In order to get your Verb back you must be willing to step outside of your comfort zone. With each step forward you will discover more about the world and yourself. You will feel more connected and confident that you can do anything. It can seem hard, but the reality is, it’s a lot easier than you think. And while there might be some challenges, the benefits outweigh the disadvantages.
Here are 3 easy steps to get you started :
Step 1: Say yes! Opportunity is knocking. Will you answer? Too often the answer is “no.” There’s always a good excuse – not enough money, not enough time, and a host of others. How do you get beyond this point? Stop over thinking and be spontaneous and say “yes” to living life. This doesn’t mean to become a doormat. The keyword here is “opportunity.” An opportunity to step out of your day dreams and into a world of circumstances that will help you live your best life.
Step 2: Ditch the fear. The main reason we hesitate is because deep down we’re afraid. So when you find yourself wavering toward that “no” the next most logical thing to do is to ask yourself “why not.” What you’re going to find out is that every reason tends to come back to your fears. Your fear of rejection, being taking advantage of, criticism or safety. Trying new things can be a double edge sword. But it will help you face your fears. Once you understand your fear, you can take steps to resolve it.
*As a side note, some fears might require professional help. Don’t be afraid to ask for help in working through the more difficult stuff.
Step 3: Find the excitement. Instead of focusing on the scary part of stepping outside your comfort zone, look forward to the excitement of trying something new or getting to know someone new. A positive view of things will overshadow excuses that would prevent you from answering the doors to “opportunity.”
With these three steps, you’re ready to go out into the world and get your Verb back.
Live, Love, Laugh and REPEAT!
