Email us at hello@christywright.com to let us know what you think of the show. What keeps you from investing in yourself? What keeps you from growing? All of us have challenges in our lives. But if we don’t understand how to overcome these challenges, we’re never going to grow. Today, we’re talking about how to grow as a person and a leader. Then, I’m going to unpack an article on why you should invest in yourself. And finally, we’ll spend some time journaling about the areas in your life you need to grow. Why It’s Okay to Be Bad at Something In order to grow, we have to get outside of our comfort zones. We have to be willing to invest in ourselves and learn something brand new. One of my favorite ways to grow and become better is by surrounding myself with people who are better at things than I am. I love to seek out people who are really good in certain areas of their lives that I want to be good at and ask them to hang out. Yes, it's humbling—but that's where growth happens. If you want to be better in any area of your life, you've got to be willing to be the small fish in the big pond. You've got to be willing to get outside your box and your comfort zone and invest in yourself to learn something new. The Best Thing to Invest In I want to spend a few minutes unpacking an article I saw recently on Forbes.com called Why You Should Invest in Yourself by Amy Modglin. This article is a great reminder that the things we struggle with are actually really common to most of us. But if we don't understand how to overcome these challenges and barriers, we're never actually going to grow. In the article, Amy shared about a lack of confidence she had and the fear that kept her from investing in herself. She said that all changed when her friend and mentor, John Maxwell, said, “Growth doesn’t just happen.” Amy’s biggest barrier was being afraid she wasn’t worth it. She wasn’t investing in herself. The same thing is true for you and me. You're not going to get to somewhere new by doing the same thing you're doing today. You have to do something different. You have to invest in yourself. Remember: You get to have a say in who you become, but you've got to do something about it. You can't just sit on the sidelines. You have to take the reins. You have to get in the game. You have to read a book, get a coach, go to a conference. You have to do something. You are worth it. Are You Growing? Today, I want you to spend some time reading Ephesians 4:1–16. This passage is saying just grow to grow. Not to be better than others. Not to be impressive. Grow so that you’re not tossed back and forth. Grow so that you have a solid foundation. Grow to become more and more like the God who created you. Grow to become more like Christ. I want to give you a few questions to consider as you journal, as you pray about this, and as you think about what this means for you in your faith walk. * How do you grow? * How have you matured in the last year? * How are you growing in love?

Hint Water’s CEO Kara Goldin (ep. 300)
What would you do if you weren’t afraid? Kara Goldin left her Vice President job at AOL to launch Hint Water with one simple goal: Make water that tastes great. Finding herself overweight, with low energy + adult acne, Kara discovered her diet soda habit was the culprit. To entice herself to drink water in its place, she added “hints” of fruit flavor to plain water. This was the inspiration behind the fastest growing, #1 flavored water in America: Hint. Today, Kara shares how she uses rejection as motivation, balances work with raising her four children and how “success” looks different for each of us. Get your favorite Hint Water ready because this conversation will have you racing forward with ferocious optimism! SHOW NOTES: * Huffington Post listed her as one of six disruptors in business, alongside Steve Jobs and Mark Zuckerberg. * Teamwork: Growing up with five siblings, two over 15 years older than her, she had great role models. * As a leader in the community, Kara's mother taught her to "love what you're doing" while her dad was an innovator for the brand Healthy Choice. * "Just go for it. Stop worrying about what could happen. Instead, enjoy the journey." * Kara encourages us all to look at our accomplishments to be reminded of our own success, including friendships. * "Passion trumps experience." * Learn more about Hint Water. * Get a copy of Kara Goldin's book Undaunted. KARA GOLDIN'S LIVE INSPIRED 7 1. What is the best book you’ve ever read? The Originals by Adam Grant. 2. What is a characteristic or trait that you possessed as a child that you wish you still exhibited today? Curiousity. 3. Your house is on fire, all living things and people are out. You have the opportunity to run in and grab one item. What would it be? At 13-years-old, my mom kept a journal of her experience during the Depression. 4. You are sitting on a bench overlooking a gorgeous beach. You have the opportunity to have a long conversation with anyone living or dead. Who would it be? Ruth Bader Ginsburg. 5. What is the best advice you’ve ever received? While moving to New York, my dad asked me, "what's the worst that could happen?" 6. What advice would you give your 20-year-old self? It's okay to not know what you ultimately want to do. 7. It’s been said that all great people can have their lives summed up in one sentence. How do you want yours to read?
