I should be asleep, but it's 12:30am on a Saturday and I'm typing up an Instagram caption. Cause, well, consistency is important. And I felt inspired. So here goes...🌛⁠⠀ ⁠⠀ @brendonburchard said something that stuck with me today at the #Risebusiness conf →"Raise the ambition, deepen your discomfort."⁠⠀ ⁠⠀ Some of us love comfort. Are you one of them?⁠⠀ ⁠⠀ I definitely am. I quit my corporate job almost 5 years ago today which set me into a spin of MASSIVE discomfort. Going from a 11+ year career with a good salary, benefits and predictable path to jumping into a business I knew nothing *really* about with no salary, no benefits, and no safety net. That was NOT comfortable. 👎🏻⁠⠀ ⁠⠀ So, I lived in that discomfort. Figuring it out as I went, never knowing if I could pay my bills, and putting financial dreams on hold. Not just for a year, but a WHILE. However, today, I realized I've gotten myself back to my *comfort* zone AND that may be hindering my growth. Predictability, stability and a somewhat "safe" feeling position in my business. I've created my own 'corporate' job.⁠⠀ ⁠⠀ Is that what I intended to do? No, but somewhere along the line it maybe all got too scary so I reverted into old habits. I made it more comfortable. ⁠⠀ ⁠⠀ Do you ever go to the same restaurant and order the same dish again and again? Why do we do that? Well, it's usually because we know it's good, and you can depend on it to be good.⁠⠀ ⁠⠀ That's ok, but if you're never trying any new foods, you might be missing out on some amazing new dishes and flavours.⁠⠀ ⁠⠀ So, I'm committing to getting out of my safe zone, and embracing more ambition in business. Fortune favours the bold. 👏🏻⁠⠀ How can you become “less” comfortable? ⁠⠀ (That said, I'm still down for wearing comfortable pants 24/7..... I'm not a total crazy person. 🤩)⁠⠀ ⁠⠀ ⁠⠀ ⁠⠀ ⁠⠀ ⁠⠀ #risebusiness #hollisco #womeninbiz #madeformore #rachelhollis #charleston #femalefounder #girlsboss #boss #femalefounders #entrepreneurship #minset #missiondriven #minimalist #wanderlust #stayopen #sustainable #consciouslife #consciousliving #entrepreneur #ethicalfashion
