Test the Water

Saturday, June 9th, 2018

When we don’t test the water we don’t know where we stand.

I was taught not to disrupt the flow and keep up the status quo.

That was poor advice but it was what I learned to do.

If we don’t test the water we don’t know just how much we can grow.

In all relationships we have a choice.

We can stay with what we know and basically tread water indefinitely.

Or we can present a challenge to self and partner. Raise the bar so to speak.

Ask for what you need and want. You are not asking for too much when you do this.
It is never too much to ask for what you want and to have your needs met–it is a sign of strength.

A true partnership is much stronger than we think. A partnership that goes untested is more fragile than one
that has faced multiple challenges.

A true valued partner provides opportunity for candid and quality conversations. They will tell you what you need
to hear, not what you want to hear. If you never get to the place where the water is tested chances are you will not meet growth
head on. And if you choose not to grow your going in the opposite direction.

Deep Water

Sunday, June 4th, 2017

Jumping into deep water when you’re fairly uncertain is not the best course of action to take but…

if you’re in the wading pool too long you run the risk of never getting out.

Head for the area where you can look over your shoulder and see the wading pool but not so far away that you’re unprepared and leave yourself open to drowning in the deepest part.

As you gain momentum and experience you will be able to navigate through to deeper water.
