Beach Notes by Guest Writer Suzie Cheel
I was walking on the beach this morning thinking about what I would write for my first post on Successful Blog. Liz and I have been talking for a few months now about my doing a regular post from Down Under.
I came up with Beach Notes, Liz said : “like messages in a bottle.”
Today as I asked Des (my life and business partner) what I might write, the words getting out of your comfort zone, came.
Interesting I thought as last week I put My Big Hairy Audacious Goal to the world and yesterday really stepped out of my comfort zone with the launch of a new blog where I have asked for help from my readers. So how am I feeling about this today, scarred but excited, the adrenalin is flowing and I feel finally I am moving forward. Getting out of the groove is looking very positive.
I wasn’t even distressed when the blog wasn’t flooded with comments or link love. In the past that would have been so discouraging. I am growing 🙂
I then thought about other times in my life when I have stepped out of my comfort zone and it has been life changing.
- Going to work in Nigeria when I was 22.
- When I left full time teaching to build a full time business with my art.
This time I feel will be life changing and will enable me to make a difference to my life, the lives of others and empower people to live lives full of joy, freedom and creativity.
Do you like stepping out of you comfort zone? How does it make you feel?
See you next week with another note from the beach.
