Stretch yourself. You cannot grow yourself without stretching yourself. When you stretch yourself, when you put yourself through an uncomfortable situation, when you do what others are not doing, when you push yourself beyond your normal range, you will grow, you will succeed.
People don’t grow because they don’t want to be uncomfortable. They don’t want to stretch themselves. They want to be safe and comfortable. Remember, no one can grow without leaving where they are, no one can grow without changing how they think, no one can grow without doing the unusual things, no one can grow without taking risks, and no one can grow without stretching his or herself.
“No one can grow without changing how they think.”
If you want to grow, make yourself a lifelong learner. Be a curious person. Be willing to go the extra mile, and don’t be afraid to walk it alone. Stretching is not comfortable, but the fruit is comfortable.
“You will either step forward into growth, or you will step backward into safety.”
If you are not growing, you are dying. If you are not growing, you are shrinking. If you are not growing, you are reducing. If you are not growing, you are declining. If you want real growth in your life, stretch yourself. Do what people say that you cannot do. Push yourself beyond your safety zone. If you do that, growth is within your reach.
Who do you really want in your life? Who are you spending your time with? We love our friends.But the real question is: “Are we growing or dying?”
We cannot grow if we don’t have the right people in our lives. We can’t do it all. We need people to help us succeed. We need the right people in our lives to help us grow. But we can’t find the right people if we keep hanging out with the wrong people. We have to make room for the right people to come into our lives. And we also have to make room for the wrong people to live us alone. Yes, alone.
Sometimes we find it difficult to tell people what we want. But, look, if you don’t have the courage to tell people what you want, they will give you what you don’t want. In other words, they will give you the wrong things. When you ask, will you get. If you don’t ask, you won’t get anything. It is better to ask for what you want and need than to keep quiet.
If you want to grow in your life, you need the right people to help you grow and succeed in your life. You don’t need people who will come into your life and waste your precious time. Do not let that happen to you. You need to surround yourself with people who are ready and willing to invest in you. Surround yourself with people who are praying for you to grow, who are ready to tell you what you need to hear, not what you want to hear. Surround yourself with people who are saying positive things about you and your dreams.
Your personal growth is in your hands. But you can’t grow if you don’t have the courage to remove the things that are holding you back. You can’t move forward if you keep moving with the wrong people. You must let them go. Learn how to let go. You don’t need them in your life. You need to grow.
If you are not growing in your life, it is time to check who your friends are. It is time to check how you are spending your time. If you are wasting your time with the wrong people, it is time to leave them alone. It is time to focus on your dreams. Because you can’t get to your destination without the right people in your life. You need them. They are out there. They are those who will not judge or criticize your dreams. Instead they will do everything to help you succeed in your life. They will motivate you. They will inspire you. They will give you the time you need to think and grow. They are open to answering your questions. They will Never discourage you. They will be with you all the way to the end.
You must know who you really want in your life. If you don’t know, you can’t attract them.
