What would you do if you knew you couldn't fail?
What would you do if you weren't afraid?
Two important questions I think a lot of us don't ever ask ourselves.
We live in a world where fear often runs our lives. We are too afraid to take risks. To make changes. We like status quo. We like comfort zones.
I know I lived in that place for too long. I didn't like the unknown. I didn't like not knowing what was going to happen next.
But you know what? Not knowing is EXCITING, just as much as it is scary.
Yes, the unknown can be a frightening thing. But that's the beauty of life. Even in our comfort zones, we don't really know what's coming next.
Life can change, and often does, in a heartbeat. I don't know about you, but I'd rather live a life I love and have chosen than one that was "mapped" out for me. You know...the one society tells us to live.
Comfort zones are just that...comfortable. Too comfortable. Boring, even.
I can tell you this...I've been scared $hitless every time I've made a big life change. Leaving the government was terrifying. Starting my own business was heart stopping. Walking into a CrossFit gym for the first time made me breathless. Coaching my first CrossFit class made my heart beat so fast. My first health coach client...my first personal training client...my first skincare client...all made me so darn nervous!
But...it all was so exhilarating too! These were all MY choices! Things I love and am passionate about. Things I CHOSE to do! And wasn't TOLD to do!
I wouldn't be who I am today without making those choices. Without stepping outside my comfort zone. I wouldn't be where I am today either.
Life is still scary. Making big choices is still scary. And I have to choose the scary things, just about daily.
But I love my life. I love the journey I've been on. I love the journey I'm continuing on. And I love the plans I have in place for my future.
Keep an eye out, because I have big things coming! I'm excited for all the changes that will be happening in my life soon!
So...what about you? What would you do? What have you been putting off because of fear? What is something you've been dreaming about? I would love to hear them! Let's see if we can kick your fear's butt and get you started on your journey!
Have a beautiful week!
With love and wellness,
