Stepping out of the Comfort Zone

Don't you think it's nice and comfy in the Comfort Zone? I tend to love it - however that's not going to get you to achieve your biggest dreams.

The other day I came across the website of a wonderful woman, Marie Forleo. In her words (from her website), she's is the "love child of Tony Robbins, Richard Branson, Oprah & Jay-Z". Her website & newsletters are full of tools to improve your business and life.

On Marie's website is where I came across the chance to win a ticket to her annual conference in NYC (value $2000!). This is where my Comfort Zone was left behind.
At this link you find the rules to enter to win. When I read it was a video entry I closed the browser. I left! Then I thought, "You know, why not??". So I sat down and read all the details that needed to be in this video - Public on YouTube, Ahh! - but I stuck it out and actually did it! And you know what? It felt good, I actually just did something that I would have never dreamed of!

Mind you, I don't think I'll actually win, there are SO many amazing entries already (nearing 350 comments on a 4 day contest, and still more than 24 hours to go!) but it still is amazing to do something out of the ordinary.

So just a note, from someone safe in the Comfort Zone, it is fun to step out once in a while, and none of the scary things, you might think of, will happen!


  1. Good for you for stepping out of that comfort zone!! :) Not an easy thing to do - you're awesome! :)

    1. Thank you!! I swear you imagine all these crazy things could happen if you step out, and they didn't! It was empowering! I try and do it at least once a day!
      You're awesome as well! xoxo
