Is it guaranteed that I’ll reach 6 feet?

Last updated on January 2, 2023


Hey minister,

I want to know my remaining growth left. I am very confused and it bothers me because being short today is a bit of a problem. Here are my heights over the years:

  • 11 – 5’0.5
  • 12 – 5’1 (I noticed pubic hairs and armpit hairs)
  • 13 – 5’3 ( ejaculation, height spurt at 13-14)
  • 14 – 5’6 ( voice changed, leg hair, arm hair, and facial hair)
  • 15 – 5’8 ( mustache is noticeable)

I am not sure if I am in stage 4. I have not grown any muscle yet. So can you please help me, is it guaranteed that I will reach 6 feet?


Few things in life are guaranteed since there is very little that is completely in our control. “The lot is cast into the lap, but its every decision is from the Lord” (Proverbs 16:33).

From the information you supplied, it looks like you were in stage 2 from 11-13. You were in stage 3 from 13-15. My guess is that you are at the start of stage 4. Remember that is it just a guess since I can’t see you. Boys in stage 4 grow about 1 to 3 inches during stage 4. Since your growth spurt was on the lower end of the scale, I would expect you to only grow about 1 to 2 inches more before your growth completely stops.
