If you are operating inside of your comfort zone you are operating inside of what you already know and do and consequently you will continue to get the same results you already have. To achieve and accomplish any worthwhile and ambitious goal requires that you step outside of your comfort zone. This often involves wrestling the knowledge and subconscious thoughts programmed within, having a willingness to examine new ideas and ways of being, and stepping out in action to execute the steps commensurate with your goals. Your subconscious thoughts are a reflection of your former external stimuli which you have internalized over time and created “truths” around: upbringing, surroundings, education, choices, religion and the decisions we made about those experiences. If these stimuli or experiences produce self-limiting beliefs, the obvious result will be unwittingly imposed limitations to your performance and consequent natural inhibitors of your exponential growth and breakthrough performance. Examine this thought: You may have to let go of some of your past influences to really, truly get ahead and produce a breakthrough in your life. How willing are you? Share some of your past inhibitors to your progress, that must be let go and what actions you need to begin to take for you to truly excel?
