Change and growth are never easy. My experiences in tandem biking and learning to ride solo have taught me some interesting things about myself. I may not be biking on a trail, but I’m riding through life gaining speed and confidence in my own abilities. When it comes to change – if it’s not my idea – it’s easy for me to be reluctant. I’m really good and digging in my heels and pushing back. It’s a natural response because it’s more comfortable to avoid change.
Not many of us seek opportunities to be uncomfortable. But maybe we should. I believe it is part of our self-preservation – put the blinders on to avoid taking a deep look at what might actually be holding us back.
Have you ever considered how your reluctance might be a barrier to your growth?
Last week I wrote about my heart condition, this week on Evolve! I go into a little more depth about my reluctance to grow.
