SCARE YOURSELF INTO LEARNING. | Empire Street Style

Think back to the times you learned the most in your life.  Were these moments that you did something different and stepped outside your comfort zone or moments where you did the same old thing?  Make a habit of doing something that scares the hell out of you on a regular basis. Take chances. Say yes. Close your eyes and take a leap. I guarantee you’ll be glad you did.

When you put yourself in an unfamiliar situation you create a unique memory for yourself and establish an opportunity to learn something you may have never even known existed.  Think about all the things you know now.  There was a time you didn’t know they existed at all. Now, think about all the things you know you don’t know and take it even a step further and think about the things you don’t know you don’t know. That’s a lot of stuff. The point is you can only get so far sticking to what you know. Real learning is done through action and doing things that you never thought you would do. The problem is too often people get caught up on the dreaded “what if”. What if it doesn’t work out? What if I fail? What if they think the idea is stupid? What most people fail to recognize is the other piece to that “what if”. What if it does work out, what if you succeed, and what if they think the idea is great. Why not spin the “what if” in a positive way. The worst that can happen is you’ve learned something you can build upon.  Not so bad.

So the next time an opportunity comes up that makes you feel uneasy or scared; seize it. It may just be one of the best decisions you make.
