Dynamic movement creates a dynamic life. The more dynamic the movement the more dynamic the life. You have the power to elevate your energy by simply moving vigorously.

The dictionary defines life as growth. Growth is essential for life. 

A dynamic life demands dynamic growth. Dynamic growth creates a dynamic life. Try walking, dancing, skipping, etc., with dynamism and energy. You are just one minute away from more.

Transform your energy and you will transform your day.

“Movement is a creativity catalyst.”

Comfort in Balance

Growth can be uncomfortable and disconcerting because by nature, it moves you out of your comfort zone. You need periods of comfort. Comfort is the night’s rest that restores for the next day. Comfort is the rest stop on the long journey.

But comfort in balance. To stay in bed too long… or to linger at a rest stop delays progress, which makes you restless and ill at ease with yourself.

“True nobility is being superior to your former self.”
~Ernest Hemingway, journalist, novelist, short stories, 1899-1961

Discoveries Just Outside of the Comfort Zone

About 12 years ago, around the age of 48, I started working out with a personal trainer. I had been exercising on my own and made a lot of progress, but there were still issues to resolve. Namely, osteopenia—the loss of bone density—and chronic back pain.

Doctors told me that the way to resolve both was to make my body stronger through resistance training with weights. To take it to the next level meant getting help because I didn’t know about gyms, barbells and fitness machines.

I found the gym intimidating, so I hired a personal trainer.

More Capable than You Know

My personal trainer had me do things I wasn’t even sure I could do. She handed me huge dumbbells that had me laughing at first because I thought she was joking. She wasn’t.

She expected me to lift them, over and again. She had me jump up on a bench and back down numerous times. She expected me to hop up a flight of 30 stairs, two steps at a time, come back down and do it again on one foot all the way up, then back down for the other side.

She knew that I could do them. She was practiced at pushing limits; her own and that of her clients, and she knew that the greatest growth lay just on the other side of my comfort zone… and then some. I thought perhaps she didn’t know my age, so I reminded her.

“Remember… I’m 48.”

Her blank stare clearly stated, “And your point is…?”

But she was right. I could do it. Not only could I do it, but each day I grew stronger, fitter and more confident. For a time I had bought into the myth of being less capable because… you know… “getting older.

Creating Success

Successful people are simply those with successful habits.
~Brian Tracy, self development author & speaker, born-1/5/1944

We are like our computers: a vast store of potential, much of which goes largely untapped, day after day as we settle into our usual routines.

Routine reduces and constricts our parameters of possibility. Challenges expand and flex them.

So all good things in good time. Rest when you need it. Start small when you need to. But remember to challenge what you thought you could do. Challenge, by definition is not supposed to be easy.

Set goals. Create daily. Chances are, you will surprise yourself.

Delight yourself. Do more than you thought you could. Do one more page… one more sentence… brushstroke… one more painting… one more video… one more than you thought you could do.

Don’t make excellence a chore… make it a joy… an adventure… a game and a privilege. For ultimately, if you have the freedom to create, that is privilege indeed.

You won’t regret it. Ever.

Work until your idols become your equals.
~Cindy Eckert, American serial entrepreneur

Create the life you want to live, one day at a time.
