#MondayMotivation Familiar is Safe but is it Life Changing?

Today I took a step out of my comfort zone.
Right now it feels exhilarating but we all know that things outside our comfort zone can be scary.
When it is scary, you can either continue, or run back to what is familiar.
That space where things you do are routine feels good because you don't risk anything and are probably happy. Or think you're happy.

The danger with staying in that zone though is you may never truly reach your full potential, nor be as productive as you could be. If you do it once, you can then do it again because it gives you confidence and helps you be more creative.

What can you do to get out of it?
- Do! Do! Do!
My instinct is to think a lot but there are so many times that I have analysed myself to inaction.
Thinking is good as it helps you weigh pros and cons but do learn to also ACT.

- Do Something New
You can learn a new skill or brush up on skills you already have, like learning to play the piano or to speak Spanish, make a new friend, get a new hair style or buy some clothes different from your main style.
You can also go to a new place, city or country.

- Don't expect it to be Easy
Nothing that involves breaking or varying a routine is ever easy. Even where the first step like in my case today is easy, there will be something else that comes from that step that will still scare you.
Understand it and don't be afraid of it.

I hope these few tips help.
Can you s.h.a.r.e any with me?
