Life Is Boring In That Bubble
>From Seinfeld - Jerry: He's a bubble boy. George: A bubble boy?!
Susan: What's a bubble boy?! Jerry: He lives in a bubble!
When I consider everything good that's happened in my life, it's
all been due to taking risks. When you look at your dreams, do
they require you to sometimes be uncomfortable? To stretch
outside of your safe zone - outside of your 'bubble'? Absolutely!
Do you want to hear a confession?
The first few times Kelly McCausey asked me to be on
WAHMTalkRadio.com, I made excuses! I tried to hide in my
"I have Boy Scouts that night." "I'm not feeling well."
BAWK! BAWK! I was terrified to record with her. I admired her so
much and didn't want to make a fool out of myself.
After this happened a few times, I was getting embarrassed. My
friend Annette Yen and I dared each other to do one thing we
were scared to do. She promised to write an article and I agreed
to go on Kelly's show. We shoved each other out of our bubbles.
Now, Annette is an article-writing machine - and Kelly can't get
rid of me!
Consider one of the biggest risks in life - parenthood. If we
had been too scared to take the chance to become Moms, think of
everything we'd be missing.
Yes, it caused considerable agony at times.
Being naked in a room of doctors? NOT fun. Dealing with a
screaming baby in an airplane? Absolutely awkward. Driving your
4 year old to the emergency room with a broken leg? Downright
The rewards of parenthood? Priceless. Thank God for risks and
Your business is the same way. Yes, it's hard to reach out and
to take risks, but that's where the payoff is.
Think about it.
I hope that this year brings you rewards and joy beyond anything
you can imagine. Dream big and set your goals high.
You deserve every happiness.
