Why Getting Out of Your Comfort Zone Is the Best Thing You Can Do as an Entrepreneur
You can’t guarantee anything – except that you’re going to be uncomfortable at different points in life. Once you realize that, you can decide to practice getting more comfortable out of your comfort zone.
Do something that’s uncomfortable on a regular basis.
The first thing you can do is sit down and make a list of everything that makes you uncomfortable, and try these things on a regular basis.
Nine times out of ten, you’re probably not going to love this new thing, but that one time could be amazing, and you’ll realize you’d been missing out on this because you were stuck in your comfort zone.
Start really small.
Don’t start with huge, sweeping changes. It’s better to start really, really small.
Make your list in order of least uncomfortable to most intimidating, and tackle it from start to finish.
If you’re afraid of heights, don’t immediately go skydiving, try going on a simple hike that has a beautiful view at the top.
Put yourself into different roles.
Trying out new roles in your business not only will give your opportunities to practice stepping outside your comfort zone, but it will also help you understand other roles in business and how each role plays a part in the end goal.
Remember the things that make you comfortable.
Meditate on the things in your life that bring you peace, so that even when you’re in uncomfortable situations, you know that you have these things to look forward to, and that discomfort won’t last forever.
