5 Ways to Step Out of Your Comfort Zone and Achieve Amazing Success



comfort zone

Do, you feel stuck? Do you think you haven’t done enough to achieve your goals? It’s probably because you’ve been staying in your comfort zone for too long. When you don’t challenge yourself or make concrete steps towards success, you’ll always be stranded wherever you are in your life or career. Growth happens when you do what is necessary even when it’s uncomfortable. Success is a result of that growth.

Here are a 5 ways towards transforming your life and taking the leap to advance your career:

1. Acknowledge Your Behavior and Make Changes

A lot of people go to great lengths to avoid unpleasant situations that require them to face their anxieties. How many times have you had to pass up on opportunities that seem too daunting, even when you have the means to do it successfully? We have all been there, and it’s always challenging to conquer these fears every time.

It can be agonizing when you let self-doubt and fear simmer in your thoughts. Anyone can be discouraged thinking of the worst possible outcome to every situation. People have different ways of getting over their nervousness. If you haven’t figured it out for yourself, try putting yourself in a situation where you can no longer escape it.

When you find yourself balking at these chances again, set yourself up to do what needs to get done. Put yourself in a position that will give you no other choice but to go through it. More often than not, the sheer desire to just get it over with will compel you to finally act. That’s when you go for it.

How can you start doing this? Start small. Whether it’s making a cold call or speaking to a crowd, we all have our mountains to climb. You have to stand at the foot of it, acknowledge its massiveness, and make your way up.

“Obstacles don’t have to stop you. If you run into a wall, don’t turn around and give up. Figure out how to climb it, go through it, or work around it.” – Michael Jordan

2. Do What Successful People Do Every Day

There’s no other way around it. Who else can teach you how to attain success better than people who have already done it? Learning from people like Bill Gates, Warren Buffett, and Oprah Winfrey will show you that you have to focus on self-improvement.

Have you heard of the five-hour rule? This rule has you set aside an hour every day for practice or learning. For most successful people, the five-hour rule falls into three applications: reading, reflection, and experimentation.

You can allot one hour per day to develop a reading habit and keep learning. You can also use that time to think, play with ideas, write in a journal, or do any kind of self-reflection that works for you. You can also use it to create and test things and figure out methods and systems that work.

What will you get out of the five-hour rule? You gain new skills. These skills will give you a great work advantage. That’s what you will apply in your field to achieve success. Living a life of continuous learning will help you lead a fruitful and healthy life.

3. Seek Inspiration Everywhere

Taking your cue from the reflection exercise of the five-hour rule, you have to find things that fuel your passion. There are a lot of great online platforms that allow you to expand your horizon in just a few clicks. Some people look for motivational speaking videos like talks and keynote speeches. Others go for inspiring memes and quotes from notable personalities.

Whatever it is that inspires you, go and find it. It could be taking a walk outside and being one with nature. For others it is having coffee and watching people pass by. My dad likes observing a craftsman while he creates a work of art. Let the buzz of people milling about or doing what they do best motivate you. Bring your work out to the world.

Stepping out of your comfort zone entails bravery and determination. Work towards finding inspiration from others to do it. Someday, you might be able to inspire and pass it forward.

“A year or so ago I went through all the people in my life and asked myself: does this person inspire me, genuinely love me and support me unconditionally? I wanted nothing but positive influences in my life.” – Mena Suvari

4. Get Ideas From Case Studies

Not all case studies are truthful, but they make sense. You don’t have to believe every word or insight. Instead, use it to fuel your own ideas. Look up case studies that are related to your industry. Research practices that work. Whether it’s from direct competitors or companies with the same target market, you have plenty to learn.

Platforms like Facebook and Amazon have a wealth of case studies that you can go through. Find out what works from companies that stand out in their respective markets. See how they managed to reach more audiences for growth. Digest them and take the best out of each one and apply them to your own business when you can.

Use these ideas to challenge yourself. When you can’t find what you need, keep looking until you hit the jackpot and come up with your own million dollar idea. If these businesses made it, why can’t yours?

5. Take Back Your Weekends

People who hustle often think that weekends are no different from work days. That’s where they’re terribly wrong. Weekends are your opportunity to relax and focus. Downtime is also important, especially when you work hard through the week. This is important – use it to bring you to your center.

Taking time out on weekends to reconnect with family and friends, pursue interests, and plan for the coming week helps you stay refreshed for the week ahead. Connecting with people keeps you focus on what’s important. At the end of the day, you have to remember what matters.

Keep yourself fit and stay strong. Clear your head and prepare to get new ideas. What you do on weekends matters, so continue investing in yourself and keep growing.

