Why not go out on a limb? Isn't that where the fruit is?
Sometimes you have to stretch yourself beyond your comfort zone in order to get meaningful rewards. Often things that are the most valuable require effort, risk and action. If you are not willing to put yourself out to reach your goal, you are not very invested in your results. Sitting at the bottom of the tree and wishing the fruit would fall into your lap is not an effective way to get something that is important to you. All things DON'T come to those who wait. You have to take action. You have to stretch yourself. You have to put out the effort. And you sometimes have to take a risk. What are you willing to do to achieve your results?
This week: Take a look at something you really want. How much do you want it? Are you willing to take some action this week to move closer to having it? If you really went after it, what would you need to do? How would you do it? What risks would be involved? How can you minimize those risks? By answering these questions, you can put together a plan for reaching that goal. Then, step-by-step, inch-by-inch, you can begin to move toward it.
