Relocate from your comfort zone to Success

The picture above is funny, just like most of us he has a smile and thinks he is winning by being in his comfort zone….the problem is he will always remain in that bed and he won’t see all of the opportunities around him that can make life MAGICAL!

“The comfort zone is a place to rest, not to live” This quote really made me stop and think, reflecting on my own life there have been times I’ve taken the leap out of my comfort zone and as a result had a positive outcome. The leaps I’ve taken made me more comfortable, more confident, opened new opportunities and the list continues but somehow I’ve let myself stay stagnant for quite a bit of time.

The other benefit to trying new things is that it EXPANDS your comfort zone, so if you have a habit of hiding there then at least make it bigger so you can stretch out!

Assess whether you are resting or living in YOUR comfort zone and then decide what you can do to step outside of it. What will it be? What will your next move bring into your life?

I know I personally have never had a regret after I did something “bold” (we all have our own definition of boldness) I’ve always grown from it and I’m excited to continue the jumps but now I’m going to do it daily, weekly,monthly NOT just yearly!

Mentors are EVERYWHERE

Once you learn that Mentors come in all shapes and forms you will begin to see them EVERYWHERE you look and in every lesson you learn! 

Before knowing the true meaning of mentor(ing) I had this stereotype ingrained in my mind, it was a business person, older, more mature, polished, in a suit and this person was very successful throughout their lifetime. If you paid them the right rate they would spend a little bit of time with you telling you about their life and if you were lucky you might be able to replicate some of the stories into your own success.

I AM SO THRILLED I WAS WRONG ABOUT THAT! ( I don’t want to mimic someone else, I have my own ideas and so do you!) 

So what is a mentor really? Anything that teaches you or guides you! It can be something as simple as a book you read or a picture you saw. If you think about it some of the best mentors are actually not “matured” people at all but the exact opposite, and by that I mean CHILDREN! Children can teach you so many things like how a picture can be just as beautiful and in fact more colorful by scribbling outside of the lines, or that a box can be reused into something wonderful.

Other examples of Mentors:

  • Pets
  • A life change
  • A story
  • An encounter at the store
  • A TV show
  • A goal

Those are just examples showing that there isn’t one kind, but your mentors are personal to YOU!

When you are open to the lessons showing up in your life day after day you will suddenly be surrounded by mentors…..they are EVERYWHERE!