Stay motivated and focused using the five hour rule and these tips. Until next time…

How to Break the Cycles of Mediocrity and Manifest Your Greatness

There is no greatness without becoming and there is no becoming with authenticity



Image Credit: Midjourney

In just a few weeks, we will be wrapping up 2023. Can you believe it? This year has been absolutely incredible for me.

I have seen amazing doors opened, new relationships formed and I am seeing dreams realized in my life. While this seems like the hallmarks of a great year, this has also been the most challenging year of my life. With all of the change happening in my life, I have been forced out of my comfort zone and challenged to grow in every area of my life.

I can truly say that I have made the most of my moments this year and I have used everything as a catalyst for maximizing my greatest potential.

As a revolutionary leader, I have the pleasure of consulting and advising leaders around the world to fulfill purpose, realize their greatest potential and make an impact.

I want to share some insights with you that will help you to break cycles of mediocrity and manifest your greatness

Everything legal must come through the matrix

I am sure that some of you are wondering why I am using the term matrix. However, what you have to understand is that I am trying to make a highly complex spiritual principle practical to understand.

Regardless of your spiritual beliefs, every life has an origin and I believe that origin is divine and begins with eternity. You are birthed from eternity and into time to fulfill a unique purpose and assignment in your lifetime and generation.

The matrix is simply the portal or vehicle that brings something out of the invisible realm and into tangible form. The problem with much of the teaching today is that it excludes the matrix. We are told to believe that success is instantaneous and overnight.

Nobody talks about how a dream progresses through stages beginning with visualization and ultimately culminating in manifestation. Without a matrix or portal then everything that you attempt to birth and build will be illegal.

The matrix not only makes you legal but it gives you the authority and power to function as the greatest expression of who you were created to be. 

Every matrix has an incubation process

While many people admire and respect me today, I remember a time when nobody knew who I was or the significance of my message. How did I get to where I am today? I got here through an incubation process.

In other words, everything that has been destined for your life is incubating and awaiting a set time of manifestation. The problem is that most people live their entire lives idle and never initiate the incubation process.

What do I meany by that? Most people are living reckless and very few people are living intentionally. I am amazed at the number of people I have conversations with that have no vision, goals or strategies for their lives. They show great promise and they have undeniable potential.

However, without development they will die with their dreams still in them.

Everything that has been destined for your life must be incubated and converted to become realities born to time. 

“Visualize this thing that you want, see it, feel it, believe in it. Make your mental blueprint and begin to build.” – Robert Collier

You must give expression to that which is not yet born to time

When you think about a matrix or a prophetic incubation process, you have to understand that potential is often unrealized and untapped. In other words, your potential is in raw form and your potential cannot serve you as long as it is untapped.

The thing that makes me valuable is that I have the ability to convert potential into power. I have done it in my own life and I have empowered leaders around the world to do the same. How do you convert potential into power?

First, it is important to note that you have to perceive potential. If you cannot perceive your potential then you can never cultivate your potential. In addition, you must take the time to cultivate your potential. We often get excited about our capabilities; however, we never expand our capacity in order to realize our greatest potential.

In other words, the strength of your potential is only discovered through your willingness to stretch. The more we are challenged the more we are empowered to expand our capacity for greatness. Most of all, you must begin to express your potential. The expression of potential is different for every person.

For example, the expression of my potential is best demonstrated through the thoughts, ideas, products, services, books, etc.

For another person the expression of potential may look like a screenplay, artwork, sports, scientific discoveries, medical breakthroughs, etc.

Regardless of the form of expression, I know that you will live empty and unfulfilled until you make the decision to express your potential. The expression of your potential gives voice to your dreams, life to your vision, significance to your moments and activates your true power.

You must manifest your greatness

As a revolutionary thinker and leader, my work has impacted people around the world. I am grateful that my life is a source of empowerment to so many people. However, before anyone could ever benefit from my life, I had to make a non-negotiable decision to become who I was born to be.

I wish I could tell you that this journey is easy and that you will get there overnight. However, in a world that celebrates us for doing we are often criticized for being. As a result, I wasted a lot of time trying to be who other people wanted me to be instead of being who I was born to be.

There is no greatness without becoming and there is no becoming with authenticity. It is through our bravery to be vulnerable that we ultimately manifest our greatness. We do not bless the world by being a duplicate. We bless the world when we honor our difference. When you honor your difference you honor your potential.

Ultimately, your difference is how you manifest your greatness.

When you present anything but your authentic self to the world, you are playing small and you are robbing the world of your significance. Manifesting your greatness requires you to master your gifts.

Let’s be honest, we’ve all crossed paths with a toxic leader in our careers at some point. Unfortunately, while some toxic leaders don’t even bother to hide their behaviour, some know very well how to conceal their true selves behind a strong-built facade. The latter is the most dangerous of the two. (more…)
