I read this great quote today "You can have courage or you can have comfort but you can't have both". How true is that? I grew up most of my life staying close to my comfort zone because it was easy. I would stay away from anything that left me feeling uncomfortable. What that resulted in was me being unhappy and a constant feeling of being stuck. Since opening iamwell and stepping away from a 'normal' job I have constantly felt uncomfortable. I have pushed myself far outside of my comfort zone and strive to everyday. This is where growth and change happens. This is where goals and dreams are created and achieved.
I'm the type of person that likes to pretend like I can predict the future. I want control in everything. List making is my jam and I feel comfortable if I know exactly whats going on and what the outcome will be. How boring is that? This new season i'm in has been one of letting go and having faith and it has been absolutely wonderful. For the first time since opening the studio I've taken two vacations where others are in charge and I am completely unplugged. I've gotten away from the structure I thought a successful business needed and leaned more into my intuition and passion. For the first time in my life I feel like I have very little control.....and I kinda like it. As a result the studio is full, the teachers are thriving and my passion for the business is right back where it use to be.
Today I want you to lean into your courage. Step out of your comfort zone and take a risk. It might be something as small and switching up your evening routine tonight or it might be something huge like creating your own business. Step outside your comfort zone and watch the magic happen for you. It's all about vibes, good energy and having a little faith.
