Going Big: The 2nd Sign That You Could Be at a Tipping Point to a Major Breakthrough



In my last post, I introduced the idea that there are certain signs that happen when people are on the verge of a major breakthrough.

This is when someone suddenly zooms into success in their career, or make dramatically positive moves in their life, or even reach an ah-ha moment that transforms how they live and feel forever after.

We all want to reach these moments. 
In all the work I do teaching and mentoring people about how to Flow, I see people bloom into these game-changing moments pretty regularly. I call them “tipping points.” I can spot when my students are there.

Here’s the second clue I often see when they’re reaching one:
2. You consciously and completely decide to get uncomfortable — often REALLY uncomfortable — in certain areas of your life. 

You either decide that facing fear is actually a kind of fun activity (like the coexistent dread, joy, and fierce challenge of running a marathon), or, even if you still hate facing fear, you make a commitment that when Flow is kind enough to reveal a fear, you’re strong enough to chase it down and root it out. Without exception.

I’ve done a lot of work on myself in this area in the last two years, and as a result I’m looking at a life more prosperous than it’s ever been, and a social and family life that’s more balanced and beautiful than ever.

This hasn’t been by accident. It’s a logical outcome.

Every fear I’ve been lucky enough to uncover has shown me where I kept a block or limitation on myself. These fears form the ceiling of not just what I expect can happen for me, but on what I even dare to ask for.

People who’re breaking through to new models of success are committed to at least examining every fear or hesitation in themselves, if not actually getting into the unfamiliar, definitely uncomfortable but exhilarating place of challenging it.

Being uncomfortable often means you’ve taken yourself out of your familiar safety zone of words and actions, and are pushing the boundaries instead.

Remember, your familiar zone is what’s keeping you exactly where you are now in life. If you’re happy there, then by all means stay! But if you’re feeling increasingly frustrated, antsy, or discouraged, then get uncomfortable instead.

Whenever I feel fear, I say “yippee!” to my Flow and go after it like a dog with a bone.
My Flow is telling me, “You’re ready for this. You’re at the point in your development where you can now see this limitation inside yourself. What do you want to do with it?”

As you grow in your Flowdreaming path and manifesting practice, you’ll discover how sweet it feels to both realize and face a fear. It’s game-changer, and a tipping point. You are not the same person afterward.

My group of Sapphires are committed to uncovering their fears and getting uncomfortable–with the help of their fellow students and me. If you’re ready for a tipping point, then come check out the Sapphire Mentoring program. It keeps you in Flow, in focus, and I give you new tools constantly to keep you in a state of unfolding expansion.
(Seriously, if you don’t even just click the link, ask yourself why you’re already saying no, sight unseen to something game-changing. I bet you’ll find a fear in there, masquerading as a rationalization… Jus’ saying!!)

P.S. Is being purposely uncomfortable the same as being in uncomfortable in a negative situation? If not, what is difference? How can you tell the two kinds of discomfort apart? I’d love to hear your thoughts. Post a comment below.
