Set uncomfortable deadlines that you know you can achieve, but force you to push yourself harder and further each time.
Life outside my Comfort Zone is the most exhilarating and terrifying way to live.
So, since you’ll fritter away nine months anyway, why not cut them out of the process entirely?
Whether you’re trapped in your comfort zone or your book is trapped on Someday Island, the effect is the same. Your book will never get written, let alone published.
We will never learn or grow or do great things inside the comfort zone because our default state is always to do nothing.
Daring to be epic means stepping out of our comfort zone, forgetting what anyone else thinks or says about us, and doing the thing we know we must do to achieve our dreams.
Whether it’s writing a book, eating healthy or getting in your daily exercise, the not-so-secret solution remains the same.
The only way to truly help another person transform their life is to allow yourself to be open and vulnerable so they can see the truth of your story in them.
To write a book or accomplish any other lofty goal in life, we must do the uncomfortable thing. We must step outside our comfort zone.
Too often, we stay in soul-killing jobs because we can’t see any other option. Or we fail to do the thing we most want to do because we’re afraid.
So we do things we don’t want to do because it’s “safe” even if we despise it.
