“The comfort zone is one of the greatest enemies of human potential. When people get into a comfort zone, they strive to stay in that comfort zone...you need the courage to continually move yourself in the direction of your biggest goals and ambitions. You need to be willing to face discomfort in order for you to grow”
The race is not always won by the fastest runner. Often, a day is not always conquered by the one who has the most skill, the most smarts, the most talent or the most money. The person who tries to live each day to its potential is the one who does not give up, the one who is not afraid of hard work, the one who doesn’t let setbacks stop momentum.
Most people want the rewards of hard work, BUT very few are willing to put it the effort that is necessary.
I believe in becoming your best in whatever it is you do. As Christians, we are taught to do life in word and action to the Glory of God. Working hard at being your best, making the most out of whatever God has given or called you to do, is a way to thank God for the day that has been given to you.
Growth can be painful and it does mean that you have to get out of your comfort zone. It means being inconvenienced, but if you are not growing then you are not changing. And, if you do not change, you stay STUCK!
Striving for something and living a life of significance, does not always feel good. It often hurts, it is uncomfortable, and sometimes it is downright painful. You have to do hard things to get where you want to go. Sometimes it is simply just about getting uncomfortable to do what is right or what matters.
There are areas in most of our lives where we can always do better, or improve in some way. It’s going to require us to dig deep, embrace the SUCK and work hard. We may not be able to change our circumstances, but we can learn and grow and develop our character from our experiences. We do not have to give up after failure, - we can be determined to find a way to make something work. It is up to us...the key word here is WORK!!! Put in the work and there will be no regrets...
