    It depends from person to person. For instance motivational posters and videos don't work on me. What works for me is....... laziness. I tell myself 'Dude, if you don't start getting out of your comfort zone and start making $ on the Internet, you will have to find a regular 9 to 5 job'. As you can imagine that's not something that I find very pleasing, so getting out of the comfort zone gets pretty easy :D There is a friend of mine, who has a political blog. Each day he writes nearly 7-8 good articles (each over 1500 words), plus all the stuff he needs to do in order to get traffic. Writing 10-15 k words a day and all the related stuff isn't what you may call ''comfort zone'', but the dude makes it. His secret is that he must get drunk to start working (and by drunk I mean that by the end of the day he has consumed at least a liter hard alcohol), if he doesn't drink he cant write even a 500 words press release. I hope you are not that kind of person, cause that would mean that getting out of the comfort zone would require for you to become an alcoholic and addict :D

    In the end discipline and habit will play the ultimate role. You will have to force yourself 10-20-50 times to do what you must do, and after that it will become your habit and you wont even consider it ''getting out of the comfort zone''. Its like with sport. You can hate it, but if you start lifting weights each morning, after 3-5-6 months it will be something as natural to you, as eating. Let me give you an example. From my humble experience most small children don't like to brush their teeth or do similar stuff that their mothers require them to do. But since they are forced by mommy and daddy to do it every morning and every night, in the end it becomes a habit which they retain until they become 60-70-80 years old and start using fake teeth (gold and silver :D )

    Turn your laptop off, do not have anything to eat or drink, empty your pockets of everything, then go sleep on a bench in the park or in the doorway to a shop. Live like that for 24 hours, with no food, money , gadgets, roof over your head.

    Come back in 25 hours and tell us all how it felt.

    First thing, Congrats! You know where you are legging behind. so dude just stop asking here. just take action if you are having skills & earn. And incase if you are not having enough skill, learn & be master in it. In both case you have to take action. May I know what is stopping you to come out of your comfort zone.

    good luck.

    The best thing you have to move out from Comfort zone is Sleeping.

    Sleeping will give you new dreams you can follow your dreams so sleep well OP.

    ;)

    Get a job roofing or washing dishes. Then you'll never want to waste time again. Each dollar you collect will help you outrun having to work at such a place again. And to get those jobs you literally just fill out 10 applications in person and someone will hire you. If not fill out 20.

    Those two shit jobs were the best things that ever happened to me. Good luck OP.

    This is the beginning of my work season in my lawn care business. That is chasing a lawn mower and hoping that I never actually catch the front where the blade is. If you really want to get out of your comfort zone, I would be happy to give you my beginning season soreness.

    I get OP's concern. You may invest all you have into something that may seem now like a gold mine, yet when you start working on it, it may just blows up, or turns out not to be like you though it would be. And I've been there, reading about everyone making money from a particular method made me try it myself, yet I failed miserably. Several times. And ye, it sucks, you feel like shit, and you hate yourself for spending so much time and money into something, and you get nothing in return.
    And I saw those as failures back then, but not anymore, more like investing into learning several ways of how not to do things. I analyze my mistakes and try not to make them in my next venture. So, as long as you set your goals in a realistic level, you are bound to succeed. But also be prepared to fail, and don't take it as a surprise if you do. Don't go "all in" thinking that there is no way this could fail. There always is.
    If motivation is your issue, try setting a reachable goal and aim for it. For example, set yourself a challenge to earn enough money so when the next iPhone comes out, you can buy it immediately. Or maybe earn enough money so you can spend them all on traveling this summer. After reaching that goal, set another one, bigger and tougher, but also achievable. And so on.
    That seems to be working for me :)

    I started with 1h per day using Seindfile's calendar. Google it :)
