Remember when you were about to do something really scary? Your first kiss? First speech? First day of college? First day on the new job?
You had to step out and try something out of your comfort zone.
How did it feel? Was it scary? Exciting? Exhilarating?
Comfort zone is a scary word.
It's a scary place.
Just before something wonderful and exciting happens,
we are faced with the choice to stretch or stay.
When we are younger the choice seems obvious.
Because we are expected to spread our wings.
As we get older it is harder because we are expected
to be responsible and "safe."
I was part of a conversation the other day that was fascinating.
At a wedding, a man sitting at a table with his mom and friends, was telling
me his life experiences.
His mom kept chiding in.
He said: after 911 my department was the first to be let go at Boeing.
She said: I wish you would have stayed at Boeing.
He said: I tried some different sales jobs.
She said: I wish you would have done sales at Boeing.
He said: I became a car salesman and I LOVE it. I love sales.
She said: I really wish you would have stayed at Boeing.
He said: I like to take risks and try new things, life is too short.
He asked me to sum up my book in one sentence.
I said: Never give up on your dreams.
His bright eyes and smile told me he was so happy to have someone on his team.
Where can you stretch?
What are you wanting to do so badly but are so afraid to take the step?
The gremlin's are telling you...
Who are you to think you can.....
You can't do that...
Are you crazy?
Ask yourself, When I'm on my death bed, what am i going to regret the most?
"I wanna see you be BRAVE"
