My grandma sends me weekly thoughts every Monday. These thoughts range from quotes and articles to songs and words of advice. One of her thoughts has stuck with me and as I have applied her words to my life, I have noticed that I have become a better person. Here are the quotes she shared with me:
“The secret to your future is hidden in your daily routine.”
“There is no comfort in a growth zone and no growth in a comfort zone.”
The first quote is important to our lives, especially in today’s world, because it helps us put things into perspective. Everything we do leads to “eternal life” or “eternal death.” We don’t wake up every morning and think “I’m going to choose life eternal” or “I’m gonna choose spiritual death today!” But, we indirectly choose through all of our little actions. Our future is hidden in our daily routine meaning all of the little things lead to all of the big things in our life. And sometimes, in order to grow, we need to step outside of our daily routine; step outside of our comfort zones.
Although these are simple quotes and some simple thoughts, they have had a lasting impact on my life as I have tried to apply them to myself.
What are your thoughts on these quotes? How can you apply them to your life? What are your favorite quotes that have made a difference in your life?
