Tony Reeves

I dare you to do something different by Anthony Reeves

                Let’s face facts.  As we get older, we ALL tend to be RISK AVERSE.   In other words, we don’t like to do anything different.  Trust me.  I know.  As an attorney, you find that once we start practicing in an area of law for a while that we get comfortable with, we don’t switch!  And therein lies the problem with the whole notion of doing something different:  COMFORTABLE! 

                Today, I want you to look yourself in the mirror and tell yourself that you are going to do at least ONE thing that makes you UNCOMFORTABLE!!  Now, listen, I am not saying you have to do it every day but watch how your brain responds when you take yourself out of doing something that you are used to doing.  It can be something small at first.  Instead of taking the elevator to the 3rd Floor, take the stairs.  Better yet, commit to taking the stairs for that entire day and then that entire week and see how you feel.  If you’re a fast food nut, commit to eating something healthy for the week.  Go to Publix or go to Panera or bring something from home.   Put the soda down and drink some water.  I’m serious.  When you go to work, take a different route.  Go down some streets you don’t normally travel.  You will be amazed what will happen.

                Then, take your ‘UNCOMFORTABLE’ step and do something significant.  If you are afraid to speak in Public, agree to be a Masters of Ceremony.  Say what? Are you crazy?  Yea, yea, yea! Trust me on this one!  If you hate going out to large gatherings, go to a sit down jazz concert or classical music in the park.  Break yourself out of your comfort zone.  If you think you can only dance to hip hop, try tap dancing or jazz or swing.   If your boss never asks you to participate on committees, go volunteer to be on one.   It’s ok to listen to the 95.7 The Beat and Wild 98.7 but throw some RUMBA 92.5 in there and get your Spanish ON!!  Throw some 101.5 and take it back to the 80s for a few to make you laugh!  I’m serious, try it and you will see things differently.

                I  DARE you to do something different.  Most people don’t realize that your MIND must be exercised just as much as your abs, your thighs, and that butt you are determined to get tight (Looky heya, be a peace with the jiggle!!).   

We don’t realize that we do ourselves greater harm by forcing ourselves to do the same things MENTALLY day in and day out!  It’s called a routine!!   You think I’m kidding?  Ask someone in your house to tell you what you do EVERY DAY and they can give you every step to the detail!!  Break that ROUTINE!  Do something DIFFERENT!  You’ll find that the world looks so much different when you decide to look at it through a different window!
