"We cannot become what we want to be by remaining what we are." Max DePree
Got the blahs?
Has your life lost its spark, its fire, its edge? Have your days become a little too boring, a little too dreary, a little too vanilla for your taste? Do you wish you could add some excitement, some energy, some SOMETHING to what you're seeing, doing and having right now?
Join the club.
Sometimes we get stuck in a rut; a rut that goes nowhere worth going. We have a tendency to get comfy. We move into a familiar routine. We keep things simple, we don't push the envelope. And, after awhile, we lose interest.
Since we're not having as much fun as we used to have, not doing all of the exciting things that we used to do, our lives become, well... boring, bland, just plain yucky. We didn't plan it that way. And we sure as heck don't want it that way. But that 'way' has become our way of life.
And we feel extraordinarily ordinary.
"This is no time for ease and comfort. It is time to dare and endure." Winston Churchill
Is this the way you want to go through life? Do you want to be trapped in a rut that saps your energy? Do you really want to be stuck in a rut that sucks the life right out of you? I hope not.
Sure, you can allow life to wear you down. You can cave to its pressures and problems. And you can kiss your future goodbye in the process. Or you can reclaim the magic you once knew. And uncover undiscovered treasures.
If you have ever wondered where the excitement and energy you once knew has gone - and wished you could get it back, you're in the right place. If you're ready to add some fire, some spice, some zest to your days, you're in the right place. If you have ever wanted to live life with a fiery verve that knows no bounds, you're in the right place.
Right here, right now, you can take the right steps - and reenergize your life.
"Find something that scares you - and then do it anyway." Bob Parsons
Want a little more excitement? Then get EXCITED about life. Not kind of excited or sort of excited mind you. That kind of lukewarm approach isn't going to cut it. You need to get cranked up... about where youre going, about what you're doing. And if what you're doing doesn't get you going, go do something else, anything else. And do it with enthusiasm. Do it with passion. Do it with a fiery fervor that won't go away. When you finally let loose and show some big-time emotion, you'll not only set the world around you on fire, you'll discover the excitement you seek! And a whole lot more.
Want a little more spice, a little more sizzle? Then get a little spicy. Get a little risky. Go a little crazy. in fact, don't get a little. GO GET A LOT. Roll the dice and take some chances. Chase your dreams. Pursue your passions. Stop holding back - and start living! And you'll be amazed at what you can accomplish.
Want a little more energy, a little more vigor; a little more get-up-and-go? Then get off of your duff and show some spunk, make some moves and make something happen. Push the limits. Go right to the edge. And then go beyond. Get daring, get bold and go get things you want in life.
"Think small and you'll stay small." Greg Hickman
Safe and sound may be OK for some folks, but not for you. You need to break free of that comfy zone and become what I call 'comfortably uncomfortable.' That means appreciating what you have, being grateful for what you've got - while still looking for ways to improve, looking to move forward and looking to make your life richer and more rewarding.
You've got to do something that pushes you well outside of that comfy zone; something new, something fresh, something altogether different from what you've been doing. And you've got to do it now.
Are you worried about making mistakes?
Are you scared of falling flat on your face?
Are you nervous about getting things wrong or messing things up?
Well here's my advice to you (whether you want it or not):
DO IT ANYWAY!
You need to venture out. You need to challenge yourself. You need to try something new, maybe even tackle something scary. You need to push past your doubts. You need to push past your fears. You need to push and push and push some more. And keep pushing. You might get hurt every now and then. You might even lose a battle or two along the way.
But somehow, some way, something unexpected is going to happen as long as you keep looking, keep working and keep believing. You're going to discover something truly special: the life you've been looking for.
The Bottom Line: Get rid of the bland and go get the great.
