What leaps of faith are you willing to take?

And then the day came, when the risk to remain tight in a bud was more painful than the risk it took to blossom. - Anais Nin

Trying new things can give you a real zest for life. Pushing beyond your comfort zone in a responsible way helps you grow confidence and creativity that you can apply to your everyday life. Do not let fear control what you do (or don't) do? While taking risks can be scary, doing nothing is a big mistake, as it produces nothing fruitful within you. There is a direct relationship between the things that we achieve and the effort we put forth to obtain them. To reach the fruit, you have to climb the tree first!  ( source:

I love this quote and this Reflection. I believe everyone can relate to this in one way or another. I know personally this quote speaks to me on so many different levels. On the health and wellness level it speaks volumes.
I was speaking with a potential client the other day and she was interested in one of my programs.But she told me she hated working out and exercise. And the sad truth is until she changes her mind set, and get out of her comfort zone and allows someone to help her she will be battling this for a life time. exercising Pictures, Images and Photos

Sometimes the fear of the unknown paralyzes us into going forward to grasp hold what we were meant to have and truly be. Fear is defined as alarm and agigtation caused by the expectation of danger. so its not necessarily that danger is out there its out expectation of that fear that keeps up at a stand still. and usually there is nothing to fear...but fear itself( who said that?)Fear Pictures, Images and Photos

The Pain of staying closed up and safe becomes so unbearable at times that you have to take the risk to blossom and let the chips fall where they may. And usually it is never as bad as we think . And actually it can be pretty liberating to look fear and uncomfortability in the face and do it anyway!!
