There’s no place like home for the holidays. This year, take a new route there (or back)

“Windshields kissed with snow,
on this endless interstate.
Over the fields we go, laughing all the way”
– Melissa Etheridge, Glorious

Stepping out of your comfort zone is often associated with challenging yourself to do something difficult. Today I want to tell you that it doesn’t have to be that way. It can simply mean taking what you already know and expressing it in YOUR unique, innovative way. It doesn’t have to be hard, just different. Take it from me: this can be fun!

My friend, fellow professional speaker and former WLS radio personality, Catherine Johns does this on a regular basis by putting into practice what she learned from her dad: “Never go back the same way you came.”

What a great easy way to step out of your comfort zone and see new, interesting things. It can start with something as simple as your daily commute. As Catherine says, “it keeps things fresh,” and with that comes new ideas, opportunities, possibilities, and solutions.

Combining the old with the new helps shake you out of the rut of routine, enables you to see the world with fresh eyes, and keeps the spark of innovation alive in your life.

I enjoy this holiday song because it does just that, combining familiar holiday melodies with contemporary, relevant lyrics, to make for a new heart-warming holiday song. Take a listen:

Wishing you a Superstar Holiday Season!

Are you booking speakers for your group or meeting? After not singing for 35 years – in a moment of madness – I answered an ad to be a singer in a Rock’n’Roll band… and got the gig. I share my story about how stepping out of my comfort zone and getting a little outrageous has changed my life.

I want everyone I reach to experience the same transformation through the “GoGaGaTM” process I’ve developed to help attendees Unleash THEIR “Inner Superstar” and realize that it’s never too late to bust through their fears to perform at levels they never thought possible. My talk takes people from “I can’t” to “I can” in 45 to 60 minutes – with my special brand of entertainment with a message.
