There are so many times when you feel overworked and tired of running behind success but nothing seems to work. It’s just like that everything that you have done just doesn’t seem enough and work keeps demanding more. The goal that you have always dreamt about seems out of your reach only because you see a lot of hurdles along the way but you don’t want to let it go. Deep inside you know you can do it. Peak performance and discomfort go hand in hand- stepping out of your comfort zone makes you better, even if it is a simple task of emailing someone you don’t like. The uncomfortable things you start doing slowly seem easier and comfortable. It’s the everyday challenges that push your boundaries the most and can open new gates to success. Try getting a little uncomfortable if you have literally tried everything and maybe these things might help you to reach your goals. Here are some of the uncomfortable things that can make you more successful if taken up:
Getting up early
As difficult as it sounds, waking up early is one of the key elements to lead a productive day and get more tasks accomplished with more time and a fresh mind. It also gives you the opportunity to start your day with a good breakfast and some meditation to give you a kick-start.
Talk about getting uncomfortable with butterflies in your stomach. Whether its sales presentations or giving speeches to motivate your employees or pitching ideas to investors, you have to learn to speak publicly if you wish to succeed as an entrepreneur.
Taking blame and responsibility
It’s not easy to accept your mistakes and take responsibility for something that goes wrong in your business venture. You really have to get out of your comfort zone and take things in your hands to be a successful entrepreneur.
Networking and breaking the ice
Running a business will require you to build a network of professional people and try to initiate a conversation with somebody you don’t know. All these are essential tools to enhance connections and take your business to places.
Asking for advise
Getting valuable advice regarding certain aspects of your business will help you to make better decisions. The hard part is picking up the phone or emailing someone to ask for an opinion, but majority of the people will be honored to receive such requests. So take a step back and don’t hesitate to get a second opinion.
Apologizing for a mistake
Mistakes are bound to happen- whether it is a deadline you did not meet or you snapped at an employee for something, you have to learn how to apologize for your blunders. A sincere and a humble apology is not going to knock you over, in fact it will let others to respect you even more.
