Out of my comfort zone or out of my mind?!
If you only do what you know, you’ll never grow (and neither will your income or influence!). But let’s be real… pushing yourself out of your comfort zone can feel downright awkward. That’s why I’m taking on The Awkward Project – a yearlong experiment to find out just how much a person can achieve when they step out of their comfort zone and into their full potential.
In my years as a business and branding coach, I’ve watched some clients explode to the next level while other stay right where they are despite learning the exact same things. Why? Success doesn’t come from what you know; it comes from boldly using your work ethic, knowledge, talent and connections to grow — no matter how uncomfortable it gets. That last part? It’s the key.
But what does stepping out of your comfort zone actually look like day to day? Instagrammable quotes like “Success is on the other side of your comfort zone!” don’t help when it comes to implementation, so I’m putting myself through 365 days of “awkward moments” to find out.
