Don't Get Too Comfortable, If You Want To Succeed

Break away from the usual to get what you want.
It sounds easy. For a lot of people, it is not.
They want the future of their dreams, but can't
bring themselves to do the things that will get
Many people are stuck in a "comfort zone", a
place where there are no surprises, no difficulties,
just the same old same old, day after day. These
people have become complacent, satisfied with what
they have right now. Unfortunately, this leads to
living an unfulfilling life. "In a rut", some
would say. Being afraid of change really limits
what you can accomplish. Living in a comfort zone
stops you from trying new things. Trying to run a
business while staying in your comfort zone is a
total waste of time and effort.
Succeeding in a small business of any kind means
doing things that other people are not willing to
do. The person that overcomes the competition to
be around in the long run will not be married to
their comfort zones. Everyone has one, the question
is "Are you willing to leave yours from time to time?".
Getting out of your comfort zone means expecting
and welcoming change. This is good, because in
business, if you can't change, you're dead.
People that are like this love to experiment and
try new things and ideas. That's what marketing is
all about, folks. These are the ones more likely to
succeed with a home-based business, or any small
business. They lead rich (not necessarily financially),
fulfilling lives, reaping the fruits of what they
have sown. They succeed in business, and always get
more than the average person. They deserve to. They
do what others won't.
You may think that it's really not that easy to do.
How DO you take that step out of your comfort zone?
First, you have to be confident of yourself. Know
that you CAN do anything, with the right attitude
and effort. Get in the habit of doing things which
are not easy for you. By this I mean things that
make you feel uncomfortable or uneasy. You can
start small, but overcoming fears about your
ability and the unknown will let you accomplish
anything you want!You must take that first step,
though. Don't put it off. Take action where action
is needed. Bite the bullet and do it. You'll be
glad you did.
After you have taken action, the problem will seem
smaller than it did before. You have just witnessed
the benefits of breaking out of your comfort zone.
The next time you have a difficult task ahead of
you, don't let the fear of the unknown be a factor.
Each time you confront your fears and insecurities,
it will get that much easier to do. And your
confidence will grow.
Leaving your comfort zones behind is one of the
most important lessons you will ever learn. It is
one that will help you again and again, letting
you be creative and eager to test new ideas without
being afraid of failing. Success comes from taking
calculated risks, not by living in a bubble and
hoping for the best. It often takes many failures
to become a success. Always remember that.
