    All the Success You Want Lies Just Outside Your Comfort Zone

    All the Success You Want Lies Just Outside Your Comfort Zone

    Is there something in your business or your life that you want but don’t currently have? If so, then I’m here to tell you that the most likely reason you don’t yet have it is that you are unwilling to get truly uncomfortable. Today on the podcast, I talk all about getting outside your comfort zone and how doing this actually determines your level of success.



    All the Success You Want Lies Just Outside Your Comfort Zone



    Here’s a look at what I discuss in this episode:



    * Are there things in your business or your life that you want, but currently don’t have? The reason you don’t have them yet is that you’re unwilling to get uncomfortable.

    * What is your personal comfort zone?

    * What happens when we stretch ourselves beyond what we think we can do or achieve?

    * How to get yourself out of your personal comfort zone and move into discomfort where all the growth happens.

    * Why you need to start embracing the uncomfortable…every day.

Helpful doesn’t compare to what you get

Patrick literally breaks everything down for you. I had no idea about “Branding”. I was referred to him and my views about my business have now changed and I have realized why branding isn’t important, I’ve learned why it’s vital! I am currently listening to the 21 Days to Build a Better Brand and I’m on day 8 and have only been listening to this for 3 days now. I’m powering through it and am being a sponge. He has so much great information that has been more useful than anything else I have read! Thank you so much for the great content and all the help you give!

Aclipse Campervans ,

Incredible resource!

Each podcast is invaluable! As a new entrepreneur, I was overwhelmed by the idea of creating a brand and marketing strategy. Patrick breaks down and prioritizes tasks, into actionable steps, to get you going on creating a meaningful brand that will connect to your customer. If you are looking to build your brand, I highly suggest listening to 21 Days to Build a Better Brand from the beginning. I often listen in the car and end up going back over the show notes to think through the ideas more deeply. I can’t recommend this podcast enough!

Organizing By Mushky ,

Wow!!!

I’m so grateful that I found these podcasts! I’m learning so much every day and finally feel empowered to work on my brand one step at a time! I’m gaining new tools every day!! Thank you so much for giving us this amazing guidance!!
