Evolve & Grow

Struggle. Practice. Grow.

Sometimes when I’m learning something new I struggle. It feels weird. Not my normal. Unnatural. Sometimes I want to quit because it feels uncomfortable.

I was talking with someone about this and they said something really simple.

Practice more.

Hmm. But if I’m practicing more doesn’t that mean I’m simply setting up time to struggle more on purpose?

Well, yes. Sort of. But I’m also setting an intention to improve. And if I keep practicing/struggling there will eventually be growth.

What used to be hard becomes easier. What used to feel weird becomes more natural.

I grow. I create.

If I were my own best friend I would tell myself to practice. Set aside time to struggle at something, to learn something new. Only through repeated practice, effort, and struggle can I move forward, grow, evolve. Only through struggle can I eventually look back on something and say “hey, look at this thing I did. This thing I made. It wasn’t easy, but I did it.”

So, what are you struggling with right now? What could it become?
