Get Outside YOUR Comfort Zone
to make a difference for yourself
and others in 2013

Playing it Safe?
The time to play it safe is past....
We have survived the new birth for 2012 and we are on to
co-creating an amazing 2013 and beyond.
Today I want to acknowledge three people who are going way out of their comfort zones all the time and who made a big difference for me and others this year.
One is a client, Logan Frye (listen to his audio interview on this blog) Logan's Job Hunt Story - short audio The other two are great public figures:
Well known Santa Barbarian, author and inspiration to millions Jack Canfield and the other is career advisor Mildred Culp.
Your community might be on line or blended as with most of us. Now is the time to get out of your comfort zone and give back in ways greater and more effectively than ever before. YOU will be the big time winner here.
Logan Frye used a combination of Social Media (Linked In, Facebook, Monster, Indeed.com) and plenty of other on line resources to find his dream job in his dream city of Manhattan, New York. He took a leap of faith and moved from Michigan where the new college grad blended his elbow grease with shoe leather and knocked on plenty of doors. I nominate Logan as one of my favorite heros on 2012!
You too can find your dream job by first deciding what the qualities of the job or the people you will work with are. Once you decide what's more important to you, you can begin to follow up leads and tell friends and interviewers what you prefer. Most of the people who agree to see you for informational interviews want to help people who are eager to help themselves and who pay it forward.
Like Jack Canfield says repeatedly in his good books, Key to Living, Life Lessons or the Chicken Soup Series... He is credited with some of my favortie quotes:
"Don't worry about failures, worry about the chances you miss when you don't even try."
"Most everything you want it out there waiting for you to ask. Everything you want it just outside your comfort zone."
@MildredCulp has a great career blog called @workwise. She has been the Dear Abby for jobs for decades. http://www.workwise.net/
Enjoy the RIDE!
Great people..... great ways to make a big difference in your life.
the best to you in 2013
