"Move out of your comfort zone. You can only grow if you are willing to feel awkward and uncomfortable when you try something new.."
Listen to my thoughts about Brian Tracy's inspirational quote in the video below. You'll also discover a bit more about where I live in West Yorkshire (England!) - this time it's Castle Hill in Huddersfield.
What I Wonder...
(NOTE: Yes, I wrote any captions you see in this video. It's called self-deprecation, and it's mostly a healthy thing (I think!).)
So, as I said, putting this inspirational quote into action could be about starting a new class, joining a new reading group, or even starting a new part-time job, but it could also be about taking the first step in a much bigger journey.
What do I mean by that?
Well, what happens if you don't have any money right now to join a new class? How can you join with no money? You can't. But what you can do is find out all the places that offer a new class - you can at least get started with your idea. And then when your money situation improves, off you go. (Being ready for your new class might even motivate you to sort out your money situation sooner rather than later.)
Or, how about this rather stickier situation. What happens if you've been doing work on yourself - good, steady work - and now, because of this work, you've come to see that you're not as much fun as you used to be. Somehow life's knocked some of the sparkle out of your life. And this makes you a bit sad.
Firstly, sometimes this is what 'personal development work' does for you - it shows you your 'bad bits'. (In truth, life is and always will be about discovering more and more of yourself - 'good' and 'bad', but I digress!...) That's okay. Just do something about it.
And what you can do today, inspired by Brian Tracy's free inspirational quote, is to wonder how you're going to have a bit more fun today. (Watch these inspirational videos - inspiration to love life more!)
It might not require action, either, just new thoughts about how much fun you used to have and a new resolution to do more of those things in the future.
I hope you get the idea here.
There is always one small step in the "right" direction that you (and I) can take, each and every day.
