Have you ever stepped right outside your comfort zone?
That feeling of nerves and excitement all at once that gets the adrenalin pumping, you don’t know what’s going to happen but the anticipation is immense. But by putting yourself in a situation that pushes you a little each time, we grow as individuals, internally and externally, for ourselves, for our families and for our friends. It can only make us richer.
Heading outside of your comfort zone doesn’t have to mean doing your best 007 James Bond impression and abseil down the tallest building or facing your fear of spiders, although both for me would definitely put me to the test; it can be just the smallest everyday thing, and for me that’s hearing my voice.
However, the last couple of months with work and filming with clients have put me in positions where I’ve had to step in at times and put myself on the other side of the camera and hear my voice. The elation after it’s done and seeing the end product has given me confidence and I’ve grown…
So, with my new found confidence, guess what I did… I launched a YouTube channel! You might have already seen my cookbook review?
Yes, I’m still not 100% comfortable seeing or hearing myself on camera and I don’t think I’ll ever be. But do you know what, it doesn’t matter. Why? Because what those little steps have given me now is far more than I’d ever get, the confidence to love me for who I am now! I know that I’m not everyone’s cuppa tea but I wonder how many times they’ve gone outside of the comfort zone.
