Afraid you don’t know how to do something? Afraid you may fail? How can you ever expect to learn if you don’t try something for the first time?
So many people that I coach worry about trying something for the first time because they don’t have the perfect plan or the perfect strategy or the perfect whatever. In my belief that’s the worst way to look at it. In order to achieve what you’ve never had, you must do what you’ve never done. If you do what’s comfortable and what you’ve always done, you’ll get what you’ve always had.
It’s so important to remain out of your comfort zone if you want to grow. You must face your fears head on and ultimately learn from those experiences in order to grow and prosper into what you’re trying to become.
Afraid to take on that new project at work? Good, then take it on.
Afraid to meet with Mr. or Mrs. BIG on your own? Good, go give it a try.
What I’ve found when I’ve done those things, is that I tend to rise to the occasion. I tend to show up. I tend to surprise myself. We are capable of so much more than we initially think. If we stopped putting limits on our beliefs, the possibilities would be endless. The things we would accomplish would be massive. We’d land that big contract, we’d get that new job, we’d get that promotion — we just need to commit to things, trust that we can accomplish them and then do everything, and I mean everything, in our power to achieve it.
So next time you are wondering if you should commit to something, do it. Just do it. Give it your all and crush it. Don’t look back, only forward.
