Why I'll Never Stop Taking Risks (and an Announcement)

My heart's beating fast. My palms are a bit sweaty. My breathing's shallow.

And I know by now that's a good sign.

Because here's what I believe:

True success, true happiness. true fulfilment - comes from taking risks. From not staying comfortable. From doing the things that could either crush you completely or be the making of you.

I know that if I'm not risking, I'm not living. If I'm not risking, I'm not growing. If I'm not risking, I'm not moving towards my ultimate potential.

And for me at least, risk-taking most often looks like following an impulse. A gut feeling. A calling from my heart.

Which leads me to today's announcement:

As of today, I'm going to be posting an article every day, Monday to Friday. Sometimes just by email to the people in this community. Sometimes here on the blog.

If this is the first thing that comes into your head...

"Shit, why is she doing this? I don't want to get an email every day, it's too much"

...then there are a few things you could do:

  1. Unsubscribe. (It's ok, I get it.)
  2. Stick around and read the emails you want and delete the rest. Simples.
  3. Save everything up during the week and binge read for an hour over a cup of tea at the weekend when you're in need of some inspiration.

And in case you're interested, here's why I'm doing it (in a nutshell):

Because I had an impulse to do it.

Because I feel good when I write and want to challenge myself to write more, publicly.

Because I want to see if I can do it.

Because I'm too comfortable with my Monday routine.

Because I know that if I'm emailing every day, I'm going to end up with the people who really want to be part of this community. And that's what I want. A tight knit community of like-minded people who are going ALL IN to creating their dreams.

So yes, this is 99.9% all about me and what I want to do. But for those of you who love hearing from me, I hope that this is only going to add more fuel to your fire to get out there and create everything you want in both your business and your life. This is about me stepping up in my business. But in doing so I want to show YOU how much is possible, if you decide and if you're willing to risk.

And here's what's going through my head:

What if my writing's shitty because I'm trying to write too much?
What if it's a big mistake for my business?
What if I get no comments on the blog now because people don't have time to leave comments when I'm writing so often?
What if, what if, what if???

So let's get back to the risk-taking:

If I'm not risking, I'm not living. If I'm not risking, I'm not growing. If I'm not risking, I'm not moving towards my ultimate potential.

And the same goes for you.

If you're not risking, you're not living.
If you're not risking, you're not growing
If you're not risking, you're not moving towards your ultimate potential.

So here's today's challenge:

  • What impulse are you not following?
  • What calling from your heart are you not listening to?
  • Where are you too comfortable right now?

And will you commit, today, to risking something? To living? To growing? To moving towards your potential?

If you're a YES, type ALL IN in the comments below. And if you're up for it, share the risk you're committing to. No more hiding. No more excuses. It's time create the life you want.

Love and courage,

Leah
