Are you the type of person that feels overjoyed at achieving something for the first time? Last week I picked up the phone and spoke with my ex-boss, whom I don’t like very much!
Why did I do it, you ask? Well, I wanted to do something I was uncomfortable with.
You see, all successful people have one common factor: they purposefully step out of the confinements of their comfort zone so as to increase their self-confidence. In other words, do something they don’t like.
In step 4, under the sub-heading Inflate Your Comfort Zone to Reach Confidence, I wrote that for you to become confident and to attain more in life, you have to be prepared to step out and challenge your comfort zone; to dare yourself.
To get ahead in life, to follow through with your desires and dreams, increase your confidence by doing something you have not done before, or something you are uncomfortable with.
Start off by doing something simple. This is a sure way to acquire self-confidence. And what else? You will be overjoyed that you did that ‘something’. How cool is that?
