Do You Want to be a Caterpillar or a Butterfly?

I read something today that made me say, “Wow…”

The Tartar tribes of central Asia used a particular curse against their enemies. They didn’t call for the people to suffer terrible illness or death. Instead, they said, “May you stay in one place forever.”

The worst thing they could wish for their enemy was for them not to grow, but to remain stuck where they were.

Do you know people who seem to remain the same, doing the same things day after day?

They may have dreams, but their dreams are going nowhere.

They may have talent, but they’re surviving on what talent they were born with and aren’t making any effort to grow and go further with that talent.

Their lives could be described as stagnate.

And they’re bored.

Personal growth – spiritually, intellectually, emotionally – takes work. It isn’t easy and it doesn’t happen overnight.

“Let the wise listen and add to their learning.” Proverbs 1:5 (NIV)

A caterpillar has to change in order to become a butterfly.
I don’t want to crawl. I want to fly!

There are so many wonderful things to learn and experience. Take a risk, step out of your comfort zone, and see where it will take you.
