I read a quote today: “You will never know your limits unless you push yourself to them.” That really resonated with me. As human beings, it’s our default to try to find homeostasis – a balance between things which puts us in a comfortable place.
No matter where you are in your journey on this little mud ball we call Earth, unless you push yourself, then your tendency is toward homeostasis. When people do great things, it is almost always because they push themselves out of balance – they talk to the girl they end up marrying when she’s a stranger, they lift the heavier weight, they push themselves for the job they don’t yet have.
What are you doing to push yourself today? What about tomorrow? what about everyday? Lift the heavier weight, run that extra mile, do the great thing.
