Comfort Zone - The Legacy of You

(That’s right, I said shiz!)

It’s always been my calling in life to help other people pursue meaningful work, but I’m sure you’re asking yourself why that leads me to want to scare the shiz out of you.

Well we, as humans, are programmed to stay inside of our comfort zones. Our brains will always tell us, “Don’t touch that, don’t eat that, don’t talk to that person, etc.” Why? The easy-to-swallow answer is that it’s for our continued survival, but it goes much deeper than that. Simply put, it’s easy to stay inside our comfort zones because it’s safer than leaning into the unknown.

Give yourself permission to leave your comfort zone

However, if you really want to lead and create meaningful shiz for others during your lifetime, you’ll have to give yourself permission to leave your comfort zone and lean into the uncomfortable.

Change is required to make something great with your life. The greater the change, the larger the impact you will make. The larger your impact on the world, the heavier your workload will become. The heavier your workload becomes with any new endeavor, certainly the more discomfort there will be!

To become your best that discomfort MUST be leaned into

Ask out your crush.
Break up with the person you know isn’t right for you.
Buy the equipment to complete the project.
Call someone you believe is beyond your reach.

Scary shiz is only the beginning of your next massive creative endeavor

  1. I have been in really uncomfortable places over my 56 years, with no choice and no control and I came through it all and am a stronger, wiser, and more appreciative of my blessings than ever before in my life. Being out of my comfort zone has made me the person I am and for that I have no regrets. I have, however, held back in things I would have liked to do for myself. I sing, I like to express myself with words, I enjoy beautiful things and even, on occasion, creating them. I’ve always been a day dreamer, or as my Italian mother would say, “You’ve got you head up your ass again!! Get off your merry go round!!”. I feel like this time in my life is for doing things that make me happy. I love my job and in my free time I try to surround myself with things and people who bring me joy and loyalty and fun. I’m glad to be older. It means I’m not dead and that means anything is possible.
