When you step outside your comfort zone, yes it will feel scary. However, once you keep taking those steps it will start to feel easier. Face your fears and venture out and experience personal growth. When you are in your comfort zone, your brain doesn’t want anything to change.  However, living outside your comfort zone creates just enough good stress to ramp up your focus, creativity, pace, and drive, and it helps you respond to life stress when unexpected things happen.


To develop your personal development there are several ways to push yourself outside of your comfort zone every day.

1. Don’t take the safe choice
2. Consider other points of views
3. Do what you are afraid of
4. Remember that tomorrow is another day


When I decided to take a leap and give up my job and become a personal development coach, speaker, and author, it was scary. Each day I would do something that scared me. I still take those steps and push myself. I have realised the benefits of living outside my comfort zone. Here are four reasons as to why living outside your comfort zone is beneficial.

1. Personal growth
2. New challenges and experiences rewire your brain and make it more adaptable, stronger, and healthier
3. You will boost your self-confidence
4. Each milestone makes it easier to tackle another milestone
Take that step today

Just do it.

You’ll be glad you did.

Are you living outside your comfort zone?

What will you do today that scares you?

It is approaching the end of 2018 already.

At this time of year, I like to reflect.

Self-reflecting helps you to look at what you have carried out so far.

Thought provoking questioning goes round and round in my head.

These are some of the questions I have asked myself over the last few weeks.

Image result for question mark

What have I accomplished?

What have I not accomplished?

How can I do things differently to produce different results?

What else do I want to work on?

How will I go about doing that?

How will I navigate the challenges?

Personal development helps you to make improvements in your life.

Creating an action plan is all part of the personal development process.

Remember personal development is a lifelong process.

Four benefits to personal development.

  1. You will be able to make crystal clear goals
  2. You will be motivated
  3. You will have a better work-life balance
  4. It will improve your prospects

What areas do you want to work on?

Do you have a personal development plan?

Why not work on it TODAY!

Check out my story which has been featured in Purpose Driven Women Magazine.




Inspiration starts from WITHIN.
That JOYOUS moment of thoughts that manage to hit from the DEEP.
Just deep enough for your thoughts to TRANSPIRE from the depths to a REALITY.
Those precious thoughts that TRANSPIRE to INSPIRE.
Whether it be in the unconscious moments or whilst wide awake,
It is more than a burning passion to more than make it happen.

You wake up and it’s there, you go to sleep and it the thought it still there.

Giving up is an option we can CHOOSE.
Though in the mist of it all you can dwell on it or OPEN DOORS.

You can not do the same thing and expect different results.

If you want to see CHANGE, you have to do things differently.

I was sharing with a student that if you want to pass this course you have to study hard, show up to class and submit your assignments. You WILL not pass with great results if you do not put the hard work. You have to start to do things differently.

You have to put ACTION into your thoughts.

What do you want to change? Is there a circumstance, situation that you want to see changed?

Do you find yourself going around in circles?

Start to make changes TODAY.

The FIRST step is to write down what you want to see changed.

Writing things down is a powerful thing. What you are doing is writing the vision down.

It does not stop there.

You have to start acting on what you want to see.

You have to start making different choices. Going in a different direction.

Ask for people to support you in the changes you want to see.

Expect POSITIVE CHANGES because you are doing things differently.

I challenge you TODAY.

Write down the changes you want to see.

Then start to take action and EXPECT POSITIVE changes.

If you need support in making changes you can email me on

I look forward to hearing from you.
