My son is lamenting the increase in his school work.

While we have told him over and over again that as he gets older increased freedom comes with increased responsibility, he still doesn’t like the process of growth.

Not many of us do.

I talk to a lot of people who talk about the changes that they want to see in their life but lament the process of growth necessary to experiences the very changes they say they want.

Sometimes I find myself listening to others as they express all of the reasons why their life isn’t working out the way they want and I have to stop myself from shaking my head.

Because I’m standing their thinking, “You don’t really want to grow. You don’t really want to change.”

Today’s podcast is what I’ve thought about saying many times, said a few times, and probably should say more often.



It’s my desire to reach my full potential and to encourage you in reaching yours.

But in order for that to happen for either one of us, we have to choose to grow and to participate in the process of our own development.

I hope today’s podcast encourages you to do just that.
