What do I mean by your life begins at the end of your comfort zone? It's very simple.
As long as we're within our comfort zone, we basically don't try new things, we don't do things we're not used to, we automatically do not grow, we don't learn new things, we don't achieve new things and therefore our life cannot get better.
There's a quote I like very much and it goes something along the way;
It's not said that it will be better if it changes but in order to be better it has to change or in order to become better it has to change.
So if you change nothing in your life, your life will pretty much stayed the same way as it is now, you will just grow older but you will not have more success, you will not see more different countries, you simply don't move, you don't grow, basically it's not living. That's why your life basically begins once you leave your comfort zone.
Let it be that you go on a vacation to a country that you've never been before. It's suddenly something exciting, something like that you maybe even be slightly scared of because you don't know what to expect. Maybe you've never been on an airplane and it scares you too, but once you experience it that's actually living. You experience new things, you get to see new things, that's why you have to leave your comfort zone and it's not only important in your spare time or in your vacations to leave your comfort zone, but it's even more important when it comes to your career. Like while most people are frustrated with the 9-5 pm job, almost nobody takes action to do something. Almost nobody leaves their comfort zone, they or most people keep complaining but they do not apply for new jobs, they do not invest an hour per day after the 9-5 pm to maybe build their own side business that eventually will replace their crappy job that they don't like. And that's the point, if you do not leave your comfort zone, you're essentially not living. You're just kinda like vegetating, like you're not growing, nothing positive can come from it. Yes, probably also not that many negative things that come from it, but if you look at history like a lot of the greatest inventions, basically that eventually helped a lot of people originated because something was invented to help in the war. So they initially something bad was invented or maybe by accident something that was invented but usually at some point a lot of those inventions then also found usage or could be used to actually help people.
For an example, the atomic bomb and splitting atoms sold for less energy crisis. It's not the cleanest energy we have on this world, but it's something that at some point help humanity along the way till we figure out how to actually sustain our energy demand with 100% renewable energy.
Now that said, it's really crucial except that you leave your comfort zone. Maybe that you start reading your books that open your mind, that show you new perspective that you do things like join the one fun love challenge from click funnels to have a 30 day training program that kind of teaches you how to start your online business in 30 days. Then you join the free affiliate boot camp to see how you could make money as an affiliate. The essential point is not that you actually execute all of it.
For example, you could sign up for the affiliate boot camp and go through the videos and maybe after the videos you realize that this will be fun for you. You will enjoy it at all and it's not the way for you to go. But then you have information to make a decision and you can look for the next thing, for the next course training that offers you a way out of whatever it is you currently don't like that much. And eventually you will find something that suits you and then you act on it, and that's the crucial part. That's where you actually start leaving your comfort zone because even if you start absorbing all the knowledge that you can find but you never execute anything, then basically you're wasting your time.
It's also important not only to your leave your comfort zone in terms of like doing things and learning new things but it's even more important to start executing and don't forget this the quote says;
I have not failed, I've just found 10,000 ways that won't work.
And that's pretty much how we get to success.
Maybe you don't need 10,000 ways or tries, you only need like 3 or 5 or 10, but in the end true success hardly ever happens on the first try. It takes a couple of tries and that's why so few people are successful because there's a lot of people that do not leave their comfort zone and never really live then there's a few people who try it once and fail and then crawl back into their comfort zone and then there's even fewer people who do not mind being out of their comfort zone. In fact, enjoy them daily basis and no matter how often they fail along the way they always get up again and try again to try something different, to try the same but slightly modified or different approach and eventually they succeed.
Don't forget, in order to live you have to leave your comfort zone. The moment you stop changing or stop learning new things as the moment, we basically already missing things.
