WHY I STOPPED BEING COMFORTABLE

It’s amazing the things that will happen once you let go of…
·      YOUR FEAR!
·      DOUBTING YOURSELF
·      OTHER’S OPINIONS
·      YOUR FEAR OF FAILING
·      YOUR FEAR OF NOT BEING READY
·      BEING COMFORTABLE

All of the above, WE have to LET GO! It is crazy how fast the year is going already. And looking back at some of the goals and resolutions we set at the beginning of the year, some of us may not have even put a dent into these goals because of some of the above feelings. I, for one, struggled with the above a number of times this year and sometimes I still struggle with a few of the listed fears. I am learning day in and day out to LET GO of my fears.

Once I began to make myself uncomfortable that is when I started to see my personal growth. Let me give you this example of this. So last month, an event owner contacted me to speak at her event in front of a room full of future women entrepreneurs about business and tips on entrepreneurship.

When she asked me, I immediately thought “I can’t do this”. Initially, I was going to make up every excuse why I couldn’t. The reason I thought I couldn’t do it was because I thought I wasn’t “ready”, but boy was I wrong. Why did I plant these negative seeds in my head for an event that would be an amazing opportunity to share my motto with these aspirational women? I ultimately had to talk myself up and say “Girl, get your butt out there and DO THIS!”

I was scared because I was pushing myself OUTSIDE my comfort zone. Once we let go of being COMFORTABLE, that is when we will grow. If you are constantly in a state of comfortability then you are not growing. I told myself, if I am not feeling anxious, or nervous about an opportunity, then I am not pushing myself out of my comfort zone. I can’t continue to coast if I want to achieve my goals

Coasting is not an option! There is just way too much to do! I hope you will continue to push yourself past your comfort zones and go out there and grab ahold of whatever it is that is making you fearful. Whatever the goal is, you can achieve it! Just LET GO of any and all of the fears you may have and GO FOR IT- you got this my love!
