A friend of mine posted this recently on Instagram. I let the statement roll around in my mind for a while.
Usually the word safe is linked with security. While it is good to be safe and secure physically, it other aspects of your life, it can be a lead weight that stagnates your personal growth.
Safe can be financially responsible. However, it can create a chokehold on increasing your growth.
Safe is staying exactly where you are, doing the exact same thing you’ve always done. However, if you want to grow personally and financially, you have to get out of the comfort, safe, zone and explore! You have to take chances and ask the hard questions, get over the fear and jump!
Tomorrow is my last day to work in the water industry. This is an industry that I’ve grown up in, literally working for my mom during high school, while paid in clothes. Then starting, officially, as a 19 year old college student in the office as a file clerk. I worked my way up while earning a college degree, to several positions of leadership. After 24 years, I will say good bye to an industry that has taken care of me and my family. All for what? To jump off into the unknown. All for the potential of exponential growth. More growth than I could ever achieve in the water industry.
Determination is what will drive me. Hard work is what I will do to make my dreams come true. Determined hustle is what I will focus on to crawl my way out of the comfort zone. I truly believe the results will speak for themselves and will make the journey worth it!
I’m tired of settling for safe. I want more! I want to do more! I want to help more! I want to be more! Just watch!
