Complete One host tutorial on breaking out of the comfort zone
Newcastle-based direct sales and marketing specialists Complete One are advocates of entrepreneurship, and they argue that for people to experience extraordinary success exiting their comfort zone is imperative.
“Breaking down barriers and pushing yourself out of your comfort zone is a natural process for achieving personal and professional success,” commented Glen Lowes, Managing Director at Complete One. The award winning entrepreneur and business owner is passionate about developing aspiring entrepreneurs into successful businessmen and women and hosting educational workshops is a part of that.
- Switch up your routine
While routines can be beneficial for generating good results, routines also provide a comfort zone. One way for someone to start taking steps outside of their comfort zone is to make small changes to their routine each day. “It doesn’t require giant strides for someone to step outside of their comfort zone, it can be small changes such as walking a new route, going somewhere new for lunch or calling instead of emailing someone,” states Glen Lowes. Making these little seemingly insignificant changes can lead to meeting new people and seeing different sights, the business owner suggests.
- Face your fears
Complete One believes that when someone faces their fears and tackles challenges that instil fear, those things have the greatest potential to expand their life, opening new doors and acting as a catalyst on their road to success. “Fear is just a four letter word. When someone gets the courage to face their fears, the exhilaration and sense of achievement is tremendous,” commented Mr Lowes.
- Give up control
Many aspiring entrepreneurs are control freaks, and the prospect of delegation is uncomfortable for them argues Complete One. While for some, giving up control can be a scary thought, allowing someone else to take over certain tasks can be hugely beneficial.
- Don’t be afraid to fail
People are so scared of failure that they are unwilling to take on any challenges that could end in defeat. Complete One believes that failures should not be viewed as negatives, and instead, people need to use them as learning experiences. “Failure is a precious learning experience and should be used as a teacher. While no one ever wants to fail, the lessons it can teach can prove hugely beneficial,” commented Mr Lowes.
- Ask tough questions
The only way to keep progressing is to keep learning and developing and asking tough questions is key. Effective communication is critical for business success and having open and honest conversations can help to break out of a comfort zone. “Sometimes, to move forward, tough questions need to be asked, and by addressing real issues, it will enable growth.
- Start conversations with strangers
For some, striking up conversations with strangers can be incredibly daunting. Complete One believes that starting conversations with strangers is a great way to overcome shyness and to meet new people, who could potentially become vital business connections.
