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.
We don’t turn our dreams into reality by working really hard one day and doing nothing for six days.
We turn our dreams into reality by working our plan, our Roadmap for Success, daily.
Fears of all kinds can paralyze us.
Fear of success.
Fear of failure.
Fear of the unknown.
Fear around not knowing what to do because you’ve never done this before.
Nothing great in life is ever achieved without taking risks, and to turn your dreams of writing a book into reality requires that you take risks.
