To get somewhere you've never been, you have to do things you've never done.
You want to live boldly. Easier said than done, right?
We want it, but when the opportunities present themselves it’s easy to come up with reasons to keep doing the same old thing. Change can be scary and difficult sometimes, but it's the only way to get where you want to be.
Living boldly looks different for all of us, on the outside at least. However, there are a few mindset shifts we all have to make as we learn how to be bold and create the lives we really want to be living.
Being bold is about making intentional choices rather than slipping into the default patterns that got you to where you are now. This means you simply have to pay more attention when you have a decision to make, choosing what is going to get you closer to where you’d like to be rather than what’s easiest. This usually means you’ll have to step outside your comfort zone.
Every time we step choose courage over comfort, there’s some amount of fear or anxiety that shows up. We question ourselves, think of all the things that could go wrong, and agonize over what to do. Maybe you’ve tried something like this before and it didn’t work out. Maybe you’re trying something completely new and afraid because you don’t know what you’re doing. That’s okay! It’s normal.
Simply giving yourself permission to try is a powerful first step toward living boldly. Here are some other ways to help you get going toward that life you want!
