Step OUT of Your Comfort Zone


Have you ever heard the phrase “Life begins one step outside of your Comfort Zone?”

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.out-of-your-comfort-zone

The funny thing is, that MOST people have the same EXACT fears as you do.

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.  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.

Don’t let life just “happen” to you. 

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  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.
