Words. The power of words is often underestimated. Words have the power to turn people’s lives around and often the people who say the words are not really aware of the impact they have on people. A quote that changed the way I look at life is
“Life begins at the end of your comfort zone”.
That quote made me realize that there is so much more out there than the life I’m living now, but that doesn’t mean at all that my life is bad. When you come clean with yourself and know that some things need to change for your own good, for you to be who you aspire to be or for you to do what you really want to do, you unconsciously look for role models or people who inspire you by what they do. I have some people in my life who continue to inspire and motivate me. They help me by asking me the right questions and often quotes are what motivate me even more.
One of those people is Christopher Gavigan, co-founder of The Honest Company. Since today is his birthday I want to share ten/some things he said that inspired me to look further than my comfort zone. Because even though you feel super safe in that zone, you have to leave that zone at some point, spread your wings and find what you are looking for. For me that is a long journey, but an inspiring one.
Home is not an endpoint, but a work in progress.
Don’t get overwhelmed.
Instead take a deep breath and know that you have more control over that situation than you think
and it’s never too late to start.
Take time to find your passion.
Really know what it is you are good at… and go for it.
Both feet, just jump in! And never give up!
I always say once you know, you can’t unknow.
No One Can Do Everything, Everyone Can Do Something
Have more fun! Take a moment to enjoy life and stop judging yourself.
If you’re to succeed at making real change in your home and world, then you need the right attitude:
Positive – Persistent – Pragmatic – Patient – Perspective
