It’s all about what happens when things stop coming easily. Maybe it’s the wall we hit at work, when we go from cruising and feeling like we’re in our element to having to do something that, for the first time, feels brutally hard and takes more than we’ve ever had to invest. Could be a relationship, where we reach a moment or conversation in which, for the first time, we don’t have all the answers and are forced to figure it out. Maybe it’s the craft or pursuit of art or performance. We hit a point where things start to feel a lot harder. We keep trying to find a way through, and when it doesn’t come easily, instead of leaning into it, we stop trying, we stop taking risks and start to blame everyone and everything but ourselves. ⠀
How we deal with those moments, when things stop coming easily and we need to work like we’ve never had to work before to make it through, is a big factor in our ability to get what we want out of life. Those moments will always come; there is no part of life that is immune. ⠀
Stanford professor and author of Mindset: The New Psychology of Success, Carol Dweck, has spent decades researching exactly what happens at these points of resistance. The answer is critically important, because moments of adversity, when things get hard and you need to be able to push through, rather than run, exist in nearly every part of life. If you run and hide every time you bump up against one, you end up closing the doors to what are often the most beautiful, though challenging, parts of life. Somehow, we need to be able to find a way to move through these points of resistance and make it to the next level of success, in pretty much all areas of life. But how?⠀
That lens, which Dweck calls the “growth mindset,” combined with the effort it fuels, leads to growth rather than defeat in the face of adversity. It leads to sustained evolution and a willingness to lean into, rather than run from, all the many challenges that’ll come your way. It lets you experience moments of challenge as gateways to possibility. ⠀

Yet there is a little caveat that I want to add to this, as you receive it I want you to position yourself to not only receive but function and operate with it.
What I mean by that is, if you have not done the things that you know God has nudged you to do like start your business, work with a coach, get some inner healing, do therapy, start serving in the place He has planted you; much of what you are to receive will be hindered because YOU have not increased in your capacity to receive🤯🤯🤯.
Get the courses, book the session, download the e-books and read them…
🗣🗣🗣Do what you need to do to increase the capacity within you so God can give you EVERYTHING that He has waiting for you! #hitlinkinbio or go to bit.ly/increasemycapacity ...
”The greatest fear in the world is of the opinions of others. And the moment you are unafraid of the crowd you are no longer a sheep, you become a lion. A great roar arises in your heart, the roar of freedom.” Osho
🔹Do you still care others opinion?🔹
What motivates me? Grass. Grass is so fascinating, extraordinary, beautiful, amazing...everything special. Grass is as beautiful as great houses, cars, diamonds, jewelry, Disney World, The Eiffel Tower, concerts, and so on....(idk about the beach. I love water, so grass and water is running a race,)
Look at the growth of grass. It is so amazing. I can watch it all day. How is one side of grass small, and the other side all tall? 💫💫
There’s a lot of patches with small and tall grass. I will sit and wonder all day how did grass get this way. 💫💫
Grass have been here for centuries. Why do grass not grow as tall as trees? I mean I understand trees have different characteristics and substances to allow it to grow differently....but why haven’t grass decided to evolve similar to trees? And I understand evolution and the cycle of life... but I still do not understand why living cells are choosing to remain the same. 💫💫
Even rocks have evolved....and water.🌍 ...
