What it takes to change & be the change

The changing colors of a leaf. The butterfly. These symbols represent change.

Change. Change is so darn difficult to get used to. So darn difficult to accept.

Change brings newness, and it takes time for the newness to feel normal. It takes time for your mind to get used to your new reality or the newest version of yourself. 

Stay humble

Of all the wisest things people have told me, the wisdom that echos most: “Stay humble”. Be open. Be willing to learn from the life lessons. Don’t be so hard-headed by thinking that you know it all. There’s always something new to learn. There’s always a different way of doing things.

Be brave

Say no to a life that doesn’t bring you meaning or happiness or contentment. Say yes to what makes your soul dance. It takes consistent courage to show up after you fail, to do things differently.

Have faith

Have faith in yourself. Have faith in the people who matter most to you. Have faith in your dreams. Faith in God. Faith in your destiny.

The only thing that is constant is change.


You have the power to change yourself and your life. You’re part of a bigger picture. Your presence matters. Your work, your talent matter. Trust. Everything will work out as it should. 

3 reasons to step out of your comfort zone

take a leap of faith or barely take that one tiny step out of your comfort zone, and you’ll still be making progress. Yes, you’ll come face to face to resistance.

But whether you choose to take a leap of faith or make that one tiny step out of your comfort zone, you’ll get used to the new territory. And soon enough, the new territory will stop feeling foreign to you.

1. learn something new about yourself

the qualities or skills that you think that you don’t have are already within yourself. You don’t think you have them because you haven’t been using them or practicing them.

When you challenge yourself to get out of your comfort zone, you find in yourself those qualities and skills.

You find yourself saying, I can do that now.

2. do and see 👁️ things differently in your life

if you stay where you’re at and don’t move at all, you can’t see what’s over the horizon. You can only see what’s within reach.

The more you get out of your comfort zone, the more you learn about the world and the ways of the world.

You gain new perspectives and ideas. As a result, you become inspired to do and see things differently in your life.

3. live your dream life & be your dream self

don’t settle for a life that doesn’t bring forth the best in you and the best you. The best you will always be the motivated you, the inspired you, the hopeful you, the fulfilled you. ✨ 

How would you describe your dream life? How would you describe your dream self?

To become the person you’ve always wanted to be, to have the life you’ve always wanted to have, you’re going to have to put yourself in situations you’ve never been before.

New experiences will help you step into your new identity and life.

Your new life and your new self are one leap of faith away or even one tiny step away as shown in the GIF above.

And after you get used to the territory outside your comfort zone, remember to keep expanding that circle around you despite the resistance you face.
