Getting the OMF out comfort zone means to Oust, Overtake and Obliterate My Fears. In this session of The DancePreneuring Studio, I encourage you to do the same.
- Step to Success: We are getting close to the end of December and it’s never too late to start working on your goals for 2016. I used to dread and feel so much pressure when setting goals many years ago. Check out my past session on 7 Ways to Prepare for 2016
- Dancer’s Dialect: The Dancer’s Dialect is the dancer’s language. I share dance terminology and concepts from different genres to see the correlations in your life and in your business. Today’s step is two fold, one is called a prance in modern dance, and pas de cheval in ballet, which translates to step of the horse. These terms came to mind as I pictured my son doing this skipping/prancing step every time he is happy. What do you do when you’re happy?
- Freestyle Flow: Why are a lot of dancers so stuck up? You could say that about other groups of people whether they’re attorneys, musicians, etc. Sometimes the industry has a standard to be a certain way. The perception of being stuck up can also be a protective mechanism to hide insecurities. We all have them.
Here are Some Ways to Be The Opposite of Stuck Up:
- Offer applicable action steps or simple encouragement to help someone.
- Listen intently and maintain proper eye contact.
- Stop checking your phone all the time when you’re talking with someone.
- Be that person that others look forward to seeing again because you have added value.
- Feature Presentation: 5 Things To Get the OMF out of comfort zone.
When you think of the word comfort, do you get cozy warm feelings or does it make you kind of squirmy and uncomfortable?
For me it’s both. There are some “comfortable” things in life that I appreciate like a warm beverage on a cold day, a lavender epsom salt bath after intense dance classes, and not driving in Southern California traffic, which is rare but I try to time when I am out to less congested times.
OMF in comfort stands for
OUST MY FEARS
OVERTAKE MY FEARS
OBLITERATE MY FEARS
overtake: to catch up with and pass by
oust: drive out or expel from a position or place
obliterate: to destroy completely so that nothing is left
Don’t seek security, seek adventure. It’s better to live 30 years full of adventure than a 100 years safe in the corner.
