Life begins at the end of your comfort zone. – Neale Donald Walsch
If you’ve been looking into starting something new, you’ve probably run into enemy #1…
Your comfort zone.
It’s the #1 thing that holds most of us back from starting anything “new”.
If you were thinking about starting a new fitness routine, making more home-cooked meals, trying a new hobby…
Or perhaps you were thinking about starting a new business on the side but you just haven’t gotten around to it?
You can thank your comfort zone for that.
It’s easy to do what we are comfortable with.
We don’t have to think new thoughts.
We don’t have to come up with any new ideas.
We can just let our habits take over and we end up doing things on autopilot.
That’s how we can let many years go by without seeing much progress in our life.
The Best Way To Get Out Of Our Comfort Zone Is To Stop Talking & Start Doing…
That one is from Walt Disney.
“The best way to start is to stop talking and start doing.” – Walt Disney
1 – Pick one thing that scares you. It can be a new project you’ve been saying you wanted to take on but just haven’t gotten around to it. Perhaps it’s something new you are wanting to learn or do. Just pick something.
2 – Jot down the first action step. What’s the first thing you’ll need to do to get the project started? Write it down. Then break that step down into several smaller steps. Small bite-sized steps you can do in 15-30 minutes or less.
3 – Decide that you are going to take the first step, TODAY. Make it a priority to do that thing before you do anything else or at least add it to your schedule and set a specific time that you’ll do it and get it done.
4 – Make your way through the list one tiny bite-sized step at a time. Before you know it, action step #1 will be done and you’ll be ready for the next step. If you start to feel overwhelmed just focus on the next tiny bite-sized step and nothing else.
One step at a time is all it takes to get out of your comfort zone. You’ll probably still feel some anxiety or even fear but that will go down with each step you take.
Which step will you be taking today?
See you next time!
