Get Comfortable Outside of Your Comfort Zone

Success is a mindset.  So many times people have good ideas, but they are afraid to put them into action.  They become comfortable with their lifestyles and daily routines.  They worry more about what other people will think than what rewards they will reap when they reach their dreams and goals.

I’ve found that an important philosophy in life is to get comfortable being outside of your comfort zone.  If you have a good idea, then put it into action.  Have confidence in yourself and be willing to take risks.  Thomas Edison said, “Show me a thoroughly satisfied man and I will show you a failure.”   Don’t be afraid to stand out from the crowd and stand behind your ideas.

If you don’t believe in you who will?

    Getting outside of my comfort zone is not easy, but working with Rich over this past year and a half has shown me that it’s absolutely necessary for success and progress. Through working with him, he has pushed me to get comfortable outside of my comfort zone, face my fears and have confidence in myself. Worrying about what other people think has been something that has hindered my potential for a long time, and I am now able to understand that what others think and say about me is none of my business. Rich not only stresses the importance of this, but lives by example, and has shown me time and again the true benefits of his philosophy.
