12 Days of A GG Christmas: Day 7 - Do Something that Scares you!

12 Days of A GG Christmas: Day 7 - Do Something that Scares you!

What the heck?!?!?! Yes! Challenge yourself to do something that is out of your normal schedule or way of going about your day. Sometimes these experiences can be the ones that add your life the most!

So, to complete this task (and its a tough one) ask yourself honestly what makes you nervous, or scared... why does it make you nervous or scared? For most people, its public speaking. Jerry Seinfield said in an episode of Seinfield that the number one fear in the world is public speaking, and number two is dying... so at a funeral, most people would rather be the person in the casket than the person giving the speech. lol. Interesting. But I can definitely say public speaking makes me nervous... but I do it anyways :) (and I joined Toastmasters so that I can do it every week ;) haha)

try it for yourself - and share what you did!

Here's a few examples:
1. Say hi to the stranger beside you on the bus and initiate a conversation
2. Speak up to someone who hasn't treated you fairly
3. Make a commitment to learn a new hobby that you've always wanted to do, but never thought you could do it (like learning the play an instrument, or paint, or anything!)

WARNING: No jumping off bridges or buildings unless its supervised by a liscenced professional and you're attached to a bungee cord ;)
