Have you done anything lately that really scared you but…

“It matters not what a person is born, but (whom) they choose to be.”
J. K. Rowling

One of the most important reasons you can become a better person today is because you can choose to “step outside the box” now instead of living your life in continuous fear. Not stepping through fear can make you unhappy, limited, and controlled.

You can be free of that limiting thinking!  Constantly and continually prove this to yourself by “stepping outside the box” when you are being challenged in life. When you are in a situation that, from past experience, makes you feel uncomfortable or scared, keep the following things in mind and it will be much easier:Susan_Karim

1. Most of the things I worry about never take place

2. Doing something I fear will make me grow as a person

3. I will gain more confidence and personal supremacy

4. My past does not equal my future

5. I will be contributor, instead of an observer, of life

Have you done anything lately that really scared you but, after you did it, you realized you had greater confidence and personal power?  If you haven’t, give it a try! The only way to get past your fear of doing something is to do it…Now!

The objective is not to just to break through the walls of your box but to have no box at all.  Stepping outside the box and getting uncomfortable is the only way to grow as a human being. We admire the courageous people, those who take risks and go out there in spite of feeling scared and uncomfortable.

If you want to achieve your goals, you have to stretch yourself, step outside of that box you have created, get out of that comfort zone, and take chances! Challenge yourself by stretching your thinking, embracing diverse ideas, and trying new things. Your world will begin to expand and your confidence will grow. Your dreams will come alive and your possibilities will be endless!
