5 Ideas to Increase Your Comfort Zone

Opportunities are not going to just show up inside your comfort zone. Opportunities are seized by those who learn how to step outside their circle of familiarity by taking risks. Risk taking requires intentionally putting yourself in positions of discomfort, which means you have to get comfortable with being uncomfortable.

Here are 5 practical tips to help you learn how to get comfortable with taking small risks, so you eventually can become more comfortable taking big ones…

Sandcastles of Success

I was recently searching Google and came across incredible images of sandcastle sculptures. I was amazed at these extraordinary works of art that people were able to literally carve out of dirt. You could definitely see they took a lot of care, concern, skills, time, energy, and effort to create something so amazing.

After admiring the sand masterpieces I began to think about how stable they were. How long could they stay there looking pristine and perfect? Because they were built on beaches by the ocean, if a big wave came all of these stunning structures would be wiped out… and all that work, time, energy, creativity, etc. would be washed away. The only things left would be a crumbled mess and nice memories of what used to be.

“…And everyone who hears these words of mine and does not do them will be like a foolish man who built his house on the sand. And the rain fell, and the floods came, and the winds blew and beat against that house, and it fell, and great was the fall of it.” ~ Matthew 7:26-27

It’s sad that many people build their lives like sandcastles. They look great on the outside. They invest a lot of money, time, blood, sweat, and tears to get a good job, big house, fame, fortune, and friends. Unfortunately they lack a genuine connection with God, have poor character, engage in poisonous relationships, and possess many other deficiencies that are hidden by their public image. They create a lifestyle that others want, but reject the character needed to sustain it.

Their success is constructed like a sandcastle. All it takes is one major life event and everything they have built up is gone in the blink of an eye. I believe the saying that “adversity doesn’t build character, it reveals it.” If they haven’t built their life on things that are deep-rooted, sustainable or long-lasting, what is left after they lose their fame, fortune, and so-called friends?

You can’t prevent the waves of life from coming, but you can prepare and protect yourself from them. Build your life on things that are sure and secure: a dynamic relationship with God, moral values, unquestionable character, integrity, genuine relationships, etc.

Many people will make a big splash in life, but aren’t around for the long-term. That doesn’t have to be you. You can be built to last.

Sweet dreams,
Paul Wilson, Jr.

10 for 10!

These days everyone has their list of the most memorable events,  people, products, etc. of the last year and decade. There’s also lists of predictions of what people think will happen in this coming year/decade. The only prediction I have is that if you do the same unproductive things in 2010 as you did in 2009, you will have the same unsatisfying results.

So here’s my list of 10 “ignition” items that will launch you to thrive in 2010…

  1. Love unconditionally
  2. Give passionately
  3. Serve selflessly
  4. Pray constantly
  5. Imagine incredibly
  6. Fight for those who can’t fight for themselves
  7. Communicate courageously
  8. Work purposefully
  9. Play joyfully
  10. Rest regularly

I’ll throw in a bonus #11 just for kicks…

11. Dream B.I.G. in 3D!

This list is a preview of a coming attraction. In February I will be initiating a 30 Day Dream B.I.G. Revolution for anyone who wants to see their life improve dramatically over the next 12 months. Stay tuned!

Get the B.I.G. Picture!

I purchased my first video camera earlier this year. Although I’m still an aspiring novice when it comes to videography, I’ve had a lot of fun learning the ins and outs of capturing inspiring moments on video. One elementary thing that I learned is that no matter how technologically advanced your camera is, if you are too close or too far away from your target, you will get a blurry picture. In order to bring the picture in proper focus, you have to adjust your distance and/or lens on the camera.

This is similar to the process of getting clarity for our lives. Clarity comes through understanding God’s B.I.G. (Bold, Innovative, God-Inspired) picture for us. What do I mean by that? Sometimes we make rash or impulsive decisions without having a good understanding of the short or long-term impact on other people and situations. Ask yourself the following questions:

Why am I alive?  What am I purposed to do? What is my vision of the future? Why do I do what I do? What goals have I developed for my life? Why did I choose those goals? What am I chasing and why? What will be my legacy?

If you can’t answer these questions confidently, I suggest you take some alone time with the One who created you and gave you purpose. Without God’s input, you can assume you’re making good decisions, but you could be missing some critical elements. His B.I.G. picture provides clarity for your direction and purpose in life by giving you a better perspective.

Putting Humpty Dumpty’s Brand Back Together Again

Humpty Dumpty sat on wall. Humpty Dumpty had a great fall. All the king’s horses and all the king’s men couldn’t put Humpty back together again.

We’re all familiar with this very old nursery rhyme. However, a modern day translation would probably sound something like this…

Professional athlete/politician/preacher/(fill in the blank) stood on top of the tall pedestal society put them on. That person fell off their pedestal, because they had a moral failure/made a mistake/let his family down, etc. All the publicists, brand coaches, agents, marketing gurus, and social media experts couldn’t put that person’s brand back to together again.

A person’s brand, i.e. reputation, is about as fragile as an egg shell. It takes a lot of time to nurture and develop that brand into something recognizable, valuable, and marketable. However, it’s not indestructible. If that person has a momentary (or on-going) character crisis, very quickly that brand can be shattered into a bunch of fragments, just like Humpty’s shell.

Proverbs 22:1 says, “A good name is more desirable than great riches; to be esteemed is better than silver or gold.” Once your brand has been shattered, it’s extremely hard to repair. Some would argue that after a major transgression one’s reputation can never be fully restored to where it once was.

An ounce of prevention is better than a pound of cure. The best brand repair strategy is prevention through character development. If you don’t have the character to handle being on the pedestal, be careful how high you want to go, because if you fall it will be extremely difficult to put back together all of your pieces.

Find Your Best F.I.T.!

heart test - fitnessIt’s often easy to assess our level of physical health. There’s plenty of tests we can take to provide us with information that will give us a good picture of our overall wellness. Likewise, we can analyze our bank accounts, cash flow, and debt levels to determine if we are financially fit.

However, when it comes to our professional pursuits, it’s a little harder to determine if our careers are healthy. Here’s a quick “F.I.T.ness” test that may reveal if the things you are pursuing from a career or entrepreneurship standpoint are worth your time and investment:

F – Future focus: Do you career pursuits align with your life purpose? Are they getting you closer to accomplishing your short and long-term goals?

I – Intense interests: Will your career pursuits fully integrate and leverage your passions?

T – Top talents: Are your pursuits going to leverage what you do the best? Are these pursuits going to help you become the best at what you do?

Sometimes it’s easy to follow paths that seem great, because they have worked out for other people. However, that doesn’t automatically mean those paths are the right F.I.T. for you. Just because something is right for someone else, doesn’t make it right for you. Your best life path will F.I.T. you specifically.

Everything that looks good isn’t good for you. Make sure that everything into which you invest your time, talents, and treasures is purpose-driven, passion-pointed, and profitable!
