Stretching out beyond our current position to reach desired objectives is a key part of developing ourselves. Rarely are we able to achieve more than we have already done by remaining entrenched in the mindset and actions of yesterday.
We need new stimulations, and with them ever greater challenges, to go about stretching out from the perceived comfort of the ‘old life’ to get to the ‘new life’ represented by our dreams and goals.
Reflecting on how we have developed to date, we might be surprised to discover how far we have already grown over the course of past endeavours. Stretching out from our beginnings to today is a set of experiences successfully managed, with the results bringing us to where we are now.
And having gotten this far it would be a pity to interrupt our journey. Right now we know what more we want to accomplish. With the day stretching out before us there is perhaps nothing else needing to be said, except, as ever, please feel free to leave a comment below if you’d like to join the conversation here.
