Go For It!

Your heart is beating in your ears. You can’t breathe. You’re sweaty. No, you’re not having a heart attack; you’re doing something different. You’re stepping out of your comfort zone. And, oh!, it feels so awful. You actually think you may die on the spot. You won’t. I promise.
Here’s the deal: every day we operate in our world. The world we are comfortable with. The one we know. We do it even though this may not be the ideal world for us. Even though we may be unhappy, stressed, or just complacent. It’s our comfort zone. So regardless if you’re happy there or not, it’s safe. That you can trust. That is for sure. It’s what you know, so you choose to stay there. Yes, you choose it. I know it’s hard to believe, but you are choosing what you know vs what you don’t know. When you step out of your comfort zone, you take a step away from what you know. And that voice in your head screams: DON’T DO IT!
Don’t listen to it. DO IT! GO FOR IT! Take the step. Jump! Just do it. The fear is always way worse than what actually happens. When you step into the fear, it disappears. Just imagine what could be….
It’s time to step out of your comfort zone. Go to a party alone. Buy a sparkly dress. Ask that guy out. Make a Christmas video. It doesn’t matter what it is as long as it pushes you. Once you start stepping out of your comfort zone, you’ll be amazed at what happens. This Holiday Season give yourself a real gift—a gift of courage to do something different.
