Your Stretch Zone

“When things do not go your way, remember that every challenge — every adversity — contains within it the seeds of opportunity and growth.” – Roy T. Bennett

We tend to stay in our comfort zone, either on purpose or out of fear. It scary to step into the unknown. I am not saying that you need to leap off of the cliff and into extremely dangerous waters.

This is where you enter your stretch zone. Where you are pushing yourself to do more and learning but not reaching your breaking point. Whether you are closer to your comfort zone or closer to your breaking point is up to you.

All that matters is that you are growing. 

It is best to be based in reality about your limitations but hopeful about your growth. As long as you stay in your stretch zone then you are all set. Keep up the fantastic work and have no fear, growth is growth no matter how small. As long as you are heading in that direction you are golden.
