We Don't Grow When Things Are Easy

This one is for the 29 members in my August Accountability Challenge Group.

You guys. We aren't even done with week one of the August Accountability Challenge Group yet and, I already can't wait to tell you how proud I am of all of the people in this group. In this first week we have had people admit some "failures", pick each other up, shout out their success, cheer each other on, share helpful tips and so much more! My heart is so humbled by every single one of these group members.

While every single person in my group inspires me to do better every day, I want to talk about a few select today. I want to talk about the ones who don't give up after falling down.

How easy would it be to just stay silent and not admit when you fall? I've been there, I know it's a lot easier to just stay quiet when you get tripped up, without letting anyone know that you stumbled down. But guess what, the easy stuff doesn't change you.

Admitting a trip up isn't easy but, it will make you grow. To people of my group who haven't nailed every single challenge -- thank you for this reminder. Thank you for showing me your courage to continue on despite not being perfect because, as well all should know, it's not about perfection; it's about progress.

As for the people who have completed every single challenge thus far, you guys are rock stars, too! Just remember this post, should you have a trip up in the coming weeks. The goal is to make some progress and honestly, the fact that you've committed to being in this challenge group with me {in the prime-time of summer} is some major progress in itself. 

Group: your dedication is inspiring and I am so happy to be working alongside you all this month! Keep up the great work, everyone!
