It’s time to get uncomfortable!
It’s easy to float along with the status-quo in life. It’s easy to rationalize your way out of opportunities to grow because growth is uncomfortable.
But Who Are You Really Cheating?
It’s obvious that refusing to grow kills your passion for life. If you doubt this, just look at someone who’s caught in a daily grind. They rarely do anything new. They usually complain about life. They have dead eyes. There’s no fire, no zest, no energy!
Do you know someone like this? Of course you do, they’re everywhere!
Then look at someone who challenges themselves regularly. There’s bounce in their step, life in their eyes, infectious energy radiating from them.
What’s the Difference?
In life we’re either growing or dying. There is no standing still. I know that each day is one day less for everyone. No one lives forever. That’s different. Your mind, your heart, your passion, your creativity, your spirituality, your body, the things that make life interesting and meaningful, that’s what I’m talking about!
You know a surefire way to have your body fall apart is to quit using it. Look at any couch potato if you need proof. The same thing goes for your mind, your passion, your creativity and the other things listed above. If you stop challenging yourself in any of those areas you atrophy. That means that part of you starts dying.
How Do You Fight This?
Simple! Do at least one thing new every day. You might go somewhere new, learn about a new subject, talk to a stranger, exercise, write, draw, paint, dance… The list goes on and on. If it feels uncomfortable and it’s good for you then give it a shot!
The Real Question is, “Who Do You Want to Be?”
Life happens no matter what you do. You might as well make it a wonderful life! Stretch your mind! Encourage others! Make a difference! Do something that matters! Make learning and growing a habit. Do this and you’ll be amazed at the results in your life!
You Are The Master of Your Destiny!
