Big Boys, I believe we got in a total of 11 before time was up.


Recently I was skimming a business book that uses the way a lobster grows as an illustration for expanding business. Not really a page turner, however, I think there is something there that can also apply to us personally and how we look at discomfort and stress. So how do lobsters grow? A lobster is a soft mushy animal that lives inside a rigid shell. That rigid shell does not expand. So how does the lobster grow? Well, as the lobster grows that shell becomes very confining and the lobster feels itself under pressure and very uncomfortable. So, it goes under a rock formation to protect itself from predatory fish and casts off its shell. And grows a new larger one. It does this type of molting multiple times over its life.
The stimulus for the lobster to be able to grow is that it feels uncomfortable.
Likewise, we need to realize at times of stress and discomfort maybe signals for growth. And if we use times of adversity properly we can grow through those adversity. Where are your pressure point currently? Where areas of life are causing using the most consistent stress or anxiety?  Perhaps these are opportunities for moving out of your current limitations and pursuing new growth.
