“You need to get out of your comfort zone,” the leader says. But, inside our heads we tell ourselves something else. “I don’t know my way around this place. I could get lost. I don’t know how to do these things. I’m going to make a mistake. Others will see me and I will be embarrassed.” These are just some of the many fears going through our minds.
It’s simply fear that holds us back. Fear is a good thing when it helps us avoid mortal danger. That’s rational. However, a fear of trying something new simply because we have not yet mastered the skill or learned our way around is not.
Yes, we will likely make some mistakes when we try something new. It’s not only OK, it’s expected. This is part of the learning process.
We have to help clients push out of their comfort zones every day. We teach them how to reach out to people they don’t know and start a conversation. We help them find the key people, their contact information and even craft the verbiage for them. Our clients build incredible networks and open new doors to opportunity on a regular basis because they can overcome these fears.
The best part is that someone is there with them every step of the way.
