Many of the things we dream about for our lives are just out of reach—just outside of our comfort zone. It requires us to stretch a bit further, make the difficult request, try a new skill, explore new territory.
We can easily convince ourselves that either we don’t really want it after all or we would go after it, or it is just not worth having. When you find yourself having this mental conversation, recognize that as the voice of fear operating to keep you safely in your comfortable space.
It takes courage to make changes. It requires us to not only have the insight of the patterns that drive our lives and keep us stuck in the same old ruts, but to actually take courageous action on that insight and do things differently—to change our daily behavior.
When we change our behavior, it affects the people around us. It challenges them to look at their lives and what is not working, which they may not be ready to do. They may prefer staying safely stuck in a rut with the company of you. Or…when you find the courage to change your behavior, it may inspire them to find their own courage to make changes. Together you can support each other in creating the life you dream of.
The question is: How do you want to go through life? Stuck in your comfort zone or growing into all the possibilities you can become, discovering new ways of being and new parts of yourself that are yearning to be expressed?
“There are pearls in the deep sea, but one must hazard all to find them. If diving once does not bring you pearls, you need not conclude that the sea is without them.
Dive again and again.
When we choose the path of expanding our comfort zone and growing, a whole new world opens up for us. Challenge those fearful thoughts and see where you can go!
All the best~
