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

By Ken Leonard Jr. © KLJ Online

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 them there.

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.

Break out of your comfort zone, and Make It Happen for you!
