Stretching beyond my comfort zone has proven to be almost a magic formula for creating results. I think that moving into our fear zone demonstrates our commitment, our willingness to risk, and that elicits a vote of confidence from the universe. We have to show we really mean it – and then things start to line up.
So much of my life I was waiting for the universe to move first. Or for some other kind of proof or guarantee, before I would step forward and take a chance.
And the first few times I stepped beyond my prior limits were pretty terrifying.
But as I’ve noticed how often life has come to meet me “more than half way,” stretching has become exciting, exhilarating, a pleasure in itself. It’s now something I look forward to.
One thing’s for sure, though – It really helps to stay flexible!
