Life Is Forever Changing… Are You Changing With It?

Today I want to share something very dear and close to my heart. A message that incorporates a more personal experience for myself and will allow you to truly step out of your ‘comfort zone’. What hindered my success for years was not allowing myself to change with life. To go with the flow and truly have FAITH and utter KNOWING that I could achieve anything I put my mind and most of all heart into.

The second I stopped allowing fear to stop me and actually started flowing with the evolving change in life… doors started opening that truly would have been unattainable in my mind years back when I started my entrepreneur journey. I allowed my FAITH to take over, my being.. my deeper intent and self-awareness… and truly the minute I stepped into my fears that is when peace, happiness and success started heading my way.

As humans we have this thing called fear… and as humans most of us RUN as fast as we can away from that fear. Away from the unkown… away from change. If we truly got down to the nitty gritty of fear itself we would realize it is right where we need to step into. It is ultimately our saving grace to achieving true awareness, abundance and success in our life…

Here is my short but inspiring message to you on stepping into your fears and changing with life…

Really… take just a few minutes RIGHT NOW and delve deep into your ultimate fears… what is holding you back? What are you truly afraid of? What scares the living crap out of you? What part of your life is changing that you seem to not want to flow along with? What person, experience or circumstance are you allowing to create fear in your life?

Truly take this time to find those fears, find those changes in your life and STEP INTO THEM. For once don’t think with your mind… allow your faith and being to take over. Have complete and UTTER faith that the choice you make, the fear you step into, the change you accept or take on is going to be exactly what it needs to be to give you the next step to your purpose in life.

Please share below what fear you are stepping into or anything happening with in your life that you feel you are ready to accept? How maybe your life has changed and how you have changed along with it? In all essence we would love to really hear from you on how you feel about this, any feedback and really where your heart lies at this point in your journey.

In addition, if you felt this encouraged, inspired or truly helped you in anyway please pass it along to any of your Facebook, Twitter or social media communities out there online. This message needs to reach as many as possible to ensure that goals and dreams… that true purpose starts becoming a reality in all lives.

Hi Jenn,

This is a fabulous message that people need to here. For so long i’ve hidden myself away but wanting to have my own home based business means I have to put myself ‘out there’ and boy is that uncomfortable for me but I know there is no other way.

In fact, being uncomfortable is what feels right even though I often want to run and hide but then if I do that, the discomfort of not growing will be that much stronger so that’s a big no no!

Great post :)

@Denise Any type of success inquires putting yourself out there. I think many get lost in the idea of hiding behind things that they hinder themselves from success. Success in all aspects of life lies in fear… that is where we must step into! You are right on girl… the discomfort of not growing is 100% worse than stepping into fear.

Roz 4:29 am - 15th September:

Man this is a great reminder! I have to admit that I’m INCREDIBLY fortunate in this aspect as my personality is very “Go with the flow” so when new things come up it’s not hard for me to just do it. Rather my issue is getting hung up on the little things which sometimes does not propel me forward (as you most definitely know lol).

So that is a constant work in progress for me, but what you talked about today is something that I am going to do a post on because I recently saw this in action between my Grandmother and someone else I knew…one took action and accepted changes and the other did not. It’s funny how both of their lives are drastically different.

Anyway, great post today! Great way to start off the morning!

Sye Wells 6:47 am - 15th September:

Hey Jenn! I received so much value as I listened to your heartfelt video message today. The comfort zone… is sooo comfortable, and the truth is.. it will lead to being broke, frustrated, sick, and tired. Right? I have experienced the invisible wall of fear a few times in life. The first time was when I was laid off, 3 months after my son was born. I was completely led by faith, and an unstoppable desire to not fail. My little guy, didn’t care about my comfort zone. I tell you, children, in my opinion have a way of shining a big mirror in front of you that will not allow for much time in the “comfort zone”. Personal development, accountability partners, prayer, and massive action is what it takes (for me at least), to get to the other side of “fear”….

Life is great!

@Sye You are so very right girl! It can lead to so many negative circumstances and experiences. Is truly worth it to stay in a comfort zone.. not by a long shot! In the long run it will hinder us from truly living life and achieving prosperity through the countless possibilities we have! Thanks for the awesome feedback!

Scott Ewart 7:09 am - 15th September:

Hi Jenn, this was a great post and video message. What made me push forward into entrepreneurship was letting go of fear. First realizing that it was OK to have fear, but then pushing it aside and overcoming them. Your message is inspirational to everyone – thanks for sharing!

Angela 8:51 am - 15th September:

Hey Jenn! This is a great post. I agree with you so much that life is always changing and you have to change with it. You don’t get far or come to success if you can’t accept change. I like your point about stepping into fear and that is where success is. Sometimes you just have to get out of your comfort zone. Thanks for sharing this!

@Angela Thank you! Comfort zones ultimately are just bad habits… stepping into fears is creating a good habit out of a bad habit. :) Thanks for the great feedback girl!

Atmara 9:31 am - 15th September:

I Love your phrase “step into”. Having dealt with a lot of fear all my life, early on I learned ways of “pushing it aside” and doing what had to be done. But that is stressful for the body and eventually catches up with you. There is a different energy to “stepping into”. It’s an acknowledgement and a welcoming in of the fear. “OK, fear, we are here together and let’s just do this thing we’re afraid of and see what happens.” It’s something I’m playing with in my life. Maybe it will be helpful to some of your readers.
Blessings,
Atmara

@Atmara Thank you! I truly feel it is not only facing but ultimately stepping into… embracing and accepting. You are absolutely right… it definitely is stressful for the body and will catch up to you. Acceptance is necessary to be able to step into fear, face it and overcome it. Embracing it is the key to cultivating it into positive energy and outcome. Thanks for the awesome contribution!

