Yep! This is my first blog post and it’s scary as hell! Why is it scare? Because, it’s something I’ve never done before. Would if no one reads it? Writing is not my strength. Will I be able to produce content that will add value to my readers.
I’ve been waiting to start this blog since late 2015. So, I finally decided on December 3, 2016 that I rather do it scared as HELL, than remain in the safe zone. I don’t know if it is her original comment, but I heard Co-Pastor Sheree Sykes, the Co-Pastor of Shekijah Preparation Assembly said “do it afraid.” . I’ve been sitting in the safe zone. The safe zone is where you sit and think about what you want to do, what you could do, and 1000 reason why you can’t do.
Here are 3 reason you should move from the SAFE ZONE to the SCARY ZONE:
Scary Is Where Success Is Starts – I promise you nothing GREAT ever happens in the safe zone. If you ask anyone that has achieve any level of success, I promise you they will tell you they were scared at first to get started.
Be the First to Fail – These are the words that Dr. Samuel Chand spoke to Dr. R.A. Vernon of The Word Church when he was attempting to do something that had never been done in a predominantly black church. We have been taught to fear failure instead of embrace it. Failure is not a bad thing. Failure means you at least took a step that millions of people were afraid to take. It is also important to note that FAILURE doesn’t mean all is lost or you don’t keep trying. Each failure should provide feedback for you to do it better the next time.
What Do Really You Have to Lose? – If you do that which you are afraid of and it doesn’t work out, you’ve pretty much lost anything. However, if you stay in the SAFE zone and never try, then you’ll never know what could have been. Here’s a thought – you just might succeed.
So get your SCARED BEHIND out of the safe zone and into the scary zone. Write the book! Start the Business! Write the proposal! Ask for the sale! You don’t need to know the end results – all you need to know is what you need to do next?
