Step Outside the Box
Have you ever felt limited by your own beliefs? You may have heard that mindset is key. You may even understand that what you think about yourself becomes your reality. But if you hope to change, you must first take action.
Think of your world as a great big box. The size of your box determines how much room you have to move and grow. While you feel trapped by the familiarity of daily life, you pride yourself in having ventured to the furthest corners on every side. You’ve even peaked outside tiny cracks and crevasses. Although the unknown is exciting, it’s far too comfortable where you are to step outside.
True change is on the inside. Outside influences lose power to control you. But the impact of that change is only felt when you allow yourself to be stretched. While you may seek comfort, growth is limited by the familiar. If you hope to examine life beyond the four walls of your box, you must first be willing to step outside your comfort zone.
If a desire to change is stronger than fear of change, you’ll find the courage to take a step. Step into what you’re meant to do, and you’ll become all that you’re called to be.
Mindset is key. What you think about yourself becomes your reality. Believe that you can and you will.
