Comfortable being uncomfortable

One thing I️ hear constantly from my friends at my local box (Crossfit Gym) is that I️ avoid getting uncomfortable. When it comes to pushing towards that point physically where things hurt, where I️ can fail, where I’m outside of that “safe” comfort zone, I️ back off.

Over the last few weeks, I️ have come to realize that it’s a pattern in my life. The risks I️ take are always calculated. The chance of failure is always minimal & the damage done if I️ do fail is pretty much non-existent…

Not anymore. God has done some amazing things over the last 4-6 weeks & is calling me into an entirely new & extremely uncomfortable decision to leave my comfortable, salaried, steady & safe position to be a Financial Advisor.

I’ve gone back & forth over this for a while & at first, it started off as a slight joke. I️ reconnected with one of my first mentors, he referred me & within weeks the job was being offered to me by the grace of God.

At first, I️ thought it would take months so naturally I️ wasn’t too nervous. I️ had a few months to “help” God out and try to save some money just Incase, BUT…. that’s not what God had in mind. He made it loud and clear to me that He is going to push me out of the boat and leave Himself as the only option for survival…

This journey is by far the biggest leap of COMPLETE faith I have ever taken… Pay cut, extra costs for medical, cell phone, etc… I’m excited to see what impact God will have on the financial industry through this situation.
