Life beings at the end of your comfort zone.
Getting out of your comfort zone can be SCARY!! Sometimes we are paralyzed by the fear of the unknown. We work ourselves into a frenzy thinking about "what could happen". We tend to imagine the worst-case scenario when we push past the boundaries of what makes us feel safe.
Information is power. And the more you know about something, the less scary and more powerful you’ll feel.
Go out there and read more. Do more. See more. Talk to more people. For example, if you are cold-calling people for your job, you should learn about how other people have over-come the fear of cold-calling, ask for help, role play, become familiar with the products, etc.
Once you have the info you need, then you JUMP! Dive right in!! Its like the first swim of the summer. The water is still kind of cold. It looks so refreshing and everyone else is enjoying themselves but you are scared of the cold water.
You can tip toe in and feel every goose bump slowly raise over your entire body and endure the pain for a few minutes. OR you can jump right in and get over it! Its soooo much easier to just dive right in and get it over with. We waste so much time and energy pussy footing around the things we know we need to do when we could just DO IT and get it over with.
Just like anything else, it takes practice. The more you practice getting out of your comfort zone, the easier it becomes and the more you start to enjoy the challenge.
Find out more ways to get our of your comfort zone this weekend at the BE BRAVE Free Online Workshop! This workshop will be recorded and emailed out to all who register. See you there!
