Getting out of your comfort zone is hard…. That’s exactly why we say, “out of comfort” – as in UN-comfortable. So it makes sense why so many stay where it feels safe… But this is such a dangerous trap! Growth, at it’s best… Happens when we get uncomfortable. The most amazing experiences of my life – all happened when I was the most terrified.
So what about you? What have you been wanting to do for a long time but just keep “holding off” on?
One of our crazy ‘get out of your comfort zone’ exercises for The Thriving Photographer’s Mastermind Retreat – FL. was in creating this Harlem Shake video. The Mr. thought of it months ago, but just wasn’t sure if we would have time. At the very end of the retreat we found that time!
Everyone jumped in, played their part and we got to laugh till we cried in the process! Chelsea our fearless intro dancer made a comment that stuck with me, she said… “You know the comfort zone? I live perpetually out of that zone”. And that got me thinking about the success these women have experienced…
The 19 women who came to spend the weekend with me have made a-m-a-z-i-n-g things happen! It’s not that they’re not afraid of getting uncomfortable… In fact many of these women shared the truth about how scared they really were as they went for it… But they decided that the risk was worth it!
These women have challenged themselves to step up their game in every way… They started by investing in The Thriving Photographer™ – then they had to actually implement what they learned; new pricing, new sales techniques, new marketing strategies! With disbelief and shock they saw their value go from $200 a session to thousands per session. And last week they each flew from all parts of the country to a spend 4 days in a house full of women they only know virtually… To get silly and crazy and vulnerable… And to Harlem Shake. They realized that THEY are worth the risk!
So here is my CHALLENGE FOR YOU… Leave a comment and share where you’d really like to grow and why it’s uncomfortable for you and then go take the first step in making that growth you crave, become your reality. YOU ARE WORTH THE RISK!
