Day 22 Don’t Give Up! (revisited 2013)

So I took a look at this original post and believe it or not, some of the same things are still true! I have not done everything I can to succeed and live outside of the comfort zone, but I am seeing a lot more momentum in my business and personal life than when I first posted and went through this 30 day journey in 2011.I have updated the links to go back to the (revisited 2013) days so you if you are reading this for the first time you will be able to go back to the most current post for 2013.

The message is still the same: We are all human but we must remember to Never Give Up! No matter what! Like the saying goes:

Go Big or Go Home

And if you ever feel like giving up and you don’t feel like reading the original post I ask that you do take 4 minutes out of your day to watch the video in the post. After watching take a look at yourself and my hope is that you will see life a little differently. I know I have.

So how are you doing on this 30 day journey? If you have been taking the weekends off your still on the journey, if you haven’t the journey has ended. So on the 22nd day is a good time to look around and see if your life has changed or your business has changed because of this journey.  Let’s remind ourselves at this time of what the journey was all about. It started with a simple poster that was posted from my friend Cathy Cunningham Hankinson.


It began with a simple premise. “To Live Outside The Comfort Zone!”  So on this day I personally looked around and realized that I still needed to finish organizing my office (This was Day 1) and get rid of the clutter. I realized that I don’t do everything I need to, every day or every week. And I sometimes work when I should be relaxing and relax when I should be working, but through it all I keep on moving forward. You could say that I’m human, imagine that. I bet most of you are too.

I am still reading “The 4-hour Work Week” and a few other books. Yes, I have trouble Focusing (Day 17-revisited 2013). So why am I telling you all of this. Because I want you to know that if you aren’t doing everything you need to do to “Live Outside The Comfort Zone”, DON’T GIVE UP!

Don’t give up. There are too many nay-sayers out there who will try to discourage you. Don’t listen to them. The only one who can make you give up is yourself.  – Sidney Sheldon

Fall seven times, stand up eight. – Japanese Proverb

What lies behind us and what lies ahead of us are tiny matters to what lies within us.  – Ralph Waldo Emerson

And for all my truly Geek friends out there!

Never give up, never surrender! – Galaxy Quest

So Today: Relax, Spend Some Time With Your Family, Work If You Need To,  But Whatever You Do:


Who We Are
