I must admit that on occasion I watch the TV show, What Not to Wear. I find it interesting how sometimes we can be so clueless when it comes to dressing ourselves in a pleasing manner. Me included.
What I like about the show is how Stacy and Clinton are always so positive with their ‘client’, in this case a young woman. They pointed out her best attributes and helped her find clothes that fit her unique style. I watched the whole show and at the very end, Stacy quotes Neale Donald Walsch by telling the young woman, “Life begins at the end of your comfort zone.”
Who says you can’t get inspiration from a reality show?
“Life begins at the end of your comfort zone.” I was so impressed by this quote, that before the show was over, I was writing it down. How often do we stay in our comfort zone because we are afraid to take that next step? We stay where it is safe, warm and comfortable only to realize at the end of our lives that we missed so much.
Again, I must admit that I have been staying in my comfort zone. However, I do realize that life is passing me by and I am missing it. I have this talent / ability to help people through their issues or challenges. I know that am good at it. While I am taking the steps to learn, experience and practice life coaching skills, I haven’t taken that ultimate step to make it a full fledged business. I am finding it a little difficult to move beyond my comfort zone. Why?
Why? I ask myself this question often. Then I realize that the question is not why, but, what. What is keeping me in this comfort zone? As always, the answer is my mind. My heart is fearless when I open up to all possibilities and to receive love. It is my mind that fuels my fears. My mind keeps me in my comfort zone as my heart pulls me out of it. It is time to follow my heart and put out my “Open for Business” shingle. I have nothing to lose and everything to gain.
“Life begins at the end of your comfort zone.” I am ready. Are you?
