      Don't Get Too Comfortable, If You Want To Succeed
      By Ken Leonard Jr.

      Break away from the usual to get what you want. It sounds easy.
      For a lot of people, it is not. They want the future of their
      dreams, but can't bring themselves to do the things that will get
      them there.

      Many people are stuck in a "comfort zone", a place where there
      are no surprises, no difficulties, just the same old same old,
      day after day. These people have become complacent, satisfied
      with what they have right now. Unfortunately, this leads to
      living an unfulfilling life. "In a rut", some would say. Being
      afraid of change really limits what you can accomplish. Living in
      a comfort zone stops you from trying new things. Trying to run a
      business while staying in your comfort zone is a total waste of
      time and effort.

      Succeeding in a small business of any kind means doing things
      that other people are not willing to do. The person that
      overcomes the competition to be around in the long run will not
      be married to their comfort zones. Everyone has one, the question
      is "Are you willing to leave yours from time to time?".

      Getting out of your comfort zone means expecting and welcoming
      change. This is good, because in business, if you can't change,
      you're dead. People that are like this love to experiment and try
      new things and ideas. That's what marketing is all about, folks.
      These are the ones more likely to succeed with a home-based
      business, or any small business. They lead rich (not necessarily
      financially), fulfilling lives, reaping the fruits of what they
      have sown. They succeed in business, and always get more than the
      average person. They deserve to. They do what others won't.

      You may think that it's really not that easy to do. How DO you
      take that step out of your comfort zone? First, you have to be
      confident of yourself. Know that you CAN do anything, with the
      right attitude and effort. Get in the habit of doing things which
      are not easy for you. By this I mean things that make you feel
      uncomfortable or uneasy. You can start small, but overcoming
      fears about your ability and the unknown will let you accomplish
      anything you want! You must take that first step, though. Don't
      put it off. Take action where action is needed. Bite the bullet
      and do it. You'll be glad you did.

      After you have taken action, the problem will seem smaller than
      it did before. You have just witnessed the benefits of breaking
      out of your comfort zone. The next time you have a difficult task
      ahead of you, don't let the fear of the unknown be a factor. Each
      time you confront your fears and insecurities, it will get that
      much easier to do. And your confidence will grow.

      Leaving your comfort zones behind is one of the most important
      lessons you will ever learn. It is one that will help you again
      and again, letting you be creative and eager to test new ideas
      without being afraid of failing. Success comes from taking
      calculated risks, not by living in a bubble and hoping for the
      best. It often takes many failures to become a success. Always
      remember that.

      Break out of your comfort zone, and Make It Happen for you!
