Work From Home -
When working from home it may be difficult for you to step out of your comfort zone. While most people achieve this when they actually begin to work from home as opposed to a stable, traditional job, you may soon find that you are holding yourself back from advancing simply because you fear the unknown. Stepping out of your comfort zone allows you to really expand your horizons and you may be surprised at what you may accomplish.
When you do not assert yourself, you are basically stepping back and allowing life to happen to you. What you should be doing is forcing your life to bend to your will. Stepping out of your comfort zone will allow you to make room for growth in your business as well as your personal life. Seeking the constant approval of your peers leaves you no room for personal initiative. You have to break free from the constraints of your comfort zone and begin to really push yourself to achieve success.
Constantly hanging on to what you feel is secure or safe can lead to depression as well as anxiety, doubt and even fear. Imagine if your stable work from home job suddenly was no longer stable. What would you do if you were pushed to explore other opportunities? These are things that you should consider. Working from home or running a home business is an excellent opportunity but you have to be willing to accept responsibility for creating your own future. Your home business could be semi-successful but if you never step out of your comfort zone and push yourself to success, then lukewarm success is all that you will ever enjoy.
As you begin to create positive affirmations, thinking outside the box will come more easily to you. Take the time and determine what it is that you really want to accomplish. You may even take some time to write these goals down, ensuring that you are using first person. For instance, say things like “I will be making six figures” or “I will purchase new office equipment within the year”. Allow these positive affirmations to convince you that these things will happen. Studies have shown that repeating positive thoughts to yourself on a daily basis will reprogram the way that you think. You will soon begin to automatically conjure up positive thoughts.
Perhaps most importantly, you should give yourself a timeframe for reaching your goals. Anytime that you deal with the physical aspect of life you need to have a timeframe. If you were building a new house, you would certainly have a timeframe in mind for each step of the process. Setting a timeframe for reaching your goals is important. Keep in mind that venturing beyond your comfort zone is going to take some time and likely a lot of effort. You can however, begin to stretch your home business into new avenues if you simply make a positive effort to do so. Don’t let yourself talk you out of reaching these goals. Your comfort zone is fine for some things. Business is not one of those things. If you are going to be successful in home business then you have to be ready to get outside of your area of comfort and work toward your area of success.
