reality is getting bigger. When looking at the night sky you may feel like an insignificant speck in a vast universe of stars and galaxies; on the other hand, you are a significant spark that can take part in the grand adventure.
