Comfort zones are good places to recharge and rest, but eventually it is good to break through. Although it is tempting to stay, we grow and experience more when we allow ourselves to be uncomfortable and challenged.
Keep reaching – you’re closer than you think!
If you are confused about how to answer this week, try just saying yes and see what happens. You never know, it might end up being an amazing experience!
Two years ago, I was spending some time on the internet (to be honest, as I do everyday). I came across the most magnificent collection of portraits photographs by Kevin Horan, published in the Guardian. This was before the Goat of the Day blog, perhaps even before I thought about specializing in goat photography and understanding the connection between positive vibes and goats. I was totally inspired, and many people have shared these photographs with me since. One of the best parts about starting Goat of the Day is that people share the goats they come across in their lives or on the internet with me. So, today’s goat of the day comes courtesy of Kevin Horan and the Guardian. I hope that you all find inspiration somewhere this weekend.
Go forth this week as though you know everything is going to work out. Think about your goals, hopes and aspirations in the present tense – as though you are already experiencing them in real time. This can make them feel more real, more achievable, and closer than you realise!
You’re much closer than you think!
Dream big and dream often. If your dream doesn’t pan out, you can always dream of something else. The adventure is the best part anyway.
I hope that during the upcoming week you achieve the breakthrough you have been working towards. If you are not hoping for a breakthrough, then I hope that you have a lovely week regardless.
Sometimes, the best strategy is to detach yourself from the gratification of achievement, but focus on the benefits of the work itself. If you focus too much on the end result, you might miss something amazing along the way.
Press on and persevere – don’t worry, the view from the top is worth the struggle.
The world is your runway. Take action, take a step forward, and do so with intention and purpose. The less you worry about what other people think, the less self conscious you will be, and the more wonderful your life will be.
