Monday Mottoes – #97

th2Maybe you have children who are going through a growth phase, or you remember your legs aching as a young person and your mom saying they were growing pains. Most growth—whether in terms of career, education, relationships, finances, sports ability—you name it, some stretching is involved.

And we don’t like it one bit, right?

The muscles ache, the brain hurts, the budget tightens. It can be painful.

Remember your first day of school, trying a new sport for the first time, going on a first date? It could have been somewhat nerve-wracking. Yet, that’s how we grow. Which brings us to today’s motto:

“The truth is that our finest moments are most likely to occur when we are feeling deeply thuncomfortable, unhappy, or unfulfilled. For it is only in such moments, propelled by our discomfort, that we are likely to step out of our ruts and start searching for different ways or truer answers.” ~M. Scott Peck

So you have to ask yourself: how uncomfortable are you? And then start to rejoice because change is within your grasp-! You can do this. When there is no Plan B and Plan A clearly is not working, you tend to become quite creative.

can-doNever mind if it’s never been done before, never mind if you’re an expert or not, you weigh your options as best you can… and you go for it.

Today, think of something that you’ve never done before that just might turn around situations, circumstance, or people. And then get up the nerve to do it.

Happy Monday, everyone!
