When we talk about effort we often look at it as physical,
but the key is the type of mental effort we make.
It's not just a matter of "pushing yourself harder".
In fact working hard just gets you to the start line.
If you want to grow, its your mental effort to change old behaviours
or conquering your fear that needs to be exercised the most.
It is easy to fall back on what you know
because what you know keeps you safe.
Your mind doesn’t grow,
your body doesn’t grow.
When we don’t grow we become stale.
We feel lost or not good enough.
If you're not growing, you're dying it's a principle of nature.
One of the hardest things to do is leap into unknown
and push past the limitations we create for ourselves.
When we feel pressure we often want to quit.
Every time we do quit, we just train ourselves to run away the next time there is pressure.
Unfortunately that's the exact sensation we should be running towards,
that's where the growth is. All the growth, all the development is in the stuff we find uncomfortable and unfamiliar.
When you feel pressure,
when the tension builds,
step into it!
Do not drop your standard.
Increase your effort.
If you are not willing to step into the unknown
then you are not willing to grow.
Ben Test Is it time for you to step into the tension?
Are you ready for change?
Are you ready for growth?
Love and light
