Challenge of the Week 7/9: Stepping OUT of Your Comfort Zone
Have you ever heard of the phrase “Life begins one step outside of your Comfort Zone?”
And it’s SO true.
To accomplish something worth-while, it will most likely require you to push yourself into areas where you are unfamiliar and uncomfortable.
Usually, the more uncomfortable it makes you, the bigger the payoff.
BUT…it’s always the people that challenge themselves BEYOND their fear that become successful.
Instead of looking at fear as a huge obstacle that gets in your way, embrace it.
When I get nervous or uncomfortable about a speaking at an event, I know that even though I may mess up a few times, speaking there will separate me from the crowd and will get me closer and closer to my goals.
I have made a personal commitment to myself that no matter how scary something is, if it’s something that has a benefit and will help me grow personally or professionally, I am going to say YES.
Whatever it is in your life that is holding you back, no matter how big or small it may seem, challenge yourself to break through the imaginary walls of your comfort zone.
You HAVE the ability to CREATE your life the way you want it.
Taking on new challenges and pushing yourself to reach new levels has a EVERYTHING to do with your confidence in yourself and your abilities.
When you’re feeling good, you want to take on the world.
If you’re not eating a relatively healthy diet and exercising regularly, then this would be step #1.
To be able to feel good and have the energy to live the life that YOU want to live, then these two things are non-negotiables.
To let ANYTHING get in the way of stopping you from living the life you want is truly a shame.
Whether it’s speaking in front of a group, making a phone call you’ve been wanting to make, mending a relationship, or starting a new career, no matter how big or how small it may be…..
You only live once- let’s step it up and step OUT of your comfort zone.
And…there is NO better time to start than NOW.
Your challenge this week is to do something EVERY DAY this week that is outside of your comfort zone (no matter how large or small it may be!)
I GUARANTEE you will be glad you did it.
For all of you ladies out there, if you’ve been stuck in a rut with your diet and exercise, and don’t feel good about where you are at right now, we have the PERFECT chance for you to step out of your comfort zone.
