The weirdest thing happened yesterday.
That LEAP subscriber I mentioned – she signed up last month, in time for Issue 3.
She read it, took action, and broke out of her comfort zone like the Hulk breaks out of chains.
Her work in an important venue, inside of a week from reading the newsletter.
And, then she proceeded to cancel her LEAP subscription.
Yeah I know, isn’t it weird?
I mean, the idea of the newsletter is to get your head around business, to show you new and different and useful worldviews, and motivate and enable you to take action and get results.
Which is precisely what happened.
Says she: “You turned my worldview upside down”.
Heh… I love doing that to people.
Is that naughty?
I don’t think so.
I think we all need out paradigms pruned and replaced, as often as possible.
Can’t wait for someone to show up and do it to me.
Problem is, she was expecting a different kind of lesson – more handholding and more step-by-step instructions.
Basically, she thought she’d buy strawberry flavoured slimming yoghurt – but when she grabbed a spoon and dug in, it turned out to be cherry flavour. Not at all what she expected.
But, it instantly got her to slim down, regardless of the flavour.
The thing worked like a charm, even if she was completely unaware of it.
While she wasn’t looking, while debating whether or not to stay on, she got exactly – and fast at that – what LEAP is supposed to do:
Break you out of your fetters, and into the world.
Get your work or your art seen by people.
It scared the bejeebies out of her though, and I’m not surprised.
It’s a pretty brutal way to step out of one’s comfort zone, the way she did things.
If you’re at the sauna, you wouldn’t just jump into the ice bath – you’d start with your feet and slowly ease in, right?
Not she. She walked out of the steam and right away plunged herself into the freeze.
No wonder it freaked her out. Poor girl.
Breaking out of your comfort zone is one thing, but radically transgressing every fear you’ve ever secretly cherished is a whole different ballgame.
It’s not exactly what the doctor prescribes, though it’s not without merit.
And, many kudos to her, obviously. A grand display.
Now if she’d written in with questions, as is your prerogative as a LEAP subscriber, I could have maybe helped her move in smaller increments.
It could have saved her the shock, and it wouldn’t have cost me a subscriber.
Not that the latter matters, because once I wrote her a reply explaining my view on her actions and how massively impressive her results actually are, she instantly got back saying she’ll re-subscribe.
The word AHA-moment was used with quite a lot of cheer and merriment.
I just love, love, love it when someone turns.
When a person drops old habits and thought patterns, dips a teeny toe into the water, and says: “Hey, this is actually much nicer than I thought!”
You could be next to have the experience, you know?
That is, if you dare to leap.
Here’s what to do next:
IF you’re ready – and only if – meaning you are ready to get over yourself and start getting out of your comfort zone –
