If you want the opportunity to knock, it's time to build a door.
It’s easy to get stuck in the same routine of comfortability. Stepping outside of your comfort zone and trying something new can be intimidating, but in order to grow you must challenge yourself. Start by setting goals for yourself that are realistic and achievable. Whether it’s a short-term or long-term goal, having something specific to work towards will help keep you motivated.
Everything you’ve ever wanted is one step outside your comfort zone.
It’s also important to recognize the small victories along the way. Celebrating your successes will help keep you motivated and hold yourself accountable. The new year is also a great time to network and build connections. Reach out to people in your industry or those who have similar interests. You never know when those connections could lead to new opportunities.
If you look at people in your circle and don’t get inspired, you have a cage.
Finally, don’t be afraid to take risks. The fear of loss when taking risks doesn’t align with an entrepreneurial mindset. Entrepreneurs never lose money, they invest in knowledge and experience. Have you spent money without a return? Yes and no. That money is gone and you didn’t make it back, but you gained experience and knowledge that may better serve you in the future. Don’t be afraid to fail – use those experiences as learning opportunities and keep pushing forward.
