It’s been said that life begins on the other side of your comfort zone. Our brains are actually designed to keep us safe, to keep us in a state of comfort. We always have a tendency to stay within that comfort zone when we are faced with adversity (growth potential).

When we truly desire to grow in life, we must step outside of that comfort zone. We must desire opportunities that make us uncomfortable. Those opportunities will push us to become a new person, the person we have to become in order to accomplish the goals that have set. So don’t lower the bar. Don’t lower your expectations for yourself. Believe that you will do more than you currently can do, then get to work becoming that person that can do that which you currently desire to do. Persevere, be consistent, believe BIG, and never stop setting the bar higher! Don’t lower the bar!
Start today to live YOUR life of purpose…because Your Legacy Begins Now!
Not all young adults that end up on the wrong track or fall short in life, come from rough beginnings. Not all of them come from struggle. Some of the kids that end up in some of the worst circumstances actually come from privilege. Some of them grew up in a sheltered childhood, got everything easy, and never really had to struggle or work hard for anything. Some of them are accustomed to having everything at their fingertips and not having to go the extra mile for it.
That type of childhood develops an individual that lives with a sense of entitlement. He feels that everything should come easy, he doesn’t think he should really have to work hard to get what he wants out of life. He therefore doesn’t prepare for life’s challenges the way he really should.
Life doesn’t care! Life could care less about your upbringing! What are you bringing to the table now!? Unless you strap up your boots and tighten your belt life will BREAK YOU!
It’s up to you where you end up in life, so don’t let your past victories defeat you!

People go day in and day out saying what they want their life to be or what they want to have in life. They say these things yet continue to receive the same results as before.
In order to grow, you MUST put yourself in a perpetual state of discomfort.
Think on that for a minute, then go get to work!
