Grow Where You Must Go

The challenge of change is only embraced when we believe the control is in our hands. We like the change to be smooth and graceful, but we know that’s not reality. Growth is the same. Sometimes it can be painful (i.e. – stress, hurt, expensive) but it can also be enjoyable (i.e. – accomplishments, new relationships, possessions). And then there are times when you’re in the middle of pain and pleasure because you have to grow where no one else has been or can take you.

Think of a plane leaving the tarmac. As they’re leaving the runway, the jet plane accelerates and in no time the pilot has lifted the aircraft into the pretty blue skies without any hiccups. That is our perfect example of “growing where we must go” expectations. Smooth and beautiful. Well, we know that’s not how it goes.

Imagine a rocket ship blasting off to space. Everything is being decimated around it because the rocket needs to break gravity’s forced to leave earth’s pull. Growing to your next level of success is no different. You must blast off. Stop thinking you have to please everyone and use your kid gloves handling everything with care. STOP. Grow where you must. Go where you need to go. Don’t try and do it. Take the step towards your goals, dreams, and vision of what you want to do, be and live.

Grow where you must go and make new friends. Grow to new levels of success. Grow to a deeper understanding of yourself. Grow your vision beyond what you see as imaginable. This is called having a life with no regrets. Dream Big and Godspeed!

I write this because my business is personal because this service is for the advancement of all humanity. My failures and successes are for your gain. No strings attached.
