Leap INTO Uncomfort, Not OUT of It!

Took a leap this week. Something I’ve been wanting to do a long time. I applied for a coaching program way outside my budget. It was daring. Possibly financially suicidal. 

Once I made the decision, I was overwhelmed by this sense of POWER. If you know me, you know I already live a very unrestrained life. But for the first time in a long time, I felt true FREEDOM. 

I was in complete control of my own life. There are no rules. Escaping the Matrix, baby.

This feeling of absolutely following my heart cleared my head of all fears and doubts. I was finally able to hear what my body was trying to tell me the whole time.

So much so, that I cancelled the whole thing.

Wait what?? Why?

Listen. I’m sure this coaching program would change my life. I’m sure these guys are the best and deserve only the best clients. I’m sure I’ll be working with them eventually.

But not today.

What my body was telling me was this: my decision to take this program wasn’t based on a mutual desire to CREATE. My decision came from frustration. Lack. FEAR.

I realized I was resisting a nasty lurking belief within me.

My harmful belief is: I’m unable to do the hard grunt work required to take my business to the next level.

Welcome to my glass ceiling,

I was fearing the hard work required to get there. My clever brain had cooked up this belief that the only way to reach the next level was to go through this program. A sort of magic pill solution.

Take the easy way out so I can avoid the hard work and avoid facing my own discomfort. That’s why I wasn’t ready.

Would I learn to get past my fears and doubts during the program? Probably. Would I find more profound revelations within the program? Certainly. But now is not the time. When I’m ready to grow, a new opportunity will present itself.

Leaping is good. Leap to create your dream life. Leap into uncomfort.

But do not leap to avoid uncomfort.
