Clothing Comfort Zone – Forever in Blue Jeans

Last night I had dinner with my good friend Mike Shea. We were discussing the book, Secrets of the Millionaire Mind and the upcoming Millionaire Mind Intensive that we’re going to in December. He said that he was going to take one of the “action steps” suggested in the book and buy himself some nice clothes. I agreed that looking “like a million dollars” is an important step on the path to financial freedom.

However, this morning, as I was getting dressed, I caught myself automatically reaching for my blue jeans. As I pulled them on I recalled our conversation. “But I love my jeans,” I thought.  “They’re so comfortable and they just feel right.”

And then the light bulb went off and the bell went ding, ding, ding! “You’re a winner!”

The keyword there was “comfortable.” Stepping into financial abundance means stepping out of the comfort zone. To become truly wealthy, to achieve true financial freedom, I must be willing to leave this place of “making enough money to get by but not having a whole lot more.” I have to be willing to step out of this familiar space and venture into the unknown.

Wearing blue jeans most of the time is just one way that I – until now – unconsciously have perpetuated my connection to my present financial state.

By choosing different pants in the morning, pants that cause me to consciously step out of my comfort zone, I will start my day with an outlook and attitude that is more attractive to the abundant wealth that I am now allowing into my life.

What actions do you take – or not take – every day that anchor you into some existing comfort zone? Pay attention today to seemingly mundane thoughts and actions that may be holding you back.
