Once we take the first step to living life outside of the box that society, labels, fear and limiting beliefs put us in, a world of possibility presents itself.
We begin to experience a sense of limitlessness to what we can do, dream, be and become.
Life outside of the box allows us to grow into the best version of ourselves - to create, explore, love, dream, enjoy and find purpose in our lives.
The problem is - this box has been carefully crafted to make us feel safe. To keep us playing small in our own lives. To keep us from living full out.
Because full disclosure: a life lived full out - without fear - in the moment - is not for the faint of heart.
It’s for those who are ready to get comfortable with feeling uncomfortable. It’s for those who are ready to face uncertainty with the certainty they have in their heart: Their dreams are bigger than the unknown. It’s for those that are ready to take bold action and embrace the adventure.
If you are a curiosity - adventure seeker, one who wants to suck the marrow out of every moment, then the box is not for you. It’s time to gain clarity, develop confidence and act with courage.
It’s time to step out of the box. In fact, Go Big: RECYCLE it so that you cannot step back in!
Embrace the journey. Embrace your best life. YOU are now a priority. YOU are now the driver of your life.
Exercise: Step out of the box
First: Draw an image of a box on a blank piece of paper.
Next: Inside of the box write down everything that comes to mind that is keeping you playing small, safe and secure. Write down the things that are keeping you living in bounds. What is keeping you there - what are the boundaries of the box giving you?
Next: Outside the box write down the things that would be possible if you left everything you wrote in the box, in the box - and you stepped out. What would it open up for you?
Bonus step: Cut out the image of the box and place in an image of YOU surrounded by all that is possible!
