“If you aren’t in over your head, how do you know how tall you are?” ~ T.S. Eliot
This is one of the most beautiful ways to remind yourself that you need to challenge yourself and push yourself. You have to constantly reach out and push your personal and mental barriers in order to grow and full and completely become the person your soul knows you are. Your potential can only be achieved by figuring out just how “tall” you are and only by getting in over your head (i.e. giving your all and maybe just a little more) will you figure out where your person will settle quite nicely. This doesn’t mean you must always be uncomfortable, or be in difficult situations, or anything like that. It just means you should never settle if you know you can push a bit for what you truly want. And you shouldn’t let fear hold you back (I know, easy to say…) because it’s usually worth the chance. At the very, very least, you’ll know you tried and you’ll know how tall you really are in the best of ways!
