Going Beyond The Comfort Zone – Successful Life Strategies

Going Beyond Your Comfort Zone

Going Beyond Your Comfort Zone I Barbara Christensen I Paleo Vegeo I Founding Ocean Avenue AmbassadorHow do you feel when you are looking at making any sort of change in your life. Does it make you sick to your stomach to try something different in your life? Does it make you feel unsure to do something that is outside of what you normally do?

That’s what we all have felt like, but no one talks about it because if you are going to be a successful mentor than shouldn’t you be the person that is never afraid to color outside of the lines?

Fear is something I believe is like a compass to the good and bad in your life. Fear of success is something that you feel when you want to push yourself beyond that comfort zone. So how does that impact you, and how can you grow beyond that?

“In order to success, your desire for success should be greater than your fear of failure.” ~ Bill Cosby

Working Into Success

Rockstars Team I Barbara Christensen I Founding Gold Ambassador Ocean AvenueThe key is to stop judging yourself before you move into a new role, or take on a new task. Instead of determining that you will fail, or even sometimes hoping you’ll fail, you have to let go and allow things to happen naturally in order to grow. I love this line from the Talmud, “Teach your tongue to say ‘I don’t know’ and ye’ shall progress”. This mindset makes you trust in the process and live in the moment. How does that feel?

It’s like taking on a program like Focus T25, something you fear will be intense. Something you fear you cannot do. When you let your body just do the work, you get it done. You finish your workout with amazing resolve because after all it was just 25 minutes.

How about asking someone if they have ever through about doing what you do, helping others. It’s not as scary if you realize it’s just a sentence you are asking to someone that you have built a relationship with. Is it something that could receive a no, of course. Just like your workout you may have to march in place the first time, stop for water, take a stretch. You’ll never get to the answer of if you can do something if you never take that first step. When you are ready to join a team of rockstars, you’ll take the first step, and I’ll be standing there to applaud it!

Getting Over the NOW Desire

Getting Over Your NOW Desire

A friend of mine shared this amazing Jim Rohn quote and it really got me thinking…

DESIRE – How does one gain desire? I don’t think I can answer this directly because there are many ways. But I do know two things about desire: 

a. It comes from the inside not the outside. 
b. It can be triggered by outside forces.


Almost anything can trigger desire. It’s a matter of timing as much as preparation. It might be a song that tugs at the heart. It might be a memorable sermon. It might be a movie, a conversation with a friend, a confrontation with the enemy, or a bitter experience. Even a book or an article such as this one can trigger the inner mechanism that will make some people say, “I want it now!” 


Therefore, while searching for your “hot button” of pure, raw desire, welcome into your life each positive experience. Don’t erect a wall to protect you from experiencing life. The same wall that keeps out your disappointment also keeps out the sunlight of enriching experiences. So let life touch you. The next touch could be the one that turns your life around. – Jim Rohn

So are are you ready to work for your desires? 

This is not about getting something you want now, or about a one size fits all product line. I like that this company focuses in on the desires of a full nation of people. I have my products for my crazy insane athletic friends (although Franco Cavaleri would laugh and say, isn’t that what WB and Empower are??) but these are products for EVERYONE. 


That’s what I love. I can offer Empower to my mom in her 70’s to help her not only with her hands, but with the skin cancer issues she is going through. That goes for the WheySmart as well. I can give WheySmart to my friend’s kid who really struggles to get something healthy in to help with focus at school in the morning. I can give my husband something that is NOT full of chemicals to help boost his energy and fat burn every morning before work. It’s a focus on long term health for all… and that isn’t what all companies are providing. 

Keep in mind what you are looking for as you go through this journey. It’s different for all, and there is not one road fits all. ­čÖé
