“You need to write Blogs.” This is the encouragement (or nagging) I have been receiving from my friends. So, this journey begins.
In writing these blogs, it is my desire to encourage, empower, and perhaps even provide a tool that will equip you to maximize your own unique potential.
The thing is, I get frustrated when dealing with a lot of detail stuff. Setting up this Blog is a simple thing (that’s what everyone is telling me. Then why am I having such a tough time with it? OK, I have help on board, so you will see many changes coming soon. The changes will relate to the appearance and functionality of this site.
I have read that the average person only uses about 10% of their brains capability. That means that they may tap into that much of their potential Most people barely scratch the surface of their potential. As young children, we were willing and even eager to attempt new things. You know, things like walking, talking, feeding ourselves, riding a bicycle, and many other things without even considering whether it was sensible, practical, etc.
The older we get the more reluctant we seem to be to take those risks. We allow fear to lead us into a wide range of excuses to remain in our comfort zone. Understand that your comfort is a very dangerous place to live – even though it feels safe.
What I mean bt is that when we seek to stay in our comfort zone, we miss the excitement and fulfillment of becoming who we were designed to be. Every person has the desire to be more. I don’t believe that ever goes away, though it can be buried beneath all our excuses that keep us stuck in our “comfort” zone.
“How do I get out of this comfort zone?” I am glad you asked!
The starting point is that you need to change your thinking. Your thoughts – not the fleeting thoughts you have, or recalling what you have stored in your memory bank, but thoughts that allow you to imagine. When you allow yourself to “dream again”, a whole new world of possibilities opens before you. When you serious consider these possibilities, your feelings change. Your feelings lead to actions, and those actions yield results. Too often we try to fix the results, rather than fixing the thinking. That will never work.
Here is a good tip: If you have a desire to be more, that desire is the evidence that you can be more.
Take time now to take pen and paper with you to a quiet place.
Now dream/imagine – what would you attempt if money was not a problem? Or, if you could not fail?
Begin writing – in detail – what you would do.
Now, how did that feel? Scary, exhilarating, encouraging?
Stay at that assignment. Work on that this week. Next week, we will take this a step further.
Keep on keeping on!
