A little over a year ago I made a decision that was one of the biggest ones I had made up to that point in my life. Not because it was something so crazy that nobody would ever imagine, but more because of the possibilities it held. Was I afraid – Absolutely! Was I worried that it would affect my relationship with my husband – you know it? Did I wonder if I was going to be able to make it – Yep! Basically – I made a choice to ENORMOUSLY step out of my comfort zone…
So with all of that being said, here’s what I want to tell you with 100% honesty:
I am sure you have heard the expression that “nothing grows inside a comfort zone”…well I had no idea how much I was stuck until I made this change. Don’t get me wrong, I am not saying that I don’t appreciate the things that my 20 year career taught me, but what I am saying is that I had reached the point where I was no longer growing, and for me that was equivalent to being stagnant, and almost without purpose.
Do you have things that you really want to change but you’re afraid to do?
Do you worry that you “won’t make it”?
Here’s what I will say – the definition of failure to me is not the falling down, but when you don’t get up. I have fallen, I have changed course, I have been stressed, I have felt like I was in over my head, I have felt scared that I wasn’t going to be able to do the things that Brandon kept pushing me to do…but here’s what I found out I AM PRETTY DAMN STRONG! Brandon knew when to push me, he knew when to cheer lead me, he knew when to be there for me and listen when I needed it…it was the right amount of encouragement for me!
This world is filled with people at different levels in their development – we need all those levels…but the important thing is to be in tune enough with yourself to know when it’s time for you to be bold enough to get out of your comfort zone!
Are you ready??
