We all have our struggles. Sometimes from the simplest tasks to the most difficult, we have our struggles. We may see those struggles as interfering with the outcome, with the goal. Or we may see those struggles as necessary to the growth process.  

After a seed is planted it has to do what generations before that seed did – destroy its comfort zone – the pod, the outer shell, to then grow. With all of its might, force, and focus, the seed grows too big for the pod and cracks it open so it can then grow and reach its full potential.  

It has to destroy the very thing that it had grown from, that gave it protection, so that it could then manifest itself to become what it had been destined to be. Amazing.  

How many times have you allowed yourself to stay in your own shell thinking that was the safe place to be, and never reaching your full potential?
