Yes, it can be very scary! I’m going through quite a bit of change this year. Am I nervous or scared??? Hell yeah! Am I excited about the changes I’ve been working on??? You bet!
I have always been a big fan of change in my life. My parents shook their heads regularly when I was in my youth and as a young adult. My way was not their way, but they begrudgingly supported my choices. Those choices did not always work out well for me, but I never considered them a mistake. It was a lesson learned and the next time I’d change up what didn’t work.
So here I am again in what some call my “senior years” creating change in my life. It’s scary and exciting at the same time. I’m moving out of my comfort bubble again to create growth in my business and my personal life. We can’t create growth while remaining in that small bubble. Why do we feel the need to stay small?
I’m sure many of you don’t know this about me, but it’s been difficult for me in the past to meet new people and talk about myself and my business. As of this month, I am officially the Woodridge Chapter Leader of a women’s networking group called WESOS. This requires me to talk about myself and my business at every meeting. Large groups of unfamiliar women have always intimidated me. Many of the women reading this can relate. Yet, it gets more comfortable each time I do it. My head has not rolled off my shoulders and I haven’t vomited while speaking.
Each time I procrastinate on something, I know it’s fear based. I’m thankful I have that EFT tool in my back pocket to help me out with that. Stepping out of our bubble for growth is what I have taught for the past 2 years with Lori Lamont in Just Imagine. It’s challenging and scary, but I see our students moving forward in their life. We must realize that we can never outgrow the container we plant ourselves in. Be aware of the fear that shows up when it’s time to change containers. The growth and expansion that happens is worth making the change.
