Outside Your Comfort Zone

First, it’s important to draw a clear line between three major areas. These areas are your comfort zone, stretch zone, and panic zone.

“You don’t get off the couch and then run the 5K.” – Andy Molinsky on the idea of becoming better

Start with something that is challenging but meaningful. Second, try to understand the things that are holding you back from achieving your better version.

Common Success Factors

First, figure out your why. What is your purpose for wanting to step out? In his book, he’s interviewed people from different backgrounds, professions, and situations.

“If you can live your life from the want perspective, you’re probably going to be happier and more successful.” – Andy Molinsky

According to Andy, having a conviction is one key to success. It is one common factor among successful people. It gave them the strength to push through despite the discomfort.

About Jaime Jay

Meet Jaime Jay – a man who wears many hats, and wears them all admirably. He's a master connector, an entrepreneur extraordinaire, and a published author who knows how to get things done.

Before he found his way to the business world, Jaime served his country as a brave paratrooper in the U.S. Army. But that's just the beginning of his many accomplishments.

He's the founder of the renowned Bottleneck Distant Assistant Services firm, and his book "Quit Repeating Yourself" has become a must-read for entrepreneurs everywhere.

When he's not busy building his empire, you can find him on his beloved Harley Davidson, cruising through the countryside and taking in the invigorating effects of Uitwaaien – a Dutch practice that involves facing the wind to boost health and relieve stress.

He enjoys spending his free time outside building stuff with his wife, Nikita the dog and their two kittens (for now at least) Tommy and Tater.

He is ‘over-the-moon’ happily married to his wonderful wife Sara, his amazing daughter, Jessica, who is serving our country as a United States Army soldier. Jaime and Sara are the proud grand parents of two beautiful little girls.
