BlessUP No Stopping Point Tuesday, business soul friends!
“If it doesn’t challenge you, it doesn’t change you“. – Fred DeVito
Challenges offer the most excellent path to growth. By challenging ourselves to step out of our comfort zone and embrace difficulty, we are allowing ourselves to grow and be better individuals. Growth is a process of change. Hardships are opportunities to get better at what we do.
Part of our nature as humans is to seek comfort and to choose the path of least resistance. Our instinct is to protect ourselves from anything that could hurt us. So we tend to avoid situations that could make us feel uncomfortable and insecure. But at some point, we have to step out of our comfort zone, face our fears, and overcome the inevitable.
By stretching and pushing ourselves harder, we discover new strengths that we never knew we had. We become stronger and more prepared to overcome bigger obstacles in life. Just like how pressure makes diamonds. Challenges can drive us to shine like a diamond forged by fire.
So don’t get too comfortable in your seat. Do something difficult. Reflect on your weakest points. Identify tasks that you’re not good at. Embrace our Kaizen culture by constantly looking for ways to improve your craft and be more effective at your chosen seat. Or go above and beyond by taking on new responsibilities and exploring new roles that are out of your comfort zone.
Until I SEE YOU again,
Grow through challenges.
Stretch yourself past your comfort zone.
