Key to Growth is Your Reaching

"It's the obstacles that stand between what I want and where I am at now that always point the way to my achievement." -Tad Inoue

Pursuing the things we desire in this life means we must step out of our zone of comfort and step into a place where we are forced to face those things about ourselves that doesn’t feel that good. If we are able to visit those places that challenge us and force ourselves to find ways to raise our own bar then we can grow beyond where we are currently. Any kind of growth in our lives takes place because we force ourselves to reach for more than we have previously. We must stretch our limits in order to move beyond our current boundaries. 

The secret to achievement is not to focus on the goal at hand, but instead to focus on loving the labor of everything involved. When we do this we realize that all of the good stuff is really is in the journey. The joy of arriving at a destination is wonderful but the emotional rewards are always just a pin point in time. Where as the journey to get anywhere will always consume 99% of our time and energy, and so it is logical to invest more attention and focus into this part of the life experience. When we focus on positively engaging with our lives with the intent to learn, grow and transform something magical happens. 

The magic of transformation happens when you marry awareness, intention and strong positive emotion together. These are the magical ingredients that when stirred repetitiously over and over again we transform ourselves into greater and greater things. No matter what you want to become, it is through this higher realization of ourselves that we contribute so greatly to the wonderful nature of this universe. We are all such important parts to this glorious puzzle of life. We are all needed. We are all worthy. We are all wonderful. I am love. I am joy. I am so very good.
