(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
