Step out of your Comfort Zone!!

What could you have done, what could you have been, what could you have seen?

Many people seek opportunities and options. They will wait for them. They will watch them come--and they will watch them go. And someday they will remember those options with regret in their voice. But at least they were safe. They did not stumble, they did not fall, they were not bruised.

And then there will be other people who seek out the options. They wait for them. They watch them come and they hold their breath and jump. And it is exhilarating, no matter whether they land on their feet or on their head. Because when you believe and jump, you learn the true meaning of faith.

You learn to trust in life and the process instead of yourself and your mind. And once you reach that place ... your options and possibilities are limitless.
Your Action Steps:

Think about your life and the options, dreams and possibilities you have sought out. Have you hunted for something, only to retreat when it landed on your doorstep? We can only learn and become more by going to a place where we don't know and we have room to become.

Columbus couldn't have discovered the world if he only looked in his backyard. Where are your options taking you? What land are you being called to discover? What will you do about it? Will you live your story, or will you tell a story of regret?

Your affirmation:

I step outside of my comfort zone and into life, and I love every minute of it!
