It’s easy to get stuck from time to time. It may be the daily grind at work, commuter traffic as you come home, or the same old, same old for dinner you always have on hand. We all get ‘stuck’ in our lifestyle from time to time. However, we remain stuck because we don’t want to fail, lose out, or run the risk of rejection. That’s why you need today—Take a Chance Day—to give yourself permission to say goodbye to what you know and walk straight towards the unknown.
Are you ready to shake some things up?
Do you want to boost your confidence and look amazing in the skin you’re in? Then prepare yourself…because when you learn to give yourself a chance by stepping out of your comfort zone (and truly take a chance on something new and different) you’ll find a new ‘you’ ready to take on those curveballs that come flying!
Read All About It…
When you feel stuck, view it as feelings of boredom and complacency, or the ‘nudge’ you need to move, to think differently, and to change up what’s no longer working in your life. For example, if you’ve struggled to lose weight, poor eating habits may be to blame. Succeed by stepping up and loading up the veggies on your plate while passing on dessert (instead of pitying your slow metabolism or genetics). Not feeling so great about the skin you’re in and desperate to look at yourself in the mirror and confidently say “I look sexy!”? Take a chance on yourself…and FOR yourself…by stepping outside of your comfort zone and taking action.
If you want toned arms, look into lifting weights (I know a guy who could help;-)). If you want to be self-employed, start planning a different career path that will allow you to build a business of your own (something I took a HUGE chance on a years ago). The world is your weight room… exercise the parts of your life you want to change.
All It Takes is One New Choice (in Order to Make Everything Change in Your Life)!
Spend today doing one thing that scares you, intimidates you, or makes you feel downright self-conscious. Pay for a legit workout session, eat a plate of healthy food you wouldn’t normally choose, or just start following a blog that will teach you healthy living habits to nourish you instead of bring you down.
Are you lacking energy?
To perform at your best (and live life at an optimal level), you need to treat your body right. It’s the cardinal rule. It’s the yellow brick road. It’s your golden ticket (insert your own cliché here if you’d like!) to a life you deserve to have—because if you’re not changing things up and stepping outside of your comfort zone from time to time, how can you expect anything else to change in your life?
When you want things to change in your life…stop arriving to work late, biting your nails, eating processed foods, picking the ‘wrong’ romantic partner to be in a relationship with, sacrificing your daily exercise for TV watching…you have to take a chance. Otherwise, you’ll continue to produce the same results as you always have. It’s madness. In fact, it’s the definition of insanity—which is continuing to do the same thing while expecting different results.
Go ahead. Take a chance.
Make TODAY the day you give yourself a chance and take a chance. Take just one step towards a healthier, happier life, and odds are everything else you want will begin to move towards you as well. Obstacles will plow out of your way. Opportunities will come into focus. When you step out of your comfort zone just a tiny bit, the body you want, the good health you seek, and even the ‘sexy you’ you want to bring back will all unfurl and come into fruition.
Take a chance on yourself today, then keep that momentum moving forward.
Get the Health You’ve Always Wanted
You didn’t hit your prime when you were 20-something with your whole life ahead of you. It’s happening right here and right now. What’s to come is up to you. Your mind calls the shots, and your body is a representation of how you think, feel, and act. Spend today (and every day) choosing to take a chance on yourself.
What you will find will surprise you, because once you step out of your comfort zone and take a chance on something new and unfamiliar, you may wonder what took you so long to get here!
In honor of Take a Chance Day, begin by asking yourself:
No matter how long it may take or how impossible it may seem to achieve, you deserve to give yourself the chance to find out what lies beyond. Take just one first step that’s different from your ‘usual’, and then keep going. This is your day—Take a Chance Day—so give it all you got. You’ll be amazed at what unfolds!
