The Difference Between Braving Outside Your Comfort Zone & Scaring the Bajeebers Out of Yourself

Goal Setting.



Everything you want is outside of your comfort zone.

How does that make you feel?

Freaked out? Confident to take on the world and make this your year?

Well, I’ll tell ya. I wanted to have nothing to do with all this motivational mumbo jumbo. I quite frankly love being comfy. I also do not see anything wrong with that.

These blanket statements about success often deflate people before they can even get started.

How long can you force yourself outside of your comfort zone?

How long do the diets last, the workout plans, the meditation routine, the reading books schedule, the self-study courses slowly taking up all the memory on your computer but not actually being applied to your life.

Sound familiar?

You are not alone.

We are humans. Humans don’t want to be scared. We actually will do anything we can to get out of mental, emotional, or physical stress.

It never motivated me to be constantly scared. And maybe you are feeling some relief in knowing you are not the only one.

What does motivate me now, is consistency and focus.

When we set out to force ourselves into submission in order to achieve a goal, sometimes it backfires. The inner child has a tantrum inside and runs amuck in your life hijacking all your best laid plans.

What if you could be gentle and kind to yourself, and be a badass?

What if you knew the right level of growth edge to stretch, but not break yourself?

Here’s what I discovered.

There are 2 types of stress.

Healthy stress

This is the stress that creates change. Much like lifting weights. You actually are causing micro tears in the muscle, that’s why they get sore, in order to build muscle and strength. Over time and with consistency, your entire physique can transform.

Unhealthy stress

This type of stress is toxic. Too much emotional stress causes cortisol in the system which then causes all sorts of problems. Small sprints of stress actually creates resilience, confidence and tenacity. For some reason, North Americans seem to think this drudgery, slogging, hours- worked and elbow grease applied mania of “busy” is the key to success and happiness. Newsflash, NO. No it is not. Let’s stop now.

What does work?

Again. I will consistently say consistency works just to prove my point. You will most likely remember it better after reading this article because I repeated it more than once. I also added the word focus as an important piece, because we need to know why we are being consistent in the first place, or we will simply drift off into mindless, passive oblivion.

What works is deciding the thing you want to improve. Then giving yourself double or triple the time to actually do it. No fast action special pill works. Let the myth go, stop looking. Trust me.

What works is when you focus on 1-3 things, doing simple things daily weekly and monthly. Until a year passes and you can actually look back and see the ups and downs and spirals it takes for every human being to transform. Not just change things, but sustainably transform.

So stop scaring yourself with BIG goals.

Have a big vision, and create boring little goals that feel too insignificant to post on social media.

I dare you.

Then see how good it feels to not be so friggin’ freaked out all the time by the measurements you set out for yourself for goals that are not attainable in a consistent, permanent way. Instead, clearly decide what you want to shift or change, and set out to be bored and consistent. Somedays you will stretch outside your comfort zone, others will feel easy. Let this rhythm guide you ease + stress, ease + stress the ebb and flow is you returning to your Nature, and this power will support you in all you set out to do.

COVID Q & A with Dr. Peter McCullough #14

COVID Q & A with Dr. Peter McCullough #14

Can Dr. McCullough, talk more about pericarditis? Everyone mentions myocarditis, but there are never any statistics mentioned for pericarditis. In Australia, there are twice as many reports of pericarditis than myocarditis from vaccines. What are the dangers of having Covid naturally and then getting vaccinated? Wasn’t there a thought that you should not get vaccinated for 90 days after having Covid?

Hunter Biden, Paul Pelosi Jr. and A Swamp of Thieves

Hunter Biden was earning an $80,000 monthly salary from the Ukrainian energy company and why he concocted a billion-dollar deal with a Chinese investment firm, 10% of all earnings of which were destined for the coffers of the family’s mob boss, Joe Biden himself.

Global Failure of Public Health on Pandemic Response

Global Failure of Public Health on Pandemic Response

PM Boris Johnson announced that his country is to move into mitigated COVID restrictions, dropping the legal requirement for face masks and COVID passports. Meanwhile, the European Union drug regulators warned frequent COVID boosters could adversely affect the immune system. While both of these developments are not declaring an end to mass vaccination, they are setting the framework to announce a…

The China Virus Game of Funding Cover-Up

The China Virus Game of Funding Cover-Up

A close examination of the newly unredacted emails reveals that none of the usual justifications for redactions, such as private information about people or threats to sources and methods, apply. All appear to have been made solely to shield Fauci and the NIH from scrutiny over its cover-up of the virus’ origins. Also involved in the obfuscation effort were Fauci’s boss, recently retired NIH Dir Dr. Francis Collins…

This Week In COVID: Hospitals, Please Stop Killing Our Loved Ones!

This Week In COVID: Hospitals, Please Stop Killing Our Loved Ones!

Patients never have the same doctor or nurse 2 days in a row. Family advocates STILL aren’t allowed to be bedside. The ‘Science’ isn’t being followed, but the ‘Money’ is being chased after. Doctors aren’t THINKING, they are OBEYING. One-size-fits-all does NOT work for high-risk patients or any patients. If you agree this is wrong, help us fight for what’s right…

The Questionable Merger of a Global Reverse Biotechnology Corporation

The Questionable Merger of a Global Reverse Biotechnology Corporation

The former corporation of Senomyx, once headquartered out of La Jolla, California, allegedly used aborted Fetal cells in its food and beverage products while in collaboration with some of the world’s largest leading food and beverage corporations. It’s up to us as individuals to do our own research and question everything about anything, right down to the ingredients in the fragrances and beauty products we purchase…

Why Ukraine Matters to America

Why Ukraine Matters to America

Putin was severely stung by the collapse of the Soviet Union and what he perceived as gloating on the part of American politicians and others in the West. Putin set it as his primary goal to get payback for what he viewed as the insults that were levied against Mother Russia. I recall at the time commenting that we needed to tone it down…

England’s COVID Liberation: Real or Ruse?

England’s COVID Liberation: Real or Ruse?

Prime Minister Boris Johnson’s sudden change of direction leaves one to wonder if he is genuine in his thoughts and motives. Has he finally figured out that masking, isolation, jabs, and distancing never availed us any good? Probably not. Johnson has endured increasing pressure to resign due to his cultic mandates. Being freed from vaccine passports, mask mandates, classroom restrictions, isolation…

Anthony Fauci’s Rules: The Rule of Two

Anthony Fauci’s Rules: The Rule of Two

We are not in a pandemic anymore, but Fauci told us just the other day – and repeated the following day – that though Omicron may be mild, that does NOT mean we can relax restrictions, so like the Little Engine that Could (Not), we just keep chugging up the mountain, knowing we will never reach the top. The Biden Administration, in the meantime, tells us to grow up and manage our expectations…

Flip-flop Joe Must Stay the Course on Off-shore Drilling

Just before holding the lease auction, the Biden administration said the lawsuit did force them to make the oil leases in the Gulf. Now, flip-flop Joe’s administration says they did not have to go ahead with the lease auctions. In response, the environmental group Earthjustice launched a lawsuit on December 3rd to halt the leases before they come into effect in…
