Stepping Outside Your Comfort Zone

When was the last time you came up against something that was uncomfortable? Something that made you procrastinate for hours, something that was scary, even made you feel a little sick, something that you didn’t feel you had the experience to be able to tackle.  You may not have felt you were even good enough?

There will be many times in your business that you will no doubt feel like this, moments when you hit the wall and think this is all too hard. Believe me the last two days I felt just like this. Yesterday I sat at my computer and nearly cried, it all seemed too hard. Every post I read on a forum basically made the task I was attempting to do, seem so easy – yet I couldn’t find anything to help me on my journey.

I was so stressed about this task that I decided it was time to take a break.  Shhh, don’t tell anyone I had a nanny nap, I laid on the lounge and had an afternoon sleep. 30 minutes later, I returned to my computer took a deep breath and thought – “if it was easy I guess they would all be doing this”.  I needed to take a step forward and find a way.

You see for many the task wasn’t probably that hard but as it was a whole new experience for me I was being pushed to my limits.

If you are growing your business then no doubt you too, will have moments like these. By taking a step down that path and facing the unknown you demonstrate that you are serious about being successful.

What are you going to do today that steps’ you outside your comfort zone and continues you on your path of success?
