There once was this criminal who had committed a crime and he was sent to the king for his punishment. The king told him he had a choice of two punishments. One, he could be hung by a rope. Or two take what’s behind the big, dark, scary, mysterious door.
The criminal quickly decided on the rope. As the noose was being slipped on him, he turned to the king and asked: “By the way, out of curiosity, what’s behind that door?”
The king laughed and said: “You know, it’s funny, I offer everyone the same choice, and nearly everyone picks the rope.”
“So,” said the criminal, “Tell me. What’s behind the door? I mean, I won’t tell anyone,” he said, pointing to the noose around his neck.
The king paused then answered: “Freedom, but it seems most people are so afraid of the unknown that they immediately take the rope.”
Is fear getting in your way?
Is fear keeping you inside your comfort zone?
Does this self-talk track sound familiar?
- What if I fail?
- What if it does not work?
What is possible with a new self-talk track?
- What if it DOES work?
- What’s the worst thing that can happen?
- What steps can I take?
You see, nothing BIG happens when you wait. Nothing BIG happens when you stay inside your comfort zone.
Are you too comfortable being comfortable?
Is it time to re-design your comfort zone?
You can never become an expert in working for sale by owners; you’ll never get better at capturing expired listings; on-line leads; geography farming or open houses by staying comfortable. To become an expert in these things you must get comfortable being uncomfortable.
Eight steps to consider in getting more comfortable being uncomfortable:
- Take nothing for granted.
- Switch up your routine.
- Move toward your fears.
- Give up control.
- Try something new until you feel comfortable.
- Ask the questions that other people won’t ask.
- Start conversations with strangers, with more people.
- Agree to something you wouldn’t normally consider.
Fear is a natural and essential part of growth. Every time we consciously choose to step outside of our comfort zone, the next uncomfortable thing becomes a little bit easier.
What will you choose today the uneasiness of uncomfortableness or the comfort of the status quo?
