“Do one thing every day that scares you.”-Mary Schmich
Today is an intimidating day. I just got done with an interview this morning and later on I’m going on a date. Just to update you on my love life- no it’s not the guy I met at Starbucks it’s a guy I met online. I know sketchy, but your girl gotta put herself back out there. I’ll let you know how it goes and if I got catfished and if I don’t write another post tomorrow you all know I got kid napped haha.
My point with this post isn’t to tell you to go do an interview and make a dating profile. The point I want you all to hear today is spice your life up a little. Be honest to yourself. How many times do you do the same thing about everyday? You drive the same way to work. You eat the same foods. You do the same things on your day off. You talk to the same people.
I’ve talked a lot about falling into patterns on here and I wanted to expand on it today. There are so many opportunities out there waiting for you, but many times you are missing them because you’re not just going out there. I forgot who said it but someone said “inspiration finds you working.” I find this to be true about opportunities. When you go out there searching for opportunities they will come find you as well.
If you think you are going to find opportunities chilling out in your room watching Netflix you have another thing coming. Unless you are very, very lucky you are not going to get an opportunity out of that. You have to be out there searching for things.
To those who fall into your current way of doing things I know it’s so scary to put yourself out there, but when you do you will be not only proud of yourself, but also so happy you did. Even if things don’t go as you planned at least you can say you had the guts to do it. Just for doing it you are ahead of most people!
I challenge all of you to put yourself in a situation you think is alittle scary but worth it at the same time. Now maybe not as crazy as me going on a date with someone you don’t really know, but other things. Maybe you really want to go skydiving but it scares you. Okay, maybe that’s an extreme example too, but just do something, even a little scary that will benefit you. Maybe it will mean going on an interview for a new job after you been with the same company for years. Maybe that’ll mean leaving that abusive relationship to be out on your own. Maybe it’ll mean to not go to things like alcohol for your problems.
I could go on and on with examples but hopefully you kind of get what I’m saying. Do that scary thing! Dare to go out of your comfort zone. You’ll never know what you’ll find outside of it. Who knows maybe you’ll even find your calling in life doing something that scares you a bit.
Well that’s everything for today.
Have a great day and I’ll write again tomorrow,
