YOUR Comfort Zone with Richard McCann.

This is an important blog post about you and your comfort zone.

But first I want to share with you one of my favourite quotes on this subject…

“I’ve learned in my life that it’s important to be able to step outside your comfort zone and be challenged with something you’re not familiar with or accustomed to. That challenge will allow you to see what you can do.” – J.R Martinez

A lot of people stay in their comfort zones daily, and I don’t blame them, it’s comfy 😉

But real growth only happens when you step outside your comfort zone.

And that is exactly what a former student of the ‘iCan Bootcamp’ did recently straight after stepping outside his comfort zone.

Let me explain…

Kamal attended the ‘iCan Speak’ Bootcamp on 21st March.

He did so because for the last 15 years he’s been haunted by a presentation that he gave.

By his own admission, he tried avoiding presentations and speaking in public whenever he could, but when he had to he’d always been extremely anxious and petrified that he was about to bomb just like he did all those years ago!

In fact he shared at bootcamp that he knows that it has hindered his progression in the finance sector where he works.

But finally he decided to step outside of his comfort zone and speak in public.

This is what he sent me:

“Hi Richard,

So, I ran the finance workshop on Tuesday, and had to present to around 20 non-finance colleagues and explain investment appraisal to them. On top of that I had to do it for 90 minutes, straight after lunch!

I’m pleased to say it couldn’t have gone any better! Even when I accidentally kicked the power cable and the projector turned off….I simply stayed calm and asked my colleague to fix it while I carried on without my slides!

The audience’s participation was amazing; every single one of them was engaged and seemed to really enjoy it. I even over ran by 10 minutes into their break, but they didn’t seem to care, they would have happily sat there for another 90 minutes (well maybe not quite 90 mins!)

I hope you are sitting down, because you won’t believe what happened at the end….I still don’t!! When I finished, and I apologised for over running and said I hope they found it useful…..They all got up and clapped…I got a standing ovation!!! Yes, me!!

There were too many great moments to share with you on email, but I just wanted to share a few and say I couldn’t have done as well as I did if I hadn’t attended the Bootcamp.”

Pretty amazing results right?

This only happened because of two things.

1 – Kamal stepped outside his comfort zone

2 – He followed a proven plan (the ‘iCan’ speak Bootcamp) to help guide him to speaker success.
