Expand your horizons

My blog has been quiet for the last few months as I put the finishing touches on my 2nd book The ULTIMATE Career Guide for Nurses. The guide will be in print in a few months and is being published by the Gannett Healthcare Group, the company that publishes Nursing Spectrum and NurseWeek magazines. Now I’m getting ready to write my 3rd book – a motivational book for the masses – not just for nurses. This is a long time dream of mine. And to think that I once believed I had no ability to write.

It’s amazing how self-limiting our own thoughts can be. It’s also amazing the things we discover about ourselves when we’re willing to step outside of our comfort zones like getting up in front of a group and speaking or submitting an article for publication or enrolling in classes. The world is such an exciting place when you get yourself out there and try new things, meet new people. Yes, it can be scary at first but it’s also exhilarating.

What have you dreamed of doing but are afraid to try? Would you be willing to let go of the outcome and just try for the experience of doing it? I guarantee you will grow from the experience and might just discover something that you’re good at or that you enjoy doing in the process.
