Have you ever taken a giant step forward in either your business or your home life? Were you scared or sure this was the right step to take? Somehow we learn more from the experience if we start in fear. My theory is that we have such a wide range of emotions to go from fear to excitement at the breakthrough that it seems like we’ve learned more, but really the wide range of emotions just gets our attention more.
I know a lot of times I, and other coaches, say to take baby steps, which is a great thing, but once in a while we just need to take a giant step that takes us out of our comfort zone.
So what do you think? Do you have a goal that seems a little big that you keep putting off that taking a step could help get you moving? What steps could you take? For example, if you want to start dating again after a long dry spell or a relationship that is no longer working, do you jump into on line dating or ask your friends for a blind date? Or maybe if you are at your office, you volunteer to take on a big project for the boss.
First, find a goal you want some movement on.
Second, come up with one or two and see what resonates with you. Use your imagination; really think big. If you need to, find someone you trust that has a great imagination and maybe thinks outside the box.
Third, evaluate what you come up with and make a decision. The decision should be something that will lead you toward your goal, feel right and probably be out of your comfort zone if you are taking a “giant” step.
What do you think? Are you ready to take that giant step into the unknown? I have faith in you. You can do this thing. Let’s make a pact to make our dreams come true.
