Welcome to Monday! Seems like a great day to be dominate! Let’s continue on with the common misconceptions of growth.
- The Mistake Gap – I am afraid of making mistakes. Growing can be a messy business. It means admitting you don’t have the answers. It requires making mistakes. It can make you look foolish. Most people don’t enjoy that. but that is the price of admission if you want to improve. One of the greatest quotes I have ever come across was by Robert Schuller, he said,
What would you attempt to do if you knew you [wouldn't] fail?
If you want to grow, you need to get over any fear you may have of making mistakes. One of the mentalities I have is when you are making mistakes, it means you are moving in the right direction. That’s a great thing. Keep moving!
- Perfection Gap – I have to find the best way before I start. There is not a perfect way to get started. The key is to just get started. As I was saying yesterday, I have settled into a morning of growth and self-development, which fits me perfectly. However, it hasn’t always been that way.
Finding your path to growth is like driving a car at night. You want to be able to see your whole route, but you can’t. You just progressively see where you need to go until you eventually get there. As you move forward on your path to growth, a little more each time will be revealed to you.
If you want to be able to see more of the way, then get moving!
- The Inspiration Gap – I don’t feel like doing it. There is going to be several reasons that you try and create in your mind to not begin and/or continue on your path to growth. You might say that you don’t have enough time, money, or experience to do this. Once again, JUST GET STARTED! That is the key. You will start to see the motivation and the desire to do it growing every single day. Each time I follow through with my morning and nightly studies, my path to where I want to go becomes clearer, my passion gets stronger, my desire to be who God put me on this earth to be, increases and so does my happiness and success.
Don’t be afraid of which direction to take. Simply be afraid of not moving. Life is good when you are on the move!
