Pressure has the capacity to break us or make us.
There is something about a situation that stretches us, even if it is a tiny amount of pressure, it can grow our capacity and our ability to cope in future opportunities.
Often we say no, out of fear of pressure, expectations or the stretch of the responsibility.
When we are in a rested place and we are not striving to get validation from others, a situation of pressure can be the most liberating opportunity.
You know that feeling, when you take on a project and you are completely afraid but you stretch and do more than you could imagine.
You know that work leadership role, that you take on momentarily and then suddenly you are aware that you can actually do this.
We all have these moments presented to us, but not everyone says yes.
Pressure makes diamonds shine bright.
You were designed to shine brightly at something.
You have a piece of coal inside of you, that with the right environment has the capacity to shine bright.
Now that I’ve put you there on a hilltop, on a light stand—shine! Keep open house; be generous with your lives. Matthew 5: 15
Pressure brings forth the deep capacity, the hidden potential, the possible in your future.
If you are feeling pressured right now, you are at the point of change.
Diamonds of opportunities are being formed.
