Discomfort in Pursuing Your Dreams

Growth only comes when you allow yourself to be uncomfortable.

Once you achieve one goal and you’re comfortable, then it’s time to allow yourself to be uncomfortable as you press into the next challenge.

Regardless of your age, stretch yourself in pursuing your dreams and desires mentally, emotionally, spiritually and physically.

Growth isn’t fun or easy but it’s necessary for the next level of achievement. Athletes understand this principle and inspire us to do the same.

Strength to strength.

Glory to glory.

How to Get Strong–Allow the Struggle

“You can’t help them, can you?” I observed to my friend as we gazed at an egg incubator with about two dozen eggs. We watched one baby chick struggle as it pecked its way out of the eggshell.

“No, they get stronger as they peck at the shell. If you broke it, they wouldn’t have the strength they need to survive.”

I watched the baby chick peck its way out until finally it flung its body out of the shell and flopped. The chick tried to get up and fell, tried to get up and fell again, over and over.  The chick flapped its little wet wings and tried to walk on its huge webbed feet but couldn’t.
