The Fear of Stretch

One of the things I’ve noticed about people in general is the fear of “stretch.”

The majority of people would rather sit on the sidelines, complain, moan and groan rather than to “stretch” themselves. “Stretching” means taking risks. Taking risk can be scary.

That’s one of the reasons why there are more poor people than rich people. By and large rich people take risks. It’s far easier to “not do” than “to do.”

Stretching means throwing yourself into the arena and being subject to criticism and yes, failure..

Only when you fail will you figure out how to succeed. The fear of failure is what holds people back from success. Continuing to sit on the sidelines is comfortable.

Stretching your mind, body and soul ain’t. Let the stretching begin.

That’s all I’m gonna say, Tommy Gibbs.
