114 Key Principles for Success

Principle 45 - Step Outside your Zone of Comfort

One of the Key Principles for Success is to step outside your comfort zone.

Your comfort zone is doing the things you're not afraid to do. You are comfortable there.

Success is just outside this zone.

Make a list of what makes you uncomfortable.

Notice and be aware of things you stop yourself from doing that you know you should do. You let the fear and self-talk stop you.

One way to approach is to select a random item in your list and try to do it today.

Another approach would be to reduce the discomfort until you can do the task. Set up small tasks that get you to your comfort zone.

Use the Reaching-a-goal-with-the-MEAT-method.html>,MEAT method to help accomplish this.

Most things are uncomfortable because you haven't done them enough. The more you take the step the more comfortable you will be.

Some Comfort Zone quotes from Tim Ferriss (4 Hour Workweek):
  • What we fear doing most is usually what we most need to do
  • A person's success in life can be measured by the number of uncomfortable conversations he or she is willing to have

A random list of challenges to do in public:
  • Walk backwards
  • Walk with your knapsack on backward
  • Skip
  • Hop
  • Say "Hello" as you pass every 10th person on the street

Make your own list and randomly try one each day.
