We’ve been talking a little about the Book, called you2 by Price Pritchett. This tiny book contains 18 principles that can help you have a quantum leap your life.
Today I want to talk about his principle titled Get Uncomfortable.
We all have a comfort zone. Our comfort zone is the life that we have known. And oddly enough, we’re comfortable with some of the things that we also really don’t like. We actually allow ourselves to keep repeating things that we don’t really like.
We are not really in love with our life being a certain way, but it’s comfortable. It’s known. It’s a safe zone. There’s actually a magnetic field, which is almost like gravity that will pulls us right back to that comfort zone even though we don’t like it.
Price Pritchett says,
Quantum leaps jerk you out of our comfort zone.
Prepare yourself for a pretty wild ride. You’re going to cover some unfamiliar terrain and encounter obstacles you’ve never faced before. It can feel like the safety chain linking you with behavior patterns that worked in the past is being stretched to the limit. At times you may wonder if the situation is about to spin out of control.
Notice something… you’re moving from 110 energy to 220. There’s a rewiring process, which takes time to learn. You’re going to be uncomfortable.
The next level of your good is not inside the amount of good you’ve known before. Your ideas of your quantum leap are ideas of life wanting to express and experience more of that good and that possibility. So your old ideas are not proportional to the life that’s seeking to move forward to have this quantum leap.
The great news about this is that it’s not like, “Oh, I have to go build my dream!” Instead, it’s more like “Ah, I LOVE this!” You want to pinch yourself and say, “I LOVE my life!” That is what this is about.
Price Pritchett says,
The normal reaction is to want to hold on tightly. But you’re going to have to learn to let go. You2 is achieved through release.
So turn loose if you want to jump.
Don’t be surprised if you grow uneasy – that’s a predictable part of the process. When you take the quantum leap, you ride the situation, but you don’t really control it all that much. In fact, the only way you control it is by (1) knowing where you’re going, (2) continuing the pursuit, and (3) learning from your mistakes.
You know the destination in mind. You refuse to give up or intimidated by situations, conditions or circumstances. You continue to be in the pursuit, and you learn from every mistake.
When Edison was asked, “How did you survive 10,000 mistakes on your way to making the light bulb,” he said, “I never had a failure. It was all feedback.”

Let’s have some conversation!

p.s. If you’re experiencing no anxiety or discomfort, the risk you’re taking probably isn’t worthy of you. The only risks that aren’t a little scary are the ones you’ve outgrown. A high comfort level provides solid evidence that you’re “playing it safe,” not growing, not really testing your limits at all, and not in the process of a quantum leap.
If you are happy in a business, that is great. If you are looking for the right business with a marketing system already in place that works; the right mentor; something you can build online, I would love to share what I am doing with you. Click here and let’s explore the possibilities.
