Tips to help you out of your comfort zone

We all have our insecurities, doubts, and stubborn moments.  Don’t be afraid to say ‘yes’ once in a while.  If you’re someone who needs a little push, here are some tips for stepping outside of your comfort zone:

1. Be Confident, But Not Cocky

Stepping outside of your comfort zone can even mean showing off your good side, which means showing your confidence. But remember, being confident and cocky are two different things. 

2. Admit You’re Wrong

No one is perfect. Admitting you’re wrong and accepting your flaws is tough, and it’s supposed to be. In our digital age we forget that our lives aren’t always picture perfect as our Instagrams make them seem, don’t we?

You might be frustrated when they happen, but later on you’ll be thankful and laugh it off.

3. Take Risks

Mark Zuckerberg, founder of Facebook, said “The biggest risk is not taking any risk… In a world that’s changing really quickly, the only strategy that is guaranteed to fail is not taking risks.”

We turn heads the wrong way at work because we’re “too young” or “haven’t had enough experience” in order to excel. There’s nothing wrong with taking the risk with an idea and going with it! Most likely, those risks will turn out for the best because you followed your gut instinct. Those risks will help turn heads for the right reasons.

4. Be Yourself

Don’t be afraid to be yourself. 

There are times when we ‘people please.’ It’s pretty unavoidable for most of us. People pleasing is a big phenomenon for twenty-somethings because we want everyone to like us. It’s time for some real talk about stepping outside of your comfort zone and being true to your ‘normal self.’

Wise words from Howard Walstein, “Do something uncomfortable today. By stepping out of your box, you don’t have to settle for what you are- you get to create who you want to become.”
