Giving 100% and Stepping Outside One’s Comfort Zone: Two Essentials for Success

Developing a successful mentality is an integral part of the management training program at LNE Consulting in Hollywood, FL. Here, we will share two quotes that speak to the philosophies that are most important at our firm.

“A person should set his goals as early as he can and devote all his energy and talent to getting there. With enough effort, he may achieve it. Or he may find something that is even more rewarding. But in the end, no matter what the outcome, he will know he has been alive.” – Walt Disney

The most important part of this quote is where Disney talks about devoting all of your energy to a goal. Anyone who has ever accomplished something major will tell you that it’s all about giving it your all. When you keep your back doors open and don’t fully commit to seeing something through, you’ll find that your likelihood of success shrinks dramatically. As Disney said, when you give 100% to your goal, you’ll either achieve it, or you’ll discover something even greater. The key is to go all in if anything is going to be worth your while.

“Sometimes, I shake if I have to do something that I’ve never done before –– maybe not noticeably, but inside. But I’ll do it, because I know it’s not an insurmountable task; I’ve done plenty of tasks in my life.” – Martha Stewart

Say what you will about Martha Stewart, but you have to admit that she’s a well-accomplished woman who’s accumulated a lot of wisdom in her day. This quote is all about comfort zones. As we like to say at LNE Consulting, it’s about getting comfortable being uncomfortable.

It’s totally normal to feel timid when it comes to trying something new. It’s important to realize, though, that living outside of your comfort zone is almost like exercising a muscle: the more you do it, the stronger you become. If you get in the habit of pushing yourself, you’ll develop confidence that only comes from accomplishing the thing you thought you couldn’t.
