Stretch Yourself

How do you see yourself? What do you see yourself doing in the next five years? What were you doing five years ago? What are you doing now? These are great questions to ask yourself to evaluate if you have grown. This year would be a great time to stretch yourself. What I mean by that is to think about doing something that is bigger than your normal. Choose the area in which you would like to stretch yourself. If you want to work on intellectual aspects for example, you can commit to learning new vocabulary words every week. Taking an online course is another option. Maybe you would like to work on your relationship skills with a loved one or family. Being nice to a “hater” is an example of stretching yourself. Sometimes it may be difficult to be nice to someone who hates you. May you would like to start a business and become an entrepreneur. That is a stretch for someone who has been working for others for decades. Choose the area that is the most challenging in your life and stretch yourself to grow in that area. Life is all about growing. Grow and go. Stretch yourself!
