If you have seen the movie Nacho Libre, you will find the title of this post comical, if not I still urge you to continue reading because this post is serious. If you exercise on a regular basis or have ever played sports, you have always been told the importance of stretching before you get started. The following are some reasons that stretching is important: keeping muscles supple, increasing range of motion of joints, enhancing flexibility, improving coordination, increasing body temperature and heart rate, increasing blood flow to muscles and preventing injuries. This same importance of being stretched applies to to our personal lives as well; if we want to improve and increase then we must willing to be stretched. With that thought in mind, answer the following question: Who or what is stretching you? Your answer should include but not be limited to the following: God’s Word, mentors, blogs, business partners, books, pastors, friends, spouses, co-workers, coaches…… The bottom line is if you are not being stretched then you are setting yourself up for injury. Don’t settle for status quo; find someone or something to stretch you daily. Give it your ALL daily, ASK LISTEN LEARN!
