Actions speak louder than words. We can apologize over and over, but if our actions don’t change, the words become meaningless.

“Move out of your comfort zone. You can only grow if you are willing to feel awkward and uncomfortable when you try something new.”
One of the biggest reasons I get stuck in an idle state, instead of taking action to change my life for the better, is simply that the process is uncomfortable. But to create positive changes in my life I have to step outside my comfort zone, at least for a little while.
Rather than dismissing myself as unchangeable creature of habit, I can instead direct my own change by consciously developing new habits. In fact, the more new things I try – the more I step outside my comfort zone – the more inherently creative I will become, both in the workplace and in my personal life.
Routines stagnate me. New experiences help me grow and they make life interesting. Make an effort to try something new every day this week. It can be a whole new activity or just a small experience, such as talking to a stranger. And once I get the ball rolling, many of these new experiences will open doors to life changing opportunities.
With a strategy of continuous small steps into new experiences, I am able to sidestep the biggest barrier to positive change: Fear.
