Are You Living in Flatlands?
“If I’m not living on the edge,
I’m taking up way to much room.”
– my Coach and Mentor
If you only see what you know, how do we ever see what we don’t know? There are so many mysteries and wonders about our world, which we yet still do not know. There are also still many dreams within us that still haven’t been realized.
At one time people thought the earth was flat and that we would fall off it, if we travelled to its edge. Of course, now we know this is not true. But are we still living in a sort of flat land? What I mean is, we put limits on ourselves on what we believe we can do or can’t do. How do we venture out of the box we have put ourselves in? Well, you have to become it to know it. We have to step out of our boxes with a leap of faith and courage to explore the possibilities of who we can become.
At one time people thought that it was impossible to run a mile in less than 4 minutes. Then in 1954 Roger Bannister shattered that belief. Since then it has been broken many times. What is it that you really want to do, but afraid to? A few years back I always wanted to go to the Amazon jungle in Peru and be guided by a Shaman. My friends and family thought that I was crazy to venture out alone to a place I have never been to. But it was a calling I had to fulfill and I am so happy that I listened to my intuition and did it! I grew by leaps and bounds! (The details of that adventure are for another time.) Helen Keller once said “Life should be a glorious adventure or nothing at all.”
I believe you always need someone to assist you in stepping outside of your comfort zone to explore the possibilities of what you can become. An empowerment coach becomes your best advocate and encourages you to realize that whatever it is you desire you can become it. So step out of your flatlands and discover a brave new world.
Isn’t it interesting that what we are most afraid of thrills us the most?
So step out of your flatlands…
