As you step up and into entrepreneurship you must become comfortable being uncomfortable and at the same time maintain focus and optimism. Stepping out of your comfort zone is something you have heard me mention many times. It is true. When you are out of your comfort zone you are learning and growing. In order to expand your knowledge you may often be feeling a little anxious or nervous. You may be telling yourself you can’t do this. That little voice in your head may be being a little noisy telling you it will be better not to do this new thing. You could be wondering if you are good enough or if you will be judged by others for not getting this new thing right.
This is normal. You are not alone when it comes to feeling nervous out of your comfort zone. It is exactly where you need to be at this point in time. If you are making a choice to step up, remember it is like anything else that you are learning in your life. So, of course it can be a little scary.
Think back to when you were a child and learning to swim, rollerblade, skate, climb a tree, jump off something higher that you were tall, participate in events at your school sports, stand up and answer a question in class, perform in a school play, give a speech, have a driving lesson – the list could go on. You understand where I’m coming from. You were often nervous and anxious, however you continued on because ultimately you realised it was going to be the right thing for you to do at the time.
Trust that you are in the right place learning the right skills that you will use in your business. Know that others will see the passion you have for your business and they will want more of you.
There is the saying ‘feel the fear and do it anyway’. This is true. Step out of your comfort zone, feel the fear and know that you are growing to support all your amazing clients to do the same. Feel and show the passion and challenge yourself everyday to do something that has you a little scared. Make this a habit. Stop waiting for the right time, or the right place, or for everything to be perfect. Challenge yourself and watch the results come your way.
