Do you ever have that feeling, like you’ve hit a wall in your business and you want to move forward, but it seems like you just can’t? You keep doing the same thing over and over (because you know, CONSISTENCY, right?!) but nothings changing. You have a few idea’s that you think would really help shimmy things along, but they just feel kinda… big. Maybe even a little scary.
And you look around at other people in your industry for a little inspiration and see that they’re doing all these other things that you’re not, maybe they’re shooting reels on instagram and seeing great results with engagement and sales. Or they’re hosting free webinars, shooting lives or collaborating with industry peers.
Meanwhile, your own products or services, that are as equally valuable, are just not getting the sales or volume of clients that you really want.
If this sounds at all familiar to you my friend, I’m afraid you’ve been comfort zoned….
Yup. Thats a thing…
The only way to make progress with your business is to take action outside of your comfort zone
The problem here is, you’ve gotten so used to just doing things a certain way and staying in that comfy little safe space that the idea of stepping out of it to shoot those reels or host those webinars or whatever it is that will push you forward, just seems, kind of terrifying. Plus, you’re an introvert, yeah? So that stuff is not really for you anyway…
So you convince yourself that you don’t know what to do or that you can’t do it. Or maybe you will when x, y, z happens (oh hello procrastination!)
WRONG. (I know I used capitols here, but I said it with love)
The truth is, the only way to make progress with your business is to take action outside of your comfort zone.
Having a fixed mindset will continue holding you back not only in your business but in your life as a whole.
Now, we could spend hours unpacking exactly why you feel this way or how having a fixed mindset will continue holding you back not only in your business but in your life as a whole.
But instead, I want to give you some tangible steps that you can use today in order get out of that stuck feeling and be able to move forward.
So here’s my top 5 tips for taking uncomfortable action in order to grow your business
1. Choose one thing that you know would push the needle forward in your business. Be honest.
2. Make a detailed plan that outlines the actions you need to take, from start to finish.
3. Break the plan down into teeny tiny baby steps so it doesn’t feel too big or overwhelming.
4. Take that first baby step. Just do it. And be ready for that voice that tries to trick you into thinking you can’t or shouldn’t take the action. It’s a liar. You can do this.
5. Set mini rewards for taking uncomfortable action and take some time to show yourself some love and praise for doing the hard thing!!
Soon enough you won’t even need the mini rewards, you’ll be so happy and proud of yourself for stepping outside of your comfort zone.
I know it feels scary at first and well, uncomfortable, but It’s only through the doing of the thing that we show ourselves what’s possible. If you’re consistent with this process then you will see real results in the growth of your business, not to mention also in your confidence!
I hope this helps you take action today to grow the business and life you want and deserve. You’re the only one that can get you the results you want, and it’s all waiting for you on the other side of uncomfortable action.
See you soon!
