Today's Words of Inspiration - Get outside the comfort zone!

Dancing With The Stars new season began last night, and I never miss this show! Music, Dancing, what's not to love? With the exception of some of the outfits, it's one of the most family friendly shows out there! I love Dancing and I like watching the first episode especially when the cast is revealed. Usually I am really good at picking the first one to go and who will be the last 3 standing right from episode 1.

The thing I appreciate most though is watching the cast progress. Particularly the ones with no real/formal dance training. The ones who are really going outside of their comfort zones, learning something new! There is something exhilarating about going outside of our comfort zones. Tackling a new challenge, especially one we don't think we are necessarily ready for.

You'll see some will come out with enthusiasm and confidence, optimism or bravado, and others won't be as sure on their feet.

Attitude will determine altitude as sure as practice and discipline will. Today challenge yourself to try something outside your comfort zone. It could be anything, volunteer to be a project leader at work, at the PTA, at church. Try a recipe tonight you've never made. The challenge can be as big or small as you like. The rewards of stepping outside of your comfort zone include increased confidence, and who can't use more self-confidence?

Today's Words of Inspiration'
Use 'Today's Words of Inspiration' as a breathing meditation to still your mind, quiet your thoughts and bring in positive energy. As you inhale bring in only positive energy by saying in your mind, I breathe in positive energy (or you can say creative energy if that is what you wish to create more of) and as you exhale, Affirm out loud 'I step outside of my comfort zone and tackle new challenges with ease!'

Spend some time each day enjoying focused breathing AND soul guided meditative visualization, in doing so, you can bring about profound and powerful changes in your life.

Visualize yourself manifesting something unique, guided by universal forces that emerge spontaneously from within your soul. Do this at least twice today and see how by taking a moment away from the hectic pace and breathing in positive energy and affirming what you wish to create, your thinking will become different.

Remember, attitude really does determine altitude.

Vote Needed!

I am a finalist in Mom Central Consulting's 'Grow Your Personal Brand' Grant Program. I would love your vote, but I would also love for you to read my entry. My essay is entitled 'Project Chrysalis'. A project, which many of you know has already begun. The essay questions I was asked to answer really made me think, about my 'brand' and most importantly about my goals both personally and professionally. I hope reading my entry brings you inspiration! This is a DAILY, 1 click, no registration required vote request. You can vote by pressing the image below or HERE:

FTC Disclosure: I was not asked to write about Mom Central's Grant Program, nor does writing about it improve my chances. I feel the message they are sending by supporting bloggers efforts to grow their brand is an important and powerful one! I was also not asked to write about DWTS, I do watch the show each season and thought it was a great analogy!
