an excerpt from my forthcoming book Shift Into High Gear
The doors are open, what's stopping you? Step out, step up to who you are!
Yes, it's that simple, for you to be what you want to BE. But first you got to find the door, the doors are always open, if you find a closed door, or a block in the road know that it's you who's blocking your roads and locking yourself inside, and you may be surprised to know that you always hold the keys within you; You got everything you need within you, all your tools, solutions and answers are within. All you have to do is look.
Found your door, Step out, Now!
Much as we may wish to make a new beginning, some part of us resists doing so as though we were making the first step towards disaster. – William Bridges
You may feel scared about taking the first step on a new path. At some point, we all do. Starting a new career, ending a comfortable relationship, moving on after a death…all of these can be frightening things to deal with. In life, you must be willing to take risks. Although that first step can be the most frightening, most of the time it is the most rewarding. It is the step that can launch you into success. Into the life you always wanted.
Even if you are afraid, do it anyway! risk it…and take that step you’ve been scared of. Step Out.
By searching, you have already made the decision, by stepping out, you explore options and push against comfort zones, and actually taking action towards your goals, It's time to step up to who you are.
Stepping up to be who you are, is taking charge of your life, taking responsibility for your life, for what you want and following through with a second step, and another and another. Until your reality becomes your very own living dream.
Shift into high gear and May you live every day of your life.
