Swallowing Your Pride - Tuesday Challenge

"Time to eat all your words, open your eyes, swallow your pride."

-Tears for Fears

As I've said before, pride can be dangerous, because it gets in the way of us admitting we made a mistake, or asking for help. In other words, pride can keep us from growing.

Is there any doubt that the gentlemen above would have benefited from swallowing their pride and "fessing up" a little sooner? All they did was delay their own forgiveness and ability to move on.

Are their any current issues in your life you could move on from by swallowing your pride?

Last Tuesday I challenged you not to multi-task.

Today I have another simple - but not easy - challenge:

Admit you're wrong about something to someone, or ask for someone's help on something you've been trying to do yourself.

I know it can be pretty uncomfortable, but you can't grow without a little discomfort. It's impossible.

Besides: I GUARANTEE you that you won't choke by swallowing your pride.

On the contrary - I think you'll feel very relieved for it. A lot lighter!

Let me know how you do with this challenge - I'll try to post the most compelling stories.

  • Hello everyone, I am from Wembley, Britain. I want to write this testimony to tell others and thank Dr. Odunga for what he has done for me. The first 12 years of my marriage I had 5 miscarriages and I was called all sorts of names by my mother-in-law and this made my marriage life very hectic and a burden of sorrow. I contacted Dr. Odunga for help and I will say that he is a very strong and honest man and he indeed helped me solve my problem. I saw his email in a testimony and I contacted him, little did I know it would be the end of all my problems. After 2 days of contact, I received a fertility herb and he told me to use it. The herb worked and my husband even loved me more and bought me expensive things. One afternoon, I went to a nearby hospital and came back home with the positive result of my pregnancy and after 9 months I gave birth to a baby boy. Ever since I contacted Dr. Odunga, my story has been different. I have 3 children at present and I am very happy in my marriage. Please, contact him at odungaspelltemple@gmail.com OR Whats App him +2348167159012 to help you too
