A friend of mind who has been suffering from a lack of confidence for years changed her life around when she took a deep breath and got out of her comfort zone.
How did she change her life around and get out of her comfort zone? I persuaded her to join a Creative Writing Class. She gained the confidence to read her poetry and prose to the rest of the class. This was a big step for her. This woman is in her seventies. She loves reading and enjoys writing.
Because of her lack of confidence her writing was lying in a drawer in her bedroom,
Within weeks this new found confidence allowed her to make another giant step forward.
That’s the amazing thing about taking one step forward. It leads to the second step and before you know it your life has changed beyond anything you could imagine.
Take That One Step – You Won’t Regret It.
She had lots decided that she couldn’t understand computers, emails etc. and so she refused to even try to learn this new skill.
She was adamant about this and no matter how often I tried to persuade her to have a go she totally refused to have anything to do with technology.
To my surprise, after joining the creative writing class, she realised how convenient it would be for her if she could send emails with attachments (her writing), she finally gave in.
Within a very short time she was sending emails and photos to her friends and she has discovered that her past training as an administrator has given her a head start . She was comfortable with fonts etc. and today she told me that she realizes how much more difficult it must be for those who did not have the advantage of being able to type.
What have you decided you are not capable of doing?
Are you really so sure that you can’t do it under any circumstances?
Maybe, just maybe, you are underestimating your own abilities.
Perhaps a little drop of confidence poured upon your task would make a world of difference to your results.
Try it today, what have you got to lose?
So many things are so much easier to do than you could ever have imagined. Once you have overcome a few of these obstacles that are blocking your mind and your progress you will find that each time you open your mind, your life changes so much for the better.
Your comfort zone can be your prison – you may not see that today, but one day when you look back you will ask yourself why you didn’t do those things that you thought you couldn’t do. Regrets always stem from the things that you didn’t do, the mountains you could have climbed but didn’t.
If YOU feel that you just can’t get out of the rut that you are in, the repetitive life that you find yourself living, commit yourself to a better future. That is the first step, then do something new every single day.
Find some mentors for your fitness in body and mind, read some inspiring life stories of people who got out there and put themselves on the line to create an awesome future for themselves, their families and even mankind.
Never ever underestimate the power of courage and commitment to yourself.
Don’t be side-tracked by other people. Remember that the people who criticize you are usually those who lead dull uninspiring lives. Ignore their criticisms and try to push them up the ladder in spite of themselves, but never let them pull you down or hold you back.
Small changes in your mindset and habits can alter your life immeasurably. You will find yourself on a endless journey to success and happiness if only you will make the effort.
Take those small daily steps to leverage your goals.
I’d love to hear about the great results your new mindset has given you.
Looking forward to news of your breakthrough!
