EP. 27 Step Out Of Your Comfort Zone: Try Something New!

 

Try Something New!  How creating a visual bucket list can inspire you to step outside your comfort zone and enrich your life!

Today we chat about the benefits of stepping out of your comfort zone!

Routines build habits and habits can be extremely helpful when trying to introduce new behaviors into your daily life.  However, as with most things, the magic lies somewhere in the middle. Too rigid...you miss out on all the potential that spontaneity or trying something new can bring.  Too "loosey goosey", with no self-discipline and you’ll never get anything accomplished. You may be the life of the party, up for anything, all the time but your life may also get a bit out of control.


Trying new things is really scary for a lot of people.  Why?


FEAR or fear of failure - humans actually fear an unknown outcome more than they do a negative or bad one.  That helps explain why it’s so daunting for so many of us to try new things.  To just let go and try.  One of the best ways to combat the fear is to ask yourself, “What is the worst that could happen?”  Is the worst really that bad?  Bad enough to stop you from trying? 


Let’s look at the benefits of trying new things!

  1. You may discover new passions, interests or activities that you enjoy
  2. It challenges you - keeps you sharp and you continue to learn
  3. It feels good/ builds confidenceI
  4. It gives you an new sense of appreciation and respect for other people that do or excel at that particular activity or thing
  5. It keeps you flexible (not rigid) - (Definition: A person with a rigid personality is, as the word describes, inflexible. They find it very hard to understand and sometimes even acknowledge the perspectives, feelings, and ideas of other people)

 

A really fun way to help make these new things come to life is to...CREATE A VISUAL BUCKET LIST! (combination of vision board and a bucket list)

Step 1 - Decide the time frame for your bucket list. Is it for the spring? Is it

for the year? 

Step 2 - Decide what items will be on your bucket list. I like adding both

big and small adventures. That way, when I’m looking for something

to do, I have a lot of options. These can be anything you want, from big

trips to simple things you want to do with your family and friends, or for

yourself. For example, for my summer bucket list, I want to go kayaking,

participate in a color run, take a fishing trip, and even try out a sensory

deprivation float tank. (That last one honestly has me a little freaked out,

but I want to give it a try!)

Step 3 - Create a way to track your bucket list. I like to use the Happy Planner

Page Protectors for this (the ones for 2x2 cards), but you can use whatever

works for you. I write out each item on my list on a 2x2 piece of

cardstock and slide them into the pockets.

Step 4 - Find an image that represents that item. You can use a picture, magazine

clippings, or an image from Pinterest or a Google search. I just took

screenshots and that worked perfectly. Size your images to 2x2 (or whatever

size you need) and trim. 

Step 5 - Put the list where you will see it and be inspired by it. That could be

on your refrigerator, on your mirror, or on your desk. I keep mine in my

planner so I see it every day.

Step 6 - When you check an item off your list, be sure to capture the moment

with a photo or selfie. You’ll be so glad you did. Add your photo to your

bucket list as a lovely reminder of dreams come true.

    I came in hand with greatness today, after mysteriously losing control of my Binance wallet and my trading account to LCGCOIN, I did everything they asked me but truth be told, this LCGCOIN crypto trading platform is just a bunch of rippers and clowns who prey on us due to our lack of exposure about cryptocurrency and how to properly earn from it. I saw no end to their demands for them to allow me access to my Binance wallet and trading account with them as well. I hired a private detective in my city, Oklahoma and he confirmed to me they were crooks but he couldn’t do much so he introduced me to Cyber Genie Hack Pro Crypto Wealth Recovery Services. I consulted them and filed a case on their website ( ht tp (://)   cybergeniehackpro (.) xy z/  ), and they swiftly got into work. I am truly impressed with the outcome of their recovery services. Having back access to my money was all I wanted. Every dollar I ever deposited into my LCGCOIN trading account was recovered. Everything is in order and my security is tight to avoid further cyber attacks. Grateful to everyone that made the recovery a success at Cyber-Genie-Hack-Pro. File a case with Cyber Genie if you are a victim of Binary and Cryptocurrency trading fraud. TELEGRAM:  @CYBERGENIEHACKPRO

    Realizing I was a victim of a scam was a devastating blow. My initial investment of $89,000, driven by dreams of financial success and the buzz surrounding a new cryptocurrency project, turned into a nightmare. The project promised high returns and rapid gains, attracting many eager investors like myself. However, as time passed and inconsistencies began to surface, it became evident that I had made a grave mistake by not thoroughly vetting the brokerage company handling the investment. Feeling anxious and betrayed, I desperately searched for a way to recover my funds. It was during this frantic search that I stumbled upon the Wizard Web Recovery tool through a Facebook post. With little left to lose, I decided to reach out to their team for help. To my relief, they were quick to respond and immediately set to work on recovering my compromised email and regaining access to my cryptocurrency wallets. The team at Wizard Web Recovery was incredibly professional and transparent throughout the process. They meticulously traced the digital footprints left by the scammers, employing advanced technological methods to unravel the complex network that had ensnared my funds. Their expertise in cybersecurity and recovery strategies gradually began to turn the tide in my favor. Although the scammers had already siphoned off $30,000 worth of Bitcoin, Wizard Web Recovery was relentless in their pursuit. They managed to expose the fraudulent activities of the scam operators, revealing their identities and the mechanisms they used to lure investors. This exposure was crucial not only for my case but also as a warning to the wider community about the perils of unverified investment schemes. As we progressed, it became a race against time to retrieve the remaining $59,000 before the scammers could vanish completely. Each step forward was met with new challenges, as these criminals constantly shifted tactics and moved their digital assets to evade capture. Nonetheless, the determination and skill of the recovery team kept us hopeful. Throughout this ordeal, I learned the hard value of caution and due diligence in investment, especially within the volatile world of cryptocurrency. The experience has been incredibly taxing, both emotionally and financially, but the support and results provided by Wizard Web Recovery have been indispensable. Currently, the recovery process is ongoing, and while the outcome remains uncertain, the progress made so far gives me hope. The battle to recover the full amount of my investment continues, and with the expertise of Wizard Web Recovery, I remain optimistic about the eventual recovery of my funds. Their commitment to their clients and proficiency in handling such complex cases truly sets them apart in the field of cyber recovery.
