Dangerous ENOUGH – that is – to step outside of your comfort zone.

This week’s challenge is all about doing something that is a little – or a lot – out of your ordinary, will make you feel uncomfortable and challenge existing fears,  but will leave you feeling totally exhilarated and elated.

Maybe it’s something BIG like jumping out of a plane – with a parachute of course. (I said dangerous not death wish)

Or committing yourself to a 60-day body transformation challenge. (Watch out on this one – you just might get in the best shape of your life!)

Or simply eating at a new restaurant and/or trying a different food.

Or traveling someplace you’ve never been – maybe even somewhere where you don’t speak the language.

Or taking up a new hobby – something that has interested you since you were a child, but you never got around to doing.

Or sitting down and having a respectable conversation with someone affiliated with a political party different than your own or of a different culture or religion – with the intention of learning more about them.

Or maybe open your heart and allow one of the largest perceived dangers out there into your life – LOVE.

It doesn’t matter what the “dangerous” thing is. It just matters that you do something that you have been putting off or avoiding altogether. Maybe it never occurred to you before.  Or is something completely outside of your box or your perceived realm of possibility. Or you’ve just been too afraid or hurt to try – or try again.

Whatever the “dangerous” thing is for you –  write it down in your FREE TAL 52-Week Adventure Journal. Along with:

Why you want to do it.

Why you haven’t done it up to this point.

What scares you about it?

What excites you.

What are the steps you’re going to take to make it happen?

And make sure to come back to your Journal and write about the experience once you carry it out. And be sure to share with the TAL community below too. It’s important to share our stories of making strides, facing challenges head on and overcoming perceived limitations in our lives, in order to encourage others to do the same for themselves.
