Just say NO to the zone

Comfort Zones...letโ€™s talk about these tricky little dream suckers for a moment, shall we?


A comfort zone is a ๐“›๐“ฒ๐“ช๐“ป. It keeps us in itโ€™s grip and tells us that we are safe. It swaddles us up like a cocoon and lulls us to sleep.


Sorry to interrupt your cozy nap but


๐’ฒ๐‘’ ๐’น๐‘œ๐“ƒโ€™๐“‰ ๐“Œ๐’ถ๐“ƒ๐“‰ ๐“‰๐‘œ ๐’ท๐‘’ ๐’ถ๐“ˆ๐“๐‘’๐‘’๐“…!!!


We want to be ๐“๐”€๐“ช๐“ด๐“ฎ! Awake to the possibilities that are at our fingertips!!


You see, comfort zones trick us into believing that old habits are good for us because we think they make us feel good but the truth is, we are not moving forward when we are stuck in a comfort zone so in the long run it doesnโ€™t make us feel good at all. It just makes us feel stuck.


Now, Iโ€™ll be the first to tell you that leaving that comfort zone can be terrifying...but if you have heard me speak then you know that I also believe that if something scares you then itโ€™s probably the right decision. Easy decisions are easy to make. Easy doesnโ€™t equal results. Easy keeps you right where you are. Hard decisions are hard to make. Hard equals results. Hard work & hard choices...well, they push you forward.


I found myself in a comfort zone lately. Plenty of excuses to wait. Plenty of excuses to stay comfortable during an extremely ๐’ฐ๐“ƒ๐’ธ๐‘œ๐“‚๐’ป๐‘œ๐“‡๐“‰๐’ถ๐’ท๐“๐‘’ time.


I felt good in my cocoon. I felt good eating pasta and watching the Food network. It just felt good. For a moment....


Then about half way through 30 min meals when they come out of the break and show her production staff of 10, I start wondering how Rachael Ray has built an empire. According to Wikipedia, Rachael Domenica Scuderi Ray is an American television personality, businesswoman, celebrity cook and author. She hosts the syndicated daily talk and lifestyle program Rachael Ray, and the Food Network series 30 Minute Meals...and then I remember that


๐“˜ ๐”€๐“ช๐“ท๐“ฝ ๐“ฝ๐“ฑ๐“ช๐“ฝ


No, I donโ€™t want to be a celebrity cook but I want access to a platform THAT huge to be able to change lives. I want to bring women out of the darkness and into their bright beautiful light and guess what...it ainโ€™t gonna happen on my couch, eating pasta under my favorite blanket, in my comfort zone.


What do YOU want? What do you dream about? Pray for? Think about non stop?


The cold hard truth is that it ๐“ฆ๐“ฒ๐“ต๐“ต ๐“ท๐“ธ๐“ฝ happen if you stay where you are. You canโ€™t move forward if you stay stuck in the ground. Frozen solid with fear. That comfort zone that you think is your friend is your enemy. Break free from that and watch yourself accomplish more than you could have ever imagined.


I know because I did. I left behind so many things that made me comfortable and I talk about it that a TON in my book, ๐“œ๐“ธ๐“ป๐“ฎ ๐“ฝ๐“ฑ๐“ช๐“ท ๐“ช ๐“ฌ๐“ธ๐“พ๐“ท๐“ฝ๐“ป๐”‚ ๐“ผ๐“ธ๐“ท๐“ฐ. As a matter of fact, publishing this book has pushed me out of another comfort zone. If you think I wasnโ€™t scared to death to send it to editing think again....but I did it because if I wouldnโ€™t have then I would be right here. With a manuscript and thatโ€™s it. It would have stopped with me. It would have ended there.


Iโ€™m pushing you. Let me. I wonโ€™t let you fall. If I didnโ€™t believe in this so darn deeply and trust the process then I would never ever put my name on it and post for the world to see.


Itโ€™s time. You have permission. You have support. You have encouragement. Just say NO to the comfort zone and watch what starts to unfold.
