It's so easy to stay in our comfort zones.
I can tell myself, “I'll just send out this little email and hope that the right people read it and then my business will explode.”
Twiddles thumbs. Taps toes. Still waiting. Have you done the same?
You can keep on waiting, but others are pushing themselves more and will be heard more. More people will find them because they took big leaps.
It's not easy to get out of our comfort zones. In fact, it's freaking scary. But gues what, it's scary for every single person on the planet. Our brains are wired to keep us safely doing what we've always done in hopes of protecting us. It's instinct.
But I know you want more and you do not want to get bored in your business. You want growth. You want reach. You want to continue to find that perfect person that needs you.
Which means you must do something different to get to something more.
AHHHH, I'm amping myself up just typing all of this.
Two years ago I commited fully to doing the Stretch Yourself challenge. And I NAILED it. The motivation I got from that 30 day group coaching challenge led me to continue to stretch out of my comfort zone. I didn't stop with the challenges I completed that September. Each new challenge I completed and saw results from pushed me to grab another one and see how I could get the butterfies again by stepping across that line in the sand my mind had set about what I could accomplish.
Last year, I was a HELL YES to blowing it out of the water again. AND I DID!
Even better results. Video is no longer something that makes me cringe. Bring it on, make up or no make up lol I'm happy to share my words. I stopped feeling lame about asking for testimonials and happily ask for my clients and customers experiences. I SPOKE LIVE AT AN EVENT! WHAT?!!!
Kelly adds new challenges each year and I'm eyeballing which one's I will be doing. I will be doing some of the older challenges again because I know I can take them to the next level. I'm comfortable on video, but I have not been as intentional with my Facebook Lives as I could be. So this year my big goal is purposely choosing challenges that will build on each other for my marketing.
My for sure Stretch Yourself Challenge commitments for 2020:
- Start a Facebook Group – Yes, I have done this. But this will be for a new partnership and I'm going to plan it out correctly instead of jumping without thought.
- Host a Facebook Live Series – THIS is my important one that I want to set up purposefully to use in evergreen ways to promote my next workshop.
- Make an Intentional Connection – Thanks to my podcast I've been getting a stream of new contacts, but I haven't had to reach out to find them. I need to make a list and do some intentional connections.
What if I nail it again this year and my marketing is all making sense and bringing in more people who are just waiting to find me? PERFECTION
What if you get out of your comfort zone and do things you have no idea you have in you? What would it look like to step it up and dig more to push your business to the next level? The results of your efforts will be amazing, but you won't know unless you try.
Each year this challenge is held live in September, but it's open year around for self-study. Even as a self-study, you can join us in the forums to get support as you stretch out of your comfort zone.
This challenge event could easily sell for $100's, but Kelly loves keeping the price affordable so we can watch you kick butt.
