Training Camp - Trait #3
The Best are always striving to get better."
"You are either getting better or worse but never staying the same. If you are not getting better, then it means you are getting worse. that's why the best are always pushing themselves out their comfort zone as they strive to get better." p. 43
It's so easy to become complacent, to think that this is "good enough". In order to improve, we have to step out and try something new or different.
What have you done lately that has pushed you out of your comfort zone? Comment with your response below, or just send me an email and let's celebrate what you have done to stretch! All responders will receive a special treat to celebrate! ;)
Love All Of It - Jon Gordon
Love the struggle because it makes you appreciate your accomplishments.
Love challenges because they make you stronger.
Love competition because it makes you better
Love negative people because they make you more positive.
Love those who have hurt you because they teach you forgiveness.
Love fear because it makes you courageous.
The secret to life and the greatest success strategy of all is to love all of it and fear none of it.
