Just when you think you are at the top of your game … BOOM! I had a sudden realization that although I loved my job and my co-workers, I was not living up to my potential. I had two choices: 1. stay in the discontent of living small or 2. take a good look in the mirror and see where I could make improvement.
After attending two life changing events (UPW Dallas and Masterminds – more on this later), I began to feel sad and somewhat depressed. What if there was more to life than just smooth sailing? I watched as Tony Robbins and Darren Hardy took the stage and spoke about taking massive action and the compound effect of small changes over time. Although both had different angles on making a change, the messages were similar. A different outcome would require a different approach.
Einstein’s explanation of insanity began to make sense – “Doing the same thing over and over again and expecting different results”
It became rather clear to me that personal change was not an option but a necessity! The changes began in June of 2016. The fear set in pretty deep and I developed migraines so painful that I had to take a week off of work. I realize looking back that the headaches were a manifestation of the fear of change.
As Tony Robbins says quite often, I made the jump and, “Burned the Boats”. No turning back now! I’m happy to say that I am deeply out of my comfort zone and that’s okay. It is both humorous and exhilarating.
“Life happens outside of your comfort zone.”
If you want to kick start your life, try doing something different. Hire a life or business coach, attend a motivational conference, read about your favorite successful business leaders and emulate what they do. Let your discontent fuel you to make a change. Time to stop living small and LIVE LARGE!
