You’ve got to jump off cliffs all the time and build your wings on the way down. – Annie Dillard
Life is about taking chances. Pushing yourself past your fears, self limiting beliefs, and outside of your comfort zones. It is only when we are operating outside of this comfort zone do we OPEN ourselves up for great opportunities.
Many of us get relaxed and comfortable with everything in our lives, day to day. Do you ever imagine what it would be like to push yourself out of these comfort zones? To JUMP off the edge of uncertainty?
Be it with falling in love, applying for a job outside of your field, ACCEPTING a job outside of your field and relocating 2000 miles away from your current residence. What are the things you would do if you weren’t afraid of failure?
What if I told you not to attach to the end result, not to see the end line and the POSSIBILITY of failure, of not getting the promotion you applied for, of the relationship you leaped off the cliff for MAY not work out?
Instead of focusing on things that are NOT IN THE PRESENT, focus on this moment. Commit fully to the application process for your new career venture, COMMIT fully to leaping off the cliff of love. Trust that your soul is guiding you exactly where you need to be going and that you WILL land on your feet. Always.
When you find yourself presented with choices today, with the options of doing something ‘different’ than your normal way of operating, try and push yourself outside of your own comfort zone. Instead of instantly responding to a request, or question, take a few minutes to reconnect with the truth deep inside and see how you align with your present choices.
And if it is, trust it and LEAN IN to your life in NEW, adventurous ways. Just today.And then tomorrow. And the day after that. Everyday, lean. in.
