"Getting Out Of The Comfort Zone!"

Written by Wes Blaylock

There is one thing that can easily put a damper on your business' growth, and it is calledrepparttar comfort zone.

Actually, this can not only put a hold on a businesses growth, but also on starting a business in general.

By comfort zone, I meanrepparttar 101974 fact that most people inrepparttar 101975 world today are too "comfortable" in their current situation to do what it takes to makerepparttar 101976 amount of money that they want to make.

They aren't willing to do what it takes to succeed because they are finerepparttar 101977 way they are now.

And this doesn't just pertain to business or Internet marketing. This is for every aspect of life. Why are people overweight? Because they are too comfortable being in that weight and eating fatty foods to do what it takes to become their ideal weight. They may not admit being comfortable, but they are.

Have you ever tried to eat a no fat diet? It isn't easy, but most people are too comfortable eating cookies and ice cream to go on a no fat diet and lose repparttar 101978 weight. This is just an example of course, but it proves my point.

Most average people work a 9-5 job, have a family and are making it by. They may not be rich, but they put food onrepparttar 101979 table and pay their bills.

This is enough work for most people and they are not willing to give up their "off" time to make more money.

And by all means, that is fine, but for those of us who DO want to make tons of money, we have to constantly find ways to get out of this comfort zone and progress consistently.
