No Pain.... No Gain...
Some wise person once said;
In the presence of trouble, some people grow wings; others buy crutches
We have all heard the saying - No pain... No gain...
Body builders tell us that in order to grow those
big muscles they have
they have to push themselves beyond the pain...
And just so in life it is only when we push ourselves
beyond our comfort zone that we grow
We need to challenge ourselves
we need to move beyond our comfort zones
we need to grow wings and transcend our limitations
we can buy crutches and limp along in life
When we test ourselves
and venture into unknown territory
we begin to develop ourselves
we develop our true character
and become the person we were born to be
