Kicking Your Comfort Zone To The Curb

I have a love hate relationship with my comfort zone. He makes me feel good and then feel lazy. He makes me feel safe and then feel complacent. I feel strong and then weak. You get the picture right?

I’m sick of the back and forth! It’s time for Mr. Comfort Zone to get outta here! He is just getting in the way and he is not helping me!

Over the past couple of years, I’ve been pretty successful doing different things related to Internet marketing and making money online.

But my comfort zone has been holding me back. Holding me back from really connecting with others and helping others acheive their biz goals.

I have started and stopped the creation of this blog many times before. Why? Mostly fear and my comfort zone. I also don’t want to feel boxed into one area of Internet Marketing since I love doing many different things. But who cares? I don’t have to give myself a label. I can do what I love to do and share what I learn along the way!

The bottom line is that SMART business requires you to connect, build relationships, and serve others.

Every smart biz owner knows they need a ‘hub’. A place where they can connect with clients, customers, friends, fans, and so on. If you sell anything online (your own products or affilite products) then you must have a place where you can send people to so they can get to know you and your biz. 

Starting this blog is something I’ve wanted to do for a long time. NOW is the time to DO. There are other things I want to do too that are out of my comfort zone. 

Here are some things I plan on doing to break out of my comfort zone:

  • Video
  • Blog regularly
  • Increase Amazon niche blog income (test conversions)
  • Grow PLR business
  • Connect with other like minded biz owners (including doing interviews)
  • Create products

The only way to break free is to DO. Taking action and doing the thing you don’t feel comfortable doing is the only way to conquer, grow, and succeed!

I’d love to know! What are some things you want to do that your comfort zone is holding you back from doing?

I agree with those sentiments 100% – I know guest blogging for example is a great way to drive traffic and build credibility but I constantly second guess myself and convince myself I have nothing of value to offer anyone.

I also tend to shy away from it because I don’t believe it’ll make me any money – I really have to get away from that mindset of instant gratification and work to build a business for the long term.

Yes, from what I hear and can tell guest blogging is a great way to drive traffic and build credibility. I will be experimenting with this soon.

I can completely relate to you constantly second guessing yourself. I do the same thing. However, I’m beginning to think that that might always be there. So instead of listening to that voice – ignore it – and do that thing that makes you feel uncomfortable anyway.

So that uncomfortable feeling will go away and before you know it you will be an expert in that thing!

We all have to deal with that instant gratification issue too! One way I’m helping myself get over that is to provide freelance writing services while building up my PLR shop. I do believe in getting both active and passive income for this very reason!