Nate Holland 11:29 am - 15th September:

Good advice, Jenn. You can’t really grow unless you accept and embrace change. And like Sye says, the comfort zone will indeed lead to financial problems, frustration, etc. I’ve been there myself.

BTW, I love the “dream” on your wall. Very cool!

Gail Foley 2:52 pm - 15th September:

Hi Jennifer,

I like your style and how you express yourself! Some people are literally terrified and paralyzed by change. And then there are some of us that need to embrace where we are before we make another change! LOL And yes you have to get out of your comfort zone to continuously succeed. Mark Yarnell talks about contentment as a very bad place to stay…

With a big smile and appreciation for a great post.

Michael Stead 7:05 pm - 15th September:

Hey Jenn,

Excellent post! What you talked about here is truly the key to having success in our lives because if you aren’t willing to change and keep up with where the world is going, you will simply get left behind and will continue to operate on old ideas.

The truth is we have SO MUCH freaking opportunity at our fingertips right now it is absolutely ridiculous. It really bugs the crap out of me when people complain about this whole feeling of “information overload”. When you really think about it, they are complaining because there is so much opportunity out there and countless ways to make money and they are getting overwhelmed because of this?

Give me a freaking break…they should feel so damn grateful that they even have those opportunities in the first place. Over 80% of our world today lives in total poverty yet we don’t stop and think about how lucky we truly are that we have a roof over our heads, get three meals a day, and have access to things like the internet.

Sorry I know I went on a little bit of a rant here but I just needed to get this off my chest and I felt it needed to be said. Great blog post and great video! Keep up the good work :)

See you at the top,
Michael Stead

Nat 4:32 am - 16th September:

Hey Jenn

I don’t think I have a comfort zone anymore, my business and life is in constant change and moving so quickly that I haven’t had time to find my comfort zone or get too comfortable with anything. I think that is because I have at some stage pushed past my fear and now I’m just going with the flow and making things happen, I know the universe is going to deliver on anything I want if I keep focused and in action!

@Nat I personally have them from time to time. Sometimes we do not realize they are there but once we do it is important to take action steps towards stepping into them. When things are moving quickly that is the most beneficial transition to becoming a fear taker… as you do not have the time to focus on any fear that comes into play! :) Great feedback girl!

Erika Olson 1:42 pm - 16th September:

Jenn,
You’re SO RIGHT, and I believe the very same things. Many years ago I didn’t realize what variety and all of the possibilities that were at my fingertips if I just stepped out of my box and changed things.
It’s amazing what you can do, and what is available to you, if you just TRY and go for it. I could go on, because people are afraid of change, but really there is NOTHING to be afraid of. It’s just a new journey!

@Erika I definitely feel that once we are open to stepping into fear and the unknown that is when we realize all the amazing possibilities just waiting for us. Door after door opens and we become a magnet for exactly what we want. Thanks for the wonderful feedback! :)

Oliver Tausend 3:17 am - 17th September:

Hi Jennifer,

I always cringe when I hear the word “comfort zone”. I don’t think that it’s really comfortable there. We know that we need to act but we don’t do so. That causes discomfort, doesn’t it ? I would rather say that the comfort zone is a “habit zone”, a “bad habit zone” indeed.

Together with this little semantic distinction, I fully agree with your message.

Thanks for sharing.

Take care

Oliver

Brenda Freeman 2:25 am - 19th September:

Change is good – it is not something to be afraid of. Stepping into the unknown is a must if you want changes in your life. Be open to making your life the way you want it to be – no hoping, no wishing…but doing.

A little fear is good – it gets the adrenalin going, and makes the change that much more exciting.

Gina Mortenson 8:56 am - 19th September:

Hi Jenn!
Love this post and so timely for me! I have recently started a new venture and, in order to share my opportunity, must “step into areas that bring me fear and get out of my comfort zone.” (Quoting you:)) I don’t want to be in my golden years saying woulda, shoulda, coulda! Starting today I am going to take that chance and be willing to step into the unknown and TAKE ON LIFE!
Thanks so much for sharing…you are fabulous!

Jennifer May Reply:

@Gina You are awesome for sharing your most recent experience… that is one of the largest fears network marketers have, is to step into a new opportunity, a new venture but what is amazing is once we do we open doors to so much more. Just being willing to take that initial step is the most important part. Thanks for the great contribution girl!

It’s hard to step outside our comfort zones but when we do the results are well worth it :-)

Delicia Jenkins 6:02 pm - 22nd September:

Jenn as always you share real value with those of us who follow your blog posts. Nike couldn’t have said it better. “Just Do It” How do you know unless you try. Once you’ve faced your fears and left them behind you there’s this ultimate feeling beyond explanation that makes you feel wonderful. I’ll admit that I still have fears as we all do, but this post is just a reminder that we must face them or we’ll always be a little too comfortable for our own good.

@Delicia Thanks girl! You are absolutely right… Nike has one of the best slogans! We all have fears but the more you grow into self-awareness and consciousness these fears become small grains of sand. They do not seem at all as so much fears anymore but ultimately exactly where you want to step into. Happy to be the reminder to face fears and stay consistent!

Kantrese Smith 11:54 pm - 24th September:

Hey Jenn! Get Excited & Stay Excited!

Well don’t I know all so well about having to step out of comfort zones! This was a very beautiful post you have here. I have to say that many of us fail to realize that as our life is changing we have to change it. We all experience shifts in many if not all aspects of our lives. It is the ones who adjust and/or blend in with those shifts who will succeed. I really enjoyed this one. Thanks!

Walter 8:05 pm - 3rd October:

Fear is a fact of our existence but we can never really master it until we understand what is it. The only way we can truly step on our fears is having courage and conviction to do so. Without the willingness, we will always be under the mercy of our fears. :-)
