100,000 Rewards from stepping out of my box
I am sitting here realizing that we must step out of our box to really achieve the big rewards that we want.
Stepping out of my comfort box 100,000 points ago meant facing many fears and obstacles.
- I did not know how to write a blog.
- Writing is NOT my strength
- I didn't have anything to say that people would care about.
- What if i write a blog and no one comments. You know like having a birthday party and no one shows up.
I took that step regardless of my fears and obstacles! Yes I was shaking and nervous. Yes I hoovered around in case i needed to delete my first blog. But I didn't!
Today I receive another big reward from stepping out of my box!
Tomorrow I will step out of my comfort box again-
I will sit in front of a microphone to co host a new business talk show on a FM radio station WHNW 95.7 the choice in Asheville NC. My fears and obstacles are just as real on this step as when I started blogging on Active Rain.
- Radio? I have a phone voice that makes people ask to speak to my mother
- Sometimes the word in my head isn't what my fingers type. Will my mouth say the wrong word?
- What if people don't want to listen to us?
- What if no one listens?
The business knowledge in not a fear with over 30 years of experience creating, building, guiding and over seeing corporations and businesses but the above fears and obstacles are real!
Stepping Jumping out of my non blogging comfort box has brought many rewards and memories. Such rewards as new friends, proud moments, moments where all i could do was laugh at myself, and the knowledge that I will survive. But one of the best rewards from that jump is reaching the 100,000 mark with this blog! Cheers, clapping and rah rah rahs are playing in my head as I type this.
Tomorrow I will sit in front of that microphone remembering this lesson . Jumping out of my box brings many rewards. I know I have jumped before, I Can Do It! !!!
