The easy path is to keep doing what we have always done, that’s the safe way, we know what to do, we know what is expected of us, and we know what results we will get. But if we keep doing this, there will be very little, or slow growth.
As Henry Ford famously said:
““If You Always Do What You've Always Done, You'll Always Get What You've Always Got.” ~ Henry Ford
The road that is a bit more challenging is to step outside our comfort zone and try something new/ different. This maybe going to the gym, it maybe getting a personal trainer, it maybe taking up a new sport or activity. Initially it is daunting and intimidating. You are starting from scratch, you are a begineer/ novice. Here are three tips for overcoming the nerves and making the first step:
1. Just do it! As the Nike slogan says, just do it! Don’t keep putting it off, don’t keep prograstinating! Pick up the phone and call the person or place you want to start and make an appointment
2. Start small/ Be realistic Better to start small with realistic goal, rather than be expecting miraculous results immediately. For example, if you haven’t done much running before and you want to take up running, better to not sign up for a marathon in a week or a month, but much better approach would be to join coach to 5K group. That way you will build upto 5K over a number of weeks
3.Ask/ get support One of the best ways of stepping outside your comfort zone and taking on somethimg new is to ask for support e.g go to someone who teaches or coaches what you want to learn and get good at. So if you want to get stronger and fitter, go to a personal trainer. They will show you the proper way to do things and coach you along the way. That way your progress is faster, and there is a higher likelihood you will keep at it.
