I am on a quest! Yes, I am.
I am seeking out ways to make me uncomfortable. I know, I know that it’s not the norm but I have found that is the only way to challenge me to move to another level in my business and in my life.
I have been talking about content a lot lately and making sure you are getting the right messaging out to your audience. That is what I’m challenging myself to do at a higher level so that I can fine-tune my message. And there are a few other things I am focused on as well such as better understanding of my business numbers so that I can positively affect them. I am taking courses to improve that.
So I am really stretching myself and stepping outside of my box. What I have learned is that when I push my clients to step outside their comfort zone, they do amazing things and provide greater value in what they do.
What happens when you step outside that box is that you begin to grow and develop and do things that you only wished about in the back of your mind. You grow the confidence to step out and do things you never imagined you were capable of.
My podcast guest and I, Kari DePhillips, talked a little bit about that on the podcast this week and the amazing things that she has been able to do with her business since stepping outside of her comfort zone. She now lives a lifestyle of travel and supporting other women in their laptop lifestyle. Such an exciting journey for her!
Being able to step out of your comfort zone will give you wings you never knew you had. It will give you the permission to be and do the things that you have only dreamed of.
So how do you take the first step?
So being able to take that first step may seem a little difficult but most of the time it can be easy especially with the help of someone else that will push you. It’s like you don’t really know what you need because you can’t see it. Kind of like not being able to see the forest for the trees. So that person that is there can see and they can help to push you towards.
So here’s what I would say, allow yourself to dream big and think radical. Select something that you have been really wanting to try. You may need to research it first to find out exactly how to execute it. But then I would go ahead and plan it out and do it. And what is the worst that could happen?
The worst is that you would have taken the plunge and went outside of the box, you would have learned a lot of cool and amazing things, and you would have conquered your fear of doing the unthinkable. It’s a win-win-win.
So let’s get started right away on becoming uncomfortable so it will be a practice that we get used to and plan for often. Being uncomfortable in your business is what helps you to stand out in this noisy space and help you to bring greater value to your clients.
