Experiments, by their very nature, aren’t about “doing it right”. They’re about trial and error, strokes of inspiration, exploring new terrain and finding new discoveries along the way.
Yet, all too often we stay put and play it “safe” – out of fear of failure, or doing it wrong, or what others will say about it, or believing that it has to be perfectly perfect. These fears and limiting beliefs are what keeps you stuck in repeating patterns, creating unwanted results.
By experimenting with new approaches and ways of being, life quickly becomes an adventure again. New, exciting, creative opportunities begin to show themselves. Life gets fun again.
Since “someday” is not a day of the week and we can only ever create from the present moment, the time to start is NOW. Make today the day you launch a pure and powerful dream-accelerating ripple effect in your life.
Decide to begin – from exactly where you are.
Dust off those dreams that have been put way up on that hard-to-reach shelf, or have been locked away or long forgotten – or that simply feel too unrealistic or impossible to ever actually come to fruition. Choose to step forward and get up close and personal with your dreams. When you do this, you activate the powerful, playful, dormant creativity that resides within YOU.
Whether you are a manifesting aficionado …
Whether you have never really given your dreams much attention or importance…
Whether you feel confident about knowing what you want OR you feel really unsure about what your dreams are…
… you will receive so much from this FREE Training: “9 Simple Powerful Strategies to Accelerate the Realization of Your Dreams.
One of my biggest passions and unique abilities is helping driven dreamers and what I often refer to as “closeted creatives” to break pattern and release themselves from status quo expectations and “shoulds”, while quickly creating a life that they truly can’t wait to get-up-and-out-of-bed-for-in-the-morning.
You’ve likely heard this quote before, frequently credited to Albert Einstein: “The definition of insanity is doing the same thing over and over and expecting different results.”
Whoever said it … there’s truth to it.
Making a conscious shift in your routine, even a slight one, can be a way to intentionally shake things up! While routine and consistent approaches can support efficiency and learning new skills … the down-side is that same-old-same-old routines can become monotonous and detrimental, stifling your creative energy and impeding the spontaneity and fun that comes from the unexpected!
These “creature of habit” behaviors can quickly become robotic, unconscious ways of being. For example: Have you even gotten in the car and gone to work, or the gym, or the grocery store, and after arriving realized that you don’t remember the actual drive there?
When you take the same route, time and time again, your mind goes into autopilot. This can happen with your life too. Especially for creative thinkers and innovative dreamers … autopilot gets downright BORING!
Ultimately, the way you do things is in many ways as important as WHAT you do.
So, consider for yourself: What do YOU do, in the same way, virtually every time? What’s YOUR routine?
Scan through a typical day in your mind and decide on something that you’ll do differently today – something that breaks up your everyday pattern. Color outside the lines, so to speak, of what’s “typical” for you.
It doesn’t have to be earth shattering to be significant.
Whatever it is that you choose to do differently, allow it to be a symbolic welcoming of new patterns and new experiences in your life. Allow it to serve as a small yet powerful demonstration of your personal willingness to embark on a playful adventure into the unknown.
For example, you might:
- Take a different route to work.
- Wear an outfit that you never wear.
- Eat something new or different.
- If you always eat with others, eat alone – or vice versa.
- Call someone you haven’t talked to in years.
- Switch up your work-out routine, doing something new to work up a sweat.
- Exit/enter through a different door than you usually do.
- Perhaps go outside and walk around your home in order to get from one room to another.
- You get the idea…
Pay attention to how it feels.

What a wonderful experiment to encourage people to get out of their comfort zone and to experience new ways of being in the world, Tara. This is something I find I am doing more as I have gotten older. Last week I began a contemporary art course and was only planning to do Fridays vs. Thursdays and Fridays. The facilitator asked us all to come for both days of the first week, which I did. I LOVED the people and content and now as shifting my routine again so I can take part in the next six weeks for two days a week, instead of one. With a little bit of resistance, but I know changing things up, is a surefire way to stimulate my creativity and to move me a step outside my comfort zone. I did that in Sedona recently as well. Hiking by myself, with only myself to count on in sometimes tricky terrain.
Way to go, Beverley! By stepping outside our comfort zones, we expand our comfort zones, opening up new possibilities for our life. Onward and upward!
