You Need A Challenge And Here’s Why

You Need A Challenge And Here’s Why

okpit3.001Raise your mental hand if you have ever said ‘yes’ to something that sounded fun, realized that you were in over your head but then completely enjoyed the experience?

If you’re an ‘I’ on the DiSC personality assessment, most likely you’ll be the first to show your armpits.  We ‘i’s’ love anything that sounds fun, no matter how hard it may be.  Jump out of an airplane? I’m in.  Free-dive to an ocean depth of 150 feet? Show me my snorkel.  Play the banjo in a pit orchestra supporting a stellar high school cast performing Roger and Hammerstein’s musical, ‘Oklahoma’, when you have strummed the hummer in many moons?  I pick that! 

Yes, that has been my extra-work world for the past few weeks.  I was hoodwinked by my dear friend Jyl who needed my dusty talent to round out the sound and as an ‘i’, I took it.  I had no idea what I was doing and hadn’t played really since a kid in Shakey’s pizza parlor, but I lassoed the hard opportunity because I knew it would push me.

That’s what hard opportunities do.  They push you — push you to grow, push you to discover, push you to be better.  Too many of us live in a comfort zone that God intended only for recovery, not for dwelling.  He designed your skills and capabilities not to be used to create a nest in which you hunker down and live ‘comfortably’.  Your unique wiring can light up the world and flood you with that illusive sense of purpose, meaning and contentment.  

When was the last time you did something that you knew was within you abilities but outside your comfort zone?  When was the last time you served in a role that matched your passion and challenged your fear?  When was the last time you said ‘yes’ to a hard opportunity because you had no idea what you were doing? 

Performance weekend is this weekend.  Our whole crew has jitters but we don’t care.  We are loving what we’re doing because we are all challenge and we are doing it together.    

Peace!
