I’m a big fan of listening to your intuition.
But what happens when you want to accomplish something meaningful that requires you to go outside of your comfort zone?
The Resistance kicks in. You procrastinate. You play it safe.
It’s especially true if things are going reasonably well for you already. Loss aversion is no joke.
That’s because your brain craves comfort. And as well-meaning as it is, we can’t always listen to it’s demands.
As Jim Kwik says:
“Life is hard for two reasons: because you are choosing to leave your comfort zone or because you decided you’re staying in it.”
If you want to have a better chance of succeeding at your aspirational goals, try one of two things:
- Connect with a group of your peers whom you trust to push you when you need to be pushed.
- Find someone who’s taken the path before and is willing to give you the nudges you need.
Whatever you decide, don’t go it alone.
