Do you want to move to the next level?
It may be in your business or your personal life.
If you do, then what you must do is this; get out of your comfort zone.
The fact is, we all have a place where we feel comfortable. Your life is easy there.
You can go through your day almost on autopilot. Unfortunately, this will not make you grow.
What you should do instead is expand your comfort zone. Why?
It will make you handle more challenging situations. You will be able to handle more of what life throws at you.
Getting out of your comfort zone
You expand yourself by doing things that give you discomfort.
These are things that you still feel anxious doing.
If the activity does not give you discomfort, then you are within your comfort zone.
My suggestion is, make a list of things that you know make you a better person, but you still feel anxious doing -then do them one by one.
Take your skills to the next level
For the skills you already have, consider taking them to the next level. This requires you to take on a difficult challenge.
Recently I did this when I participated in the Tall Tales Competition.
This competition required you to come up with a very tall tale and dramatize it.
It took all the courage I had to act and sing at the same time. It paid off; I won.
But that was not the big reward. My reward was, I did something that was so outside my comfort zone and did not faint.
Take your business to the next level
In order for your business to go a notch higher, you will have to do things a little differently.
You may be forced to network with people you do not know. If you see an opportunity, you may need to explore it and not be afraid to.
You may need to pay for some training in an area you are not familiar with.
Recently a successful business lady requested me to teach her about social media marketing.
She recognized that, even though, her business was doing well, social media was not her strength.
The important thing is to make yourself comfortable being uncomfortable.
Push yourself to do things outside of your comfort zone. This is the only way you will grow as a person.
