Get Out of Your Comfort Zone - Before Its Too Late


Think about what you're doing each day and ask yourself - "Is what I'm doing now getting me to where I want to getto?" If the answer is "No" then do something different. Get outof your comfort zone and change your habits.

An instructor was watching me use a piece of equipment inthe gym the other day. "Let me show you a different way todo it" says he. As you'll guess, the "different" way was alot harder, somewhat more painful, however a lot more likelyto produce results.

The human body will always find an easy way to do things andso does our brain; however as we all know - "no pain - nogain." So if you want something different to happen - dosomething different.

The psychologist Abraham Maslow said - "If you deliberately plan to be less than you are capable ofbeing; then I warn you that you will be unhappy for the restof your life. You will be evading your own capabilities,your own possibilities."

It's never too late to make that change.

Ray Kroc, the founder of McDonalds, was over fifty when hestarted making money. Kroc was a paper cup salesman whoobtained the marketing rights to a multi-mixer invented byEarl Prince. He criss-crossed the US for seventeen yearsselling these mixers until he met up with the McDonaldbrothers. Dick and Mac McDonald ordered eight of his mixersand had them churning away all day. Kroc was entranced bythe effectiveness of the McDonald's operation and startedthinking about building McDonald's restaurants all over theUS. He thought he could then sell more multi-mixers. TheMcDonald brothers weren't too keen to the idea so theyfranchised the restaurants to Kroc. He ultimately bought outthe McDonald brothers and as they say - the rest is history.

Ray Kroc's belief in himself was unshakeable, as he notedlater - "I was 52 years old. I had diabetes and incipientarthritis. I had lost my gall bladder and most of my thyroidgland." Kroc didn't allow his age or his physical conditionto hold him back.

Think about the negative things you say to yourself and thebeliefs you have about yourself - don't allow them to holdYOU back.

Change your beliefs

If you do have negative beliefs about yourself, here's a wayto change them.

Your subconscious will always attempt to move away from painand towards pleasure. So start to associate massive pain toyour negative belief. Think about how it will hold you backand stop you achieving what you're trying to achieve. Thinkabout how miserable you'll feel if you don't even try.

Old people rarely regret what they've done in their life butthey do regret what they haven't done. So think forward towhen you're 75 or 80 years of age and imagine how you'llfeel if you've never tried.

Then start to think of the pleasure you'll receive infulfilling your beliefs. Think about how good you'll feelwhen you achieve what you set out to do. If when you'reolder you look back and think about things you didn'tachieve, at least you'll be able to say - "I tried, I gaveit my best shot and I didn't sit on the sidelines."

So think big - the size of your success is determined by howbig you think. If you think small you'll have smallachievements. If you think big - you'll have big success andthat's just as easy if not easier than small thinking andsmall achievements.
