Expanding Yourself




‘Life is like a sandwich! Birth as one slice, and death as the other. What you put in-between the slices is up to you. Is your sandwich tasty or sour?”
Allan Rufus

We are creatures of habit, It is all too easy for us to fall into a daily, weekly routine, Yet this leads to stagnation and we stop growing. You can put the breaks on this down hill decline by stretching yourself.

Because when you start stretching yourself just beyond the edge of comfort, when you are struggling to make progress, this is when you need commitment to yourself. It is far more beneficial to spend a productive, quality few hours stretching yourself, than it is to spend a mediocre day comfortably in place.

Your aim is to be stretched to the edge of your ability at least once a day – it needs to be difficult and uncomfortable for a little while. But most of us do not want to be uncomfortable, so we shy away from the possibility of discomfort constantly.

The obvious problem with this is that, by running from discomfort, we are constrained to partake in only the activities and opportunities within our comfort zones.

And since our comfort zones are relativity small, we miss out on most of life’s greatest and rewarding experiences, and we get stuck in a debilitating cycle with our goals. It is all too east to keep doing what we have always done, and thus we keep getting the results we have always got.

Our true potential falls by the wayside. Choose differently! Commit to do things differently, expand your mind. Spend time with people who inspire you to stretch yourself. Read books. Grow. Get better. Your life is your choice.

Choose to make your life more rewarding, more interesting and more satisfying. It all begins with you.

Whenever you feel uncomfortable, instead of retreating back into your old comfort zone, pat yourself on the back and say, “I must be growing,” and continue moving forward.”
