Rise and shine! Hoping that this quote from essayist and philosopher Ralph Waldo Emerson gives you the kick in the tail that you need this morning. Even though it’s a day off for a lot of us, I’m rested and ready to get back to work. Here’s that #MondayMotivation!
This quote is very timely for me as I enter into a new phase in my life. I’m 30 now. I start a new promotion tomorrow. I’m getting more into investments. I’m making some changes in my personal life. Everything’s changing…and I’m scared to death. That’s partly how I know that I’m heading in the right direction.
The things that we’re afraid to do are typically the things that are going to challenge us and make us better. They push us out of what has become a comfort zone and make us reach higher and do better.
I know I’ve done so much in the past few years alone, but now, it’s time to stretch even further. Even though I’m scared of how things are going to turn out. However, I know that I’d rather try my hand at new things than get lax and stuck in a spot I’m not meant to be in.
As I challenge myself, I challenge you all to stretch. Go after that thing that makes you nervous. Push yourself out of your comfort zone, one step at a time. I believe in my heart that it will be worth it.
