“If you put yourself in a position where you have to stretch outside your comfort zone, then you are forced to expand your consciousness.” – Les Brown
All successful people will tell you that they are willing to have some discomfort in the interest of growth. Many of us have settled into our comfort zones, unwilling or afraid to venture outside, where true growth awaits. We are meant to grow. We are meant to keep reaching for more and expanding our lives; striving to live toward our potential.
This week we are learning the 5 point test to make sure your dream is worthy of trading your life for. Most people ask the wrong question here and say “am I worthy of this dream?” You ARE! You are a son or daughter of God and all good things were meant for you. But your dream should elicit a strong YES answer to these five questions.
The third question is, “does my dream require me to grow?” Your dream will require you to learn and grow and stretch your potential; to make room for more joy and abundance. If you can live your dream with what you are already capable of, then it’s not a dream worthy of you.
It may be a worthy goal, or an item for your To Do list, but you were meant for growth and your dreams and aspirations are meant to help you grow and expand. If you already know everything you need to know to reach your dream, it’s not big enough. Go back to the dream board and make your vision bigger! Agree to step out of your comfort zone and into the green growing edge of your best self.
When you write and read and imagine being in your dream 3 years from now, it should make you feel overjoyed, eager, enthusiastic and expansive; be in line with your core values AND require you to grow.
You are creating your life! Choose your thoughts, your words and your actions and create a life you truly LOVE living! Have an AMAZING weekend!
