Step out from your comfort zone
Such a busy time people! But today I’m happy to invite you to step out from your comfort zone.
What’s your comfort zone? I was watching this amazing video by TEDxVicenza where Steve Haley was explaining the same thing. So, I’m not going to explain you, watch him! 😀
So, I hope you watched it ’cause it’s a great one. Step out from your comfort zone means pushing your limits, make mistakes and do every day something that scares you.
If you’re not stepping out your comfort zone, you’re not learning and you’re not growing.
In the last months I’ve been pushing my limits a lot: take on new side projects, a new job (I’m full time with Rentecarlo now, the UK marketplace to rent cars from owners living nearby), planning a crowdfunding campaign, organise an amazing tech conference for early-stage startups and I’ve been speaking to Social Media Strategy Meetups
Sorry, what are you saying? Where do I find the time? I told you I’ve been busy, lol
I’ve been extremely busy but also really satisfied, ’cause I think I’ve learned more in the last 3 months than in the last year. Stepping out from my comfort zone has allowed me to learn a lot and I’m happy to share this learning with you.
1) Create conversations and collaborations. Power to people, I think I’ll never stop saying that. And I’m not only talking about the online world, talking with people and sharing ideas is extremely important not only if you want to learn but also understand what you like doing.
2) Say YES.
Don’t be scared. You’re scared of falling ’cause now you’re feeling really comfortable in your comfort zone. Find people who can help you, and never say no. Do one step after the other one, but learn to take risks.
3) Find your energy booster
For sure you have it, somewhere. Find what makes you happy and do it. You won’t believe how much positive and energetic you’ll start to be!
Is there something else you’d like to add? Tell me in the comments, always keen to listen to other points of view!
