Are You Talking Your Way Out of Success?

I don’t think there’s a single individual who wouldn’t like some area of improvement in their lives, whether it be more money, a nicer car, a bigger house, more vacations, better body, etc.

However, very few of us go out of our way to make those things a reality. Most of us are afraid to take chances and end up playing the what if game.

What if I go running and get hurt?
What if I try for that promotion and don’t get it?
What if I spend all of this time writing a book and no one reads it?
What if I buy a nicer house and lose my job?
What if I join that group and they make fun of me?

Most of us get into a comfort zone of life and never really stretch ourselves outside of that secure little niche.

Don’t let your what if’s keep you from enjoying life and pursuing your dreams.

Do Something! Lean in! Make yourself uncomfortable!

It is outside of the comfort zone where growth happens. Will you make mistakes? Yes! Will you learn from those mistakes? Yes!

You’re human and everyone makes mistakes. The fact is, you’re going to screw up. Other people will disappoint you. Life is messy.

Don’t let the messiness keep you from stepping out of that comfort zone and pursuing the life you want.

No one is guaranteed success, but one thing is certain … if you don’t risk anything, you will never know your full potential.

Don’t stall your life. Focus on the positive. Focus on what you really want and take the steps to make it happen.

Tell yourself not only will it work, but it MUST work.

Don’t talk yourself out of living the life you dream of.
