Well, I’ve just got back from a really inspiring few days with my mentor, Lisa Sasevich, in San Diego and how great I feel!
On the plane back I was thinking about how empowered I felt and about how just getting into a different space (mentally and physically) has such a hugely positive effect. It felt like moving out of a small, dark cramped room into the light of a massive, 360°amphitheatre!
And what that gives is VISION… the vision to think big, to trust instincts and embrace the total enormity of what’s possible. Not bad, eh?
But, here’s the thing. Most of us, most of the time operate within the confines of that small, dark cramped room…and we don’t even know it! We’re on auto-pilot. We do the same things every day, we get the same results, we accept the same results… we do the same things, we get the same results… you get the picture. And, what happens when we repeat the same actions over and over again? They become habits, and habits are really quite comfortable, aren’t they! We know them, we trust them, they don’t surprise us, they’re safe… hmmm.
So, let me challenge you to break a habit today (preferably a bad one, of course!). Say “no” to something you do repeatedly that’s not moving you forward, something that’s keeping you in that small dark room. Ask yourself what opportunities you’ve not acted on today because it felt safer doing your old familiar stuff?
Identify one, act on it and step into that amphitheatre. It really is the only place to be!
