You are Not a Tree

‘If you don’t like where you are, move. You are not a tree.’  Jim Rohn

Today’s quote always make me smile, but  reaching a stuck place in our lives is usually anything but funny. When we are facing uncharted territory a stuck place can feel very comfortable and this is something to be mindful of.

Growth and change are  rarely easy; the point is not to be comfortable, the point is to stretch ourselves into a place we have never been. Leaning into what is unfamiliar is scary, but often the only other option is to sink back into where we have always been and the long-term potential of making that move is dismal.

So next time you are standing at a precipice in your life overlooking all that is new on the horizon-when the urge to be a tree hits, soften yourself and remember – you are not a tree, and you did not come here to be comfortable… you came here to grow.
