Life begins at the end of your comfort zone.
—Neale Donald Walsch
Who hasn’t wanted to change something in their life?
Who hasn’t wanted to make more money, lose a little weight, or maybe start eating healthier?
Most humans, at one point or another, have wanted to change something.
True? Yes, true.
And the sad and gloomy truth is—most people don’t.
Sorry to be a Debbie Downer.
Most people want to change, try to change and they just . . . . don’t do it.
While we can all come up with a ga-zillion reasons why we didn’t do THAT THING (that we thought would make us happier, healthier, or wealthier) the main reason we don’t’ change is because . . .
IT’S HARD. IT’S UNCOMFORTABLE. IT’S SCARY. IT CAN SUCK A LITTLE.
And while we all may sit around chit-chatting about how much we want X, Y or Z, there are about 1-3% of us that will pull through and make those MASSIVE changes and stick with it consistently.
In a nutshell . . . we don’t change because it’s hard. Yep, just because it’s hard.
Let’s be real . . . . faced with 2 choices, we almost always take the one that feels easier and safer.
We almost always choose what we know, even if it’s not the best thing for us.
We are creatures of habit, even when they are harmful to us.
Even when those habits can be lethal to us.
So what’s the trick?
What’s the key to getting into the 1-3% group?
As cliché as it may sound—thry feel the fear and do it anyway.
They carpe diem the shit out of each day.
They don’t give up when it’s hard. They get help.
And they drop the excuses, the justifications and the old stories that keep them in stuck-ville.
The super cool thing about it is—it’s only hard for a little while.
Then the things that once felt uncomfortable start feeling less awkward or challenging.
You start to feel more ALIVE from changing your diet, eating more high vibe foods and saying no to the daily donuts (or 5 cups of joe).
You feel more comfortable asking for the sale with your clients.
You don’t want to pee yourself when you say yes to a public speaking event (and follow through with it).
You start to feel more confident speaking your truth.
You step through what scares you, face it like superwoman (or man), and you do what the other 97% won’t.
You change. You say yes to your power. You open up new doors to all sorts of magic.
And then you just keep doing it. Rinse and repeat.
The main thing to remember when you are seeking change in your life . . .
You have two choices—
1. To hold back and not go after that thing you want to shift, change or try. To keep living in fear. To keep doing things that you know are chipping away at your soul.
2. Do it. Face it. Conquer it. Choose to say YES to creating new habits. Habits that get you on track to living an incredible, energetically rich and connected life.
And you don’t have to do it alone. In fact, I would highly advise not doing it alone.
Get help. Get a coach or mentor. Read the books. Reach out to others who have been where you’re at and made the changes.
And then welcome yourself to the 3%-ers club! The club for those ready to live life on their terms—a life outside of that boring old box.
