“A comfort zone is a beautiful place, but nothing ever grows there.” – Unknown
Is a word I’m coining for 2018.
It’s all well and good that you and I jubilantly project butterflies and unicorns surrounding our new year goals when we create them in the midst of holiday joy and cheer.
It’s another thing when there’s no garland on the ceiling, no short work weeks to enjoy, and no lofty over-arching spirit of the season coloring our mood.
No. This is the time when the so-called rubber meets the road…and we face daily the [uggh!] and [eeek!] and [maybe later?] reactions that come from making those little and large changes.
Now, granted, it can all be accomplished in a spirit of play, making a game out of it all…and yet we can all use some empowering (vs forceful) context to take us over the hill of change.
My personal rallying charge is: De-comfy-fy!
What’s yours? What’s the anchoring statement, phrase or word that you can and will pull out when your rubber meets the road? And, who are you going to tell it to.
Find three people today to share your 2018 personal change charge with. Have them write it down…and beg them to put it in your face when you most need it.
