In my experience, since walking with Christ, the only time I’ve really ever felt “growth” is when I’m uncomfortable. And a feeling of awkwardness or feeling weird, and finding yourself alone.
If everything is too good, you’re probably stuck not being awesome. Don’t join an “easy” crowd. You won’t grow.
Breaking a habit, trying something new, taking a risk, making new connections, or putting yourself in a totally new situation won’t be easy, but it’s worth it. It’s exhausting but rewarding.
Calvin Coolidge says “All growth depends upon activity. There is no development physically or intellectually without effort, and effort means work.”
Comfort can lead to self-absorption, boredom, and discontent. You can either be comfortable and stagnate or stretch yourself; become uncomfortable and grow.
Choose the latter.
Stretch yourself. Break the mold. It will make you more stronger and confident. Hang around people that will make you want to do and be better.
Change is always good when it’s positive. We all have room to be and do better.
