If you’ve ever said (or thought), “I thought I’d be so much further along by now,” then I’ve got a TRUTH BOMB for you…and it will change everything!

Changing and growth are not synonymous. Growth is a choice.

The pain you’re feeling today isn’t from the pain of change or growth…it’s due to resisting it!

Change and growth have this in common:


And we can experience challenge by choice.

We change and grow by…

– Choice.
– Circumstance.
– Crisis.

Choice is so much easier.

Learning isn’t definitely growing.

We must choose to GROW.

There are 5 ways we grow.


1. Grow up.

2. We grow down.

3. We grow in.

4. We grow out.

5. And the most powerful and exponential way to grow is by EXPANSION

This is where we can grow up, down, in, and out all at once.

I choose expansion. How about YOU?

Please grab your SACRED S.O.L. D.A.T.E. JOURNAL (Daily Action To Engage yourself.)
