Time to get Uncomfortable

I've been listening to these 8 minute calls by Bob Ferngren, nice short little pre recorded call in power packed with motivation.  Yesterday's call was 'getting uncomfortable'.  I 'signed' up with Advocare to get a discount, I figured I was plunking down some cash for my challenge and a few other things, I may as well sign up as distributor and get the 20%, right?

Then the reality of furlough came.  And it was dark and scary. I decided well...since I'm here I might as well share this product that has changed my life with a few people and hey, if I make some money cool too.  But where do you start?  I am not a pushy person, I don't like 'selling' things to people.  I don't want to lose all my friends, and I don't want to be that girl everyone runs away from.  But, I had to try.  Bob said if what you are doing is making you uncomfortable...KEEP DOING IT!  wait, what?  Isn't that the opposite of what I'm always thinking.  Why would I want to do something that makes me uncomfortable.  That's crazy talk.  The more I thought about it the more I decided, I need to step out of my comfort zone.  I need to call people and ask for help, I need to start talking about my story, to people.  in person.  Now, that is some scary stuff.  If I'm going to go anywhere and change lives with this stuff I need to get out and get uncomfortable.

So, I did.  I called a few people today and asked them to get on this call tonight, just for info.  Just to hear it out.  I called 3 people and asked them if they were interested in hearing more about my story, or trying a product.  As Beth says...its a marathon, not a sprint and I cannot compare my self to other people who hit the ground running, while I am just slowly crawling along.  Everyone is different and I matter just as much as they matter.  I made myself a little uncomfortable today and when I was asked to actually share my story on the call...I didn't completely freak out.  I shared my story and didn't panic.  Who is this girl?? The old me would have stressed myself into sickness with worry, but no...I was calm, cool and collected.

I got this...uncomfortable...I may just get comfortable with you after all.
