Don’t Be Afraid To Let Go of the Good, to Get To The Great!

Stepping outside your comfort zone

Don’t be afraid to let go of the good, to get to the great!

I’m sure you’ve heard of that saying before, “Don’t be afraid to let go of the good to get to the great!”

What does it mean?

For me, it means that don’t get so comfortable with ordinary that you are afraid to reach for the extraordinary. Don’t be afraid to step outside your comfort zone and go for what you really want, even if the life you have right now is comfortable.

I have heard people say, “I would really like … but I have a nice house, a family and a good job. I don’t need anything else. I’m okay.”

I’m not sure we were put on this earth to just be okay. I think God gave each of us a talent and that it is up to us to push ourselves to become all that we were meant to be. To use our talents to do great things for His glory.

We aren’t meant to just survive. We are meant to thrive.

I have watched on Facebook many of my Diamond friends from Young Living experience a thriving existence in Hawaii. One of them has spent the last 3 weeks there in paradise. She arrived a week before the retreat, stayed through the Young Living retreat and is now enjoying another week.

It is my hope that one day I will join them on these Diamond trips as I introduce others to a happier, healthier and more abundant life.

Yes, it’s uncomfortable to approach strangers, to call people, to do classes. However, if you look at it from the prospective that you are helping others achieve their goals, then the journey becomes a lot less frightening.

Whatever your dream is, whatever goal you may have set for yourself at some point, then abandoned, I want you to know that it’s never too late. You can live a better life.

Don’t get so caught up in a comfortable life, that you settle for less than what you want.

Have a blessed day.
