 “If we’re growing,  we’re always going to be out of our comfort zone.”

~john maxwell

There’s something powerful in knowing you made a different choice. You didn’t let your past reactions get in your way for long and the outcome is surprising.  Maybe your proverbial arnica is chiseling away at the symptoms so you control your brain.  Growth is when the past has no hold on you.

Doing what we know is easy. Years of conditioning becomes our body armor and there may not be any getting in but there’s also no way out. Self inflicted limitations is a state of mind.  Establishing a practice of emotional intelligence will give you fundamental insight. Growth is letting down your shields.

We’re not stuck on some ship heading no where. We are the masters of our vessels and we can steer ourselves onto any path. We are gifted with decision making capabilities and making our choices for the greater good.  Our compass is our thoughts and our thoughts become our lives. Words are powerful and sticking it out is way harder than giving up.  Growth is when you don’t walk away.

There is a false pretense that our greatest progress tends to happen when we have nothing to lose. But all or nothing thinking isn’t the answer.  We have everything to gain and the time to pursue it. Success doesn’t happen over night. Learn to go easy on yourself. Treat yourself as if you were your greatest love and you hold the key. Growth is knowing you have power.  

If we really are one of natures greatest miracle, shouldn’t we act like it?

“And the day came when the risk to remain tight in a bud, was more painful than the risk it took blossom”
