In today’s episode, Anna looks at 5 things that will help you get comfortable with being uncomfortable as you step out of the corporate 9 to 5 and into the unknown.
Get comfortable with being uncomfortable
(1:54) “The very essence of your comfort zone is that it’s comfortable, and familiar. Everything in your life is set up to fit with how you are working and living now. Your colleagues and peers, your friends, your family – they all know you as you are now, and as you have been so far. It’s very hard within this environment to feel free to think and feel differently.”
(3:46) “Getting out of your comfort zone is, well, uncomfortable, and the tendency is always going to be to retreat back into what is familiar. In order for you to feel motivated to push through the pain of change, and for it all to be worthwhile, you need to know why you’re doing it.”
(7:37) “Consider the worst-case scenario, getting it down in black and white, so that you know what you’re really dealing with. Then it’s up to you to decide if you want to take the risk or not – but at least you know what that risk is!”
