69: Your "Safety Net" Is Keeping You Stuck (let’s fix that!)

There’s something in your life that’s just… fine. Some days, it's actually pretty good. But you can’t get rid of the nagging feeling that there’s something missing. You’re craving more. You feel stuck. You’re hesitant to give up your “safety net” (i.e. your current job, relationship, home, etc.) because what you have now is safe. You know how it all works. Even if it’s not totally fulfilling, it’s comfortable. Crisis averted. But… 

What if your “safety net” is actually the EXACT thing keeping you in a creative drought? What if giving it up meant that you would now have space to allow something else in… dare I say, something better? 

We have a limited capacity for how much we can hold in our brains. Getting rid of something creates fresh space for creative energy and new opportunities to be let in. 

Easier said than done, right? Stepping into the unknown is scary and uncomfortable. And yet, it’s often there that the most growth occurs.  

Can you allow yourself to be uncomfortable long enough to discover something you never knew about yourself? Or for an opportunity to present itself that you never knew was possible for you? 

You will never know what could be next for you if you don’t have the space to make that choice. When you no longer have a fallback option, you are forced to grow. You MUST make a choice. No matter what - you’re moving forward. 

Tune in to hear my personal experience with this and how I’m growing through it!
