How many times have you been told “nothing happens inside your comfort zone”???
How many times have you actually stepped outside your comfort zone?
It’s amazing, how something you KNOW you should be doing, you just don’t do.
And it’s not because you’re stupid.
It’s because you’re scared.
It’s not because you procrastinate.
It’s because you have resistance.
But if you’re pursuing a dream in Hollywood, you should be stepping outside of your comfort zone every single day.
Consistent, uncomfortable actions lead to results.
Here’re what often happens:
You take the HUGE LEAP to move to Los Angeles.
Months (sometimes years) pass by, and eventually LA starts to feel like home.
It starts to feel comfortable.
You start to get a feel for the industry, and how it works.
You pick a strategy and run with it.
It’s a little scary the first time you try the strategy, but pretty soon it becomes comfortable.
You think the hard part is over -- you took the leap to move here, and you think you’re done leaping.
It feels good to feel comfortable in this one strategy, so you keep doing it.
Even if it’s not working, or not getting you anywhere.
We all know the definition of insanity is doing the same thing over and over again and expecting a different result.
So why do you stick to these strategies when they aren’t working?
Here’s the thing--you’re NEVER done leaping.
You should be leaping every day.
Even if it scares the crap out of you.
That’s how BIG DREAMS are made.
Take a moment to reevaluate and ask yourself these questions:
When was the last time I stepped outside of my comfort zone?
What strategies are working? What aren’t?
Whatever got you here, to this very place, will not get you to the next level.
So what UNCOMFORTABLE actions can you start trying today?

When you push through and leap often, big things will start to happen.
