I sincerely believe that it is far more beneficial and far less costly to help a child build confidence than it is to fix an adult who has little or none.

Stretch yourself

on November 19, 2013

family stretchingIf you want to achieve something worthwhile in life, it is necessary to learn and take action.  This might be difficult and you might  have to do something that takes you out of your comfort zone.  It might require that you stretch your abilities and ‘reach for the stars’.

Try doing something every day that makes you stretch and move forward.  Think about some things that you may find a little difficult or that you have been pushing aside, then give it a try.  Be positive about the results and you might surprise yourself.  Here are some suggestions:

  • Express love to someone
  • Take a new risk
  • Try for a new achievement
  • Face a fear that holds you back
  • Share a secret with someone you trust
  • Make an apology
  • Set a new goal
  • Write a story, poem or song
  • Start a conversation with someone you don’t know
  • Start a project

Write your own list and start stretching yourself!  Most of us can do a lot more than we think we can.  Don’t let failure stop you.  If you aren’t successful, just learn from your mistakes and keep trying!
