“The impediment to action advances action. What stands in the way becomes the way.”
STAYING PRESENT AND USING TENSION TO FOCUS
Growth comes at the point of resistance. Evolution and growth occur from taking life to the point of discomfort and resistance. And, the feeling of accomplishment that one gains from growing past this struggle is one of the greatest rewards we have as a human. It is the season of summer where the fruits of our labour are born.
What stops us from embracing stress?
We are scared of the loss.
After opening ourselves up to infinite possibilities, It can feel uncomfortable to give up the thrill of vast potential in order to focus on giving life to one creative child.
Or we also face the loss of pride – for fear of being judged harshly for our completed works we are too quick to discard them before they have become ripened into fruits.
