"Do one thing everyday that scares you."
How many times have you heard that? I’ve heard it a lot. Blah! I thought it was kind of a joke. That is until I was challenged to do it. Someone I’m working with actually is having me keep track of my daily foray into fear/confidence/love/trust in a journal for 30 days. I’m on day 15 and to tell you the truth, I’m quite proud of it so far. There are some pretty scary things in there. I’m not saying you have to jump out of the back of a plane but you do need to get uncomfortable. The more you do it, the stronger your core gets. That’s why you can’t give up, ever. You have to constantly push your boundaries. STRENGTH.
When I began this, I wondered if I was going to have to go looking for these scary things. Silly Bryce. Wouldn’t you know it, life handed me a new scary thing every single day. I didn’t have to go anywhere. The real theory behind all of this is NO MORE EXCUSES. Start reclaiming your power and living life on your terms. No more of these BS rules and judgments that we had nothing to do with making. And like I said, it doesn’t have to be huge, it can be tiny. It can be as simple as asking for your coffee order to be corrected or as big as beginning YOUR DREAM as a costume designer. If you’re scared, you’re worried of judgment from EVERYONE, you are terrified of how it will all turn out… YOU ARE DOING IT RIGHT!!! Those are the indicators of growth. Ohhh, it’s so scary and awesome at the same time.
The Quick and Dirty Task: Keep a journal of a few things you do everyday to really push yourself and grow. It’s a pretty incredible experience. Force yourself to do 30 days! This is power!
The Key: DO NOT WAIT. Do not wait for the perfect time. Do not wait for more information. Do not wait to test the waters. Do not write any more rough drafts. You just need to plunge head first into the unknown and become the beast you were born to be!!!!
BE THE BEAST! ROAR!!!!!
