I was listening to Phil Simms and he was talking about Tom Brady on the sidelines in the game last Sunday against the Tebow led Denver Broncos.
Simms said something that was really interesting.

He said, “Without conflict, there is no growth.”

Think about that. If there’s no conflict in your life, there’s never going to be any growth in your life either. Whether your conflict is with the demons inside of your head or with other people, having conflict in your life is good. Conflict is what life is all about.

In order to push yourself, you need to have confidence. If you’re frustrated in your life right now, it’s driving you crazy, and you’re sick and tired that you can’t meet women, that’s conflict.

The question is, are you able to push yourself through the conflict to be able to grow, and how are you going to do it?

What drives you?

Who pushes you?

What motivates you?

What makes you hungry to get past your hurdles to be able to grow as a person?
