Comfort Zones – Why you should HATE them!
Doesn’t your comfort zone make you feel all warm and fuzzy? Isn’t it just so…well, comfortable? How much do you value this “comfortable” feeling? Which emotion is more powerful in your life — your comfort zone or your burning desire to succeed? How bout this comparison: your comfort zone vs. your dis-contentment with your current financial status in life?
Folks, the fact of the matter is that if you absolutely refuse to expand (not break out of, just EXPAND) your comfort zone, you will never grow or change your financial status more than 10% of where it is currently. Plus or minus 10%, you will always make the same money you are now UNLESS you become willing to EXPAND your comfort zone. That’s a scary thought for some of you!
Here’s the cool part…
Expanding your comfort zone does NOT mean taking one “huge leap” by doing one singular thing that will either make you a millionaire or completely break you financially. Expanding your comfort zone is done by doing one small task at a time that is SLIGHTLY outside your comfort zone. This doesn’t sound so hard now, does it?
Here’s my challenge…
Beginning TODAY, do just ONE thing EVERY day that is outside your comfort zone. Then, once you’ve done that consistently for 7 days, raise the bar to doing TWO things every day that are slightly outside your comfort zone. Keep doing this each week for a month or two, and OH MY GOODNESS! You won’t believe all the things that you’ll be capable of that, just 2 months prior, you were scared to death of!
Seriously…how hard can this be? What’s something you’re kind of afraid of? Calling that realtor? Calling that buyer? Calling that potential private lender? Calling that FSBO lead? Mailing letters to the cash buyer data feed? Getting on next week’s mastermind call b/c you know that I’ll push you? (By the way…koodos to you who consistently show up every week. It shows me that you take your future seriously and that’s just flat-out awesome!)
Today, find just ONE thing that you’re even just mildly afraid of and DO IT!
To your success,
