Friday’s Quote

“Growth only occurs in a state of discomfort.” Bill Eckstrom

For the past month or so I have been working with four young adults to prepare them for public speaking. Last night, at two locations, all four speeches were delivered! Oh my goodness!! They were awesome! I was like a proud momma watching them – holding my breath as if doing so would prevent any mistakes!

I remember meeting them all for the first time and how uncomfortable they were. I remember all the obstacles we had to overcome. Delivering a public speech is NOT easy but if you put in the work – it can happen.

These four people can never go back to their “old selves.” Those people who never gave a speech don’t exist anymore! The did it!! They faced one of the biggest fears known to man and came out on the other side a HUGE success!! The same can be true for you. What are you afraid of doing? It’s just fear. If you put in the work, it can happen for you too! Discomfort and growth go hand in hand.

Happy Friday!
Beth
P.S. Breana, Isaiah, Sabrina, and Winifred – You’re powerful beyond measure!!! I’m so proud of you!
