23-09 Growth Zone

Download and color this week’s
Mandala of the Week

This week’s MotW is inspired by Jack Canfield’s “The Success Principles”, Principles #9 and #10: Success Leaves Clues and Release the Brakes respectfully. Since there are 64 principles and only 52 weeks in the year, I will on occasion combine two principles.

Principle #9 is short (yet important) and basically suggests that we seek out clues as to how others have done what we’re trying to do with our goal(s). With the abundance of information (social media, books, internet, mentors, coaches, etc) we have plenty of opportunities to learn from what others have done before us.

Principle #10 invites to look around for where we’re stopping ourselves from achieving our goal(s), keeping us from going beyond our comfort zone. This principle covers a lot of ground to help us “release the brakes”.

Over the next seven days, I’ll be delving deeper into these principles via multiple colorings of this mandala and posting them on the Mandalas of the Day. I hope by the end of the week to have a clearer sense of how to “look for clues” and how to move out of my comfort zone and into my growth zone.

So how about you? Do you try to do things from scratch or do you look for clues as to how others have achieved their goals? Are there areas in your life where you prefer to stay in your comfort zone? Are you willing to expand into your growth zone?

“Do one thing
every day
that scares you.”

An Invitation

I invite you to color along with me this year as part of what I’m calling “The Year of Self-Exploration and Expansion” with all of my “Mandalas of the ___” (day, week, month, year). If you’re interested in a more self-exploration approach to coloring, check out my “Coloring Mandalas as Meditation”.
