One of the biggest obstacles standing in your way while trying to outgrow yourself might be your fear of the unknown.
You might not be aware of it, or you may have hidden it under a mountain of good intentions and best practices.
The fear of the unknown keeps you from enjoying the new, the new horizons, your limits, your brand's true potential, your co-workers' talents, your corporation's capability to truly embrace and realize change.
The fear of the unknown keeps you from optimizing your own intuition. You rely on others, not yourself. You rely on their ideas, opinions, decisions, not yours. With every decision not made by yourself you become more conditioned and addicted to your own world, and the decisions and opinions of others.
To outgrow yourself you will have to get rid of your fear of the unknown:
- Start by trying some new yoghurts.
- Drive to work on another route.
- Browse the web.
