”If you’re comfortable you’re not growing.”
This is the quote that keeps popping up over and over the last week or so. Not sure who first said it but as I am thinking about where I was, where I am now, and where I dream to be…..and with a New Year quickly approaching I have decided to use it as a reminder and motivation when I start to feel lazy or apathetic about those things I was once driven to pursue. I have heard this saying both in speaking on growth in your personal walk with Jesus and when trying to grow your business or move forward in your career, education, or whatever your passion is. It also got me thinking about continuing to take those baby steps even if it feels as though you are moving at a snails pace. Don’t give up! If you trip and fall on your face…Hey guess what?!?! Your still moving! It’s too easy to stay in “pause” mode. Always waiting for the right time. Counting on things to line up before you take that leap of faith. Embrace that uncomfortable feeling of the unknown and step out and in 2017 just do that thing that you have been wanting to do. Pursue that dream that has been tucked away waiting patiently for you to kick your fear to the curb. Take that trip…..write that book…..shed that weight….quit that job…..start that new business venture……forgive that person…..mend that relationship. Give it your all. Put your whole heart into it and you don’t have to worry about failure! If it doesn’t turn out how you expected you have still grown. You went for it instead of waiting another year and being at exactly the same place. The beauty of pursuing a dream and having it not work out is that you get to pick a new dream!
