Last post, we discussed how creating dynamic tension is necessary for manifesting a prosperous life. And I told you that one of the best ways to generate that tension is having people in your life, who challenge you.
The path to prosperity and enlightenment is a series of journeys, from one comfort zone to the next. And often along the way, you get a little too comfortable, for a little too long, in one of those comfort zones.
And you need someone to challenge you...
Not someone to guilt you into doing more, or make judgments about what makes you happy. Not someone that compares you to others in a demeaning way, nor anyone who is pushing you because they are trying to live vicariously through you. You need people like those like you need another hole in your head.
What we’re talking about are people who want only the highest good for you. People who see the greatness in you, often before you see it yourself.
You want people who will remind you that you’re amazing – but also that you can be even more amazing. Because untapped potential is an insult to the force which created you.
Happiness doesn’t really come from achieving goals. It comes from the thrill, adventure, and challenge of pursuing them. That is when you will be most alive.
So make sure you have at least a couple people around you who will challenge you, to create that tension between where you are, and who you want to become.
I try to do that for you through this blog and my YouTube channel. But you also need someone close to you, who can give you that personalized perspective on what you’re capable of personally. And if you don’t have that, then consider working with me in my Breakthrough U coaching program. I promise I will challenge you in ways like you have never been challenged before. Because that’s where the breakthroughs live.
The other dynamic that is so important in this process, is knowing that your greatest moments are still ahead of you, not in the rear view mirror. I want to share some insights on how this plays out for me. Which is where we will pick up next time…
