Staying in your comfort zone has the benefit of being familiar and habitual. You know what to expect and there are few surprises.
Taking a risk takes you out of your comfort zone and challenges you to face difficult feelings and uncertainty.
But when you move past the discomfort, you are able to make new discoveries and accomplish the things you previously dreamed about.
You become more creative, learn new skills, overcome fear of failure, trust the process of life, increase your self-confidence, challenge your self-induced limits, see opportunities everywhere, and pursue what you really want.
Expectations are a tricky thing. While you have to plan and work toward what you want, you also have to be flexible and adaptable.
Expect too much, and you will get too little. Expect too little, and you will get even less. It is when you maintain a balance between high and low expectations that you will get the greatest results.
Have you ever looked for something only to discover it was right there in front of you? Sometimes the obvious is not so obvious, because there are distractions and obfuscations in the way.
The distractions and obfuscations may be in your environment or in your own thoughts. Either way, they keep you from finding what you want.
Let go of interferences and diversions, and you will see that there are no secrets.
The teachings of the universe are hidden in plain sight.
Modern society offers us disconnected experiences in most areas of life. There is a great sense of separateness between the various social strata, institutions, and social issues.
But everything is connected and has an influence on each other. So how do we tap into and exercise this natural wholeness?
The mystery is that there is no mystery. The answers are everywhere.
Everything you experience is a particle of energy in the timeline of your life. The people, places, and things we interact with are all parts of the puzzle of existence.
Each piece has an influence on the other pieces. There is a link between the various things we do and create.
How well does your life and career network function? How do you connect the dots?
Each day is filled with various tasks to fulfill. Of course, 10,000 things is an exaggeration, but it often feels like it is that much. And it can be overwhelming if you let it be.
The way to accomplish your tasks is to keep a pace that works for you and use a format that works for you.
Other people can offer suggestions on how to get things done, but, ultimately, you have your own style. Figure that out, and you have it made.
The feeling of stress can build up quickly if it is not alleviated quickly. It starts with some kind of frustration, anger, or defense. Then it affects your body.
If you hold on to it, it interferes with your life. If you release it, you have health and well-being.
How do you do this? Easy. Notice it now, breath, and let go.
