Growth is not always comfortable. Growth requires us to leave where we are, to do something different, to learn something new, to meet someone who annoys us all the time, and to be ready to grow.
We are human beings. We want to grow, but we don’t want to be uncomfortable. In truth, if we really want to grow, to be happy, to expand, we must be willing and be ready to be uncomfortable. There is no success without pain. There is no happiness without darkness. You cannot move from where you are to where you want to be if you are not ready to be uncomfortable.
It feels good to repeat the same thing every day. That is how we operate. We love routine tasks. We love to stay where we are used to. But if you want to stretch yourself, you must leave your safe zone. As Peter Drucker famously said, “If you don’t abandon, you can’t innovate.” Yes, if we want to happy, we must abandon what is making us unhappy.
If we want to grow in life, we must abandon the things that are holding us back. If we want to be healthy, we must take care of our minds. If we want to have peace of mind, we must do the right things.
You cannot expect to have peace of mind if you are doing the wrong things. It is only the right things that will bring you peace of mind. If you do right, expect right. If you do wrong, expect wrong. You can change the direction of your life by changing your thoughts. You have the power to do it. Do it yourself.
You can do anything you want to do in your life. The question is, “Do you know what you want to do?” If you know what you want to do with your life, then you can take action to get it done. It is not enough to know what you want to do with your life. You must act on it.
You must take action to get it done. You must not allow people to stand in your way to success. You must not allow yourself to stand in your own way to success. Do something positive to make your dreams happen. No one will do it for you.
“You are the only problem you will ever have and you are the only solution.”-
It does not matter how you start. Do not give up until you succeed. Do not give up until you change your life. Og Mandino said, “I will persist until I make it.” So tell yourself, “I will stay there until I succeed. I will not go home until I succeed. I will fight until I succeed. I will not allow myself to stop me from succeeding. I will not let people stand in my way to success. I will do my path to succeed. I will never quit.”
We have what it takes to succeed. We are our own problems. There is no limits as to how far we can go in life. We can do anything. We can change our lives. We can think. We can love. We can be happy. Bob Proctor says, “You are the only problem you will ever have and you are the only solution.”
If you have a problem, do not look outside for solutions, look within yourself. The answers are already within you. You are the only person who can fix your own problem. You can.
