“What greater wealth is there than to own your life and to spend it on growing? Every living thing must grow. It can’t stand still. It must grow or perish”. Ayn Rand, Atlas Shrugged
Get uncomfortable and grow … Too many of us don’t want to put in the work necessary for change to occur. Whether it be fear, laziness or whatever excuse we can manifest, growing is deemed much too hard. It’s better to stay within a cocoon of comfort. After all, most people are doing precisely that.
Improving relationships, learning new ideas, expanding, enriching ourselves, living a life of fullness by taking on a huge new endeavor, all require us to move into various degrees of uncomfortableness. The reward is there for consistent action. That said, staying on the couch isn’t the answer. That is not a life … never has been, never will be.
