In order to grow, you need to take risks and do things out of your comfort zone. When you try something new, the probability of making mistakes is a little higher. But, if you aren’t making them, you might not be stretching yourself enough. Having a mean inner task master can really keep you stuck. If you don’t feel like you’re growing as much as you’d like, take some time to listen to your self-talk. If you wouldn’t talk to anyone else that way, commit to being more loving to yourself.

Your growth depends on it.
