Have you ever had those type of friends who always eat at the same restaurants, always ordering the same food, and always going out on their weekends to the same bars and venues.
I am guilty of being this person!
Very little did I know, and was aware that I was doing this daily, it was stunting my own person growth for personal success.
The way we do anything in life, is the way we do... EVERYTHING.
I came to this conclusion as last week I was booking my overseas flights and accommodation for my business trip to America in August, and I had a stop over in Los Angeles for 5 days before my Convention. I have seen L.A many times before for the past 6 years and very familiar with where everything is and all the sights, views and attractions.
I know that I would be very bored if I just stayed in L.A for the duration of my time, so I thought about San Francisco which is only 1.5 hours flight away from L.A.
In my mind, the first thing that popped into my head was
" I have never been before and nor I know anyone there. "
" It's too much effort to book and find additional accommodation."
" What if I get lost."
" What if I don't like it."
ALL THESE THOUGHTS POPPED INTO MY HEAD INSTANTLY
And I realized straight away, this thinking process happens when I come out to the city every day and it hits lunch time, I only ever go to restaurants that I am
- ONLY FAMILIAR WITH
- I KNOW THE FOOD WILL TASTE GOOD
- I KNOW THE PEOPLE AT THE RESTAURANT ( because I am a regular visitor )
I noticed these common similar thoughts and how they linked to me decided on where I want to eat everyday, to where I want to travel to next.
Don't let the FEAR of CHANGE, stop you from experiencing more in life !
