But I’ve been thinking a lot about taking chances, about setting goals, about putting myself into uncomfortable situations — all so I can grow. I’m not going to expand my mind and my skill set without trying something new. I’m not going to be able to run farther if I don’t get up at the crack of dawn to head out for a few miles. I’m not going to get to know myself better, or become healthier, or have more self-confidence if I don’t do some things that are hard.
And I agree with David, that something that may seem hard is actually going to make our lives easier in the long run. I mean, I’d much rather be terrified to do a few presentations, so that I will eventually stop being scared at all; I’d prefer lifting some heavy weights a couple times of weeks than becoming stiff and immobile as I age.
Anyway, head on over to Raptitude and let me know what you think! Happy Monday 🙂
