Hi Team...

I can not tell you how many situations I find myself in where I am not comfortable...

At least at the beginning of the new experience...

Now, at first I thought this was not normal.. 

I should always be comfortable, right?


It is normal to be uncomfortable and slightly nervous if you have not done something before...

Why do I share this?

This is the reason why most never start something new...

This is the reason why most people never meet their full potential, start that business, make the move to a new state, or, just try/ learn a new activity or skill...

They are not comfortable in new situations and as a result, they play it safe.

They play it safe by living in an environment and situation they know all to well...

What is scary is that they accept the negatives of those environments and situations because at least they know what to expect..

But is that any way to live?

Of course not.

This is also the reason why most people never change their habits, thoughts/ mindsets, and behaviors... they are closed..

Not consciously closed.. but subconsciously closed in terms of their mindset and attitude and choices...

Life is much more exciting, rewarding, and fulfilling when you take a shot on yourself and just go for it...

Is there a chance you can fail in taking a shot?


Sometimes you miss.

That is no reason though to not play the game... and much like sports, you can always take another shot.

Very cool.

Think about how exciting your life would be if you took the governor off and walked towards your fears, hesitations, and away from your comfort zones...

That is where you growth is....

And listen, this message is not about quitting your job or moving over-seas.. it is about quitting living in a comfortable, safe, non-challenging manner. 

There is so much out there for you to experience, try, and there is an impact that you are meant to make....

It is your job and obligation to yourself to experience life to the fullest. 

It is so easy to say no... or decline the invite, or just keep living the same day over and over with your same routines that no longer serve your or excite you... 

That is not living.

Growth, progression, expansion... that is what life is all about...

So, today, learn something new...

Acquire a new skill.

Sign up for a new experience.

At the very least try something new!

Let's go!

Your Coach,
