This is a lesson that took me a long time to learn. I have been in business for over ten years - first as a writer and now as a writer/online entrepreneur.
In the beginning, I put myself in uncomfortable situations all the time. Writing queries. Pitching clients. Visiting new forums or social groups. Networking. Learning SEO. Learning Wordpress. The list is quite vast.
Then, I got a bit stuck and kept doing the same things over and over gain. Consistency is good sometimes, but it isn't when trying to break through a barrier.
Yesterday was the first time in a long time that I learned a new skill. Today, I've stepped out of my comfort zone several times. It is empowering and I am finally making the progress I need to take things to the next level.
So, I just wanted to pass this along. If you're stuck - sometimes it takes getting uncomfortable for a time in order to make the next milestone.
Do you guys have any stories to share of how stepping out of a comfort zone helped you out?
