There are times in one’s career or life when more is being asked of us than we ever thought we were capable of. My wife likes to call it “stretching”. These are times when we are being asked to reach further to grasp our potential…to be more than we have been before. To be better than we have been before.
We can respond to these times in one of two ways…
We can respond with fear. We can cling to our comfort zone. We can refuse to grasp the “better” that may lie in front of us…because of the risk involved or the change it requires.
Or…we can embrace it. We can venture into the unknown of what it is that we can make of ourselves or do for ourselves. Reach and grasp that potential reward that may lie out there if we just grasp it.
How do we need to be stretched?
