"A difficult situation is a growth opporunity.If you want true resilience, you need to put yourself in difficult situations every single day."- Joe De Sena, 10 Rules for Resilience, 2021
If you want to grow, you need to put yourself out there.
Now is not the time to hide yourself behind anything.
Now is the time to shine, to work, to get your hands dirty,
Now is the time to face your fears.
If you have been running away from facing your fears,
from doing what you are supposed to be doing,
now is the time to face them.
If you want to grow, you must face your fears.
You must put yourself in difficult situations every day.
If not, you are not going to grow.
Do not be scared to start. Take one step at a time.
In the worlds of John Maxwell, "Small actions
made consistently, lead to big changes."
If you love growth, that is what you should do.
Life is a mountain.
To get to the other side, you must climb it.
To get to the top, you must climb it.
Life is a game. To win, you must show up.
To get what you want for yourself, you must do the work.
You must get your hands dirty.
You must stop waiting for someone,
somewhere, to give you the green light.
You must stop waiting for the perfect time to take action.
There is no perfect time to take action.
The best time to take action, to take initiative,
is right now, is today. If not now, when?
You cannot grow if you do not do the work.
You cannot get ahead in your life if you do not take action.
A beautiful plan won't do it. Only action can change things.
When you take action, things will change.
Do not let fear prevent you from taking the right action.
Fear is real, but do not let it stop you from living,
from loving, from growing.
You can win if you do the work.
You can grow if you take action every day,
if you do something new every day.
If you want to grow, consistency is key.
Action is key. And initiative is key.
