Monday Motivation - How to be more confident/ step outside your comfort zone

I found this amazing and really inspiring talk by Till H. Groß who seeks to overcome his fears and anxieties and step outside of his comfort zone so he can achieve more and also wants to help others to do so too. 

He challenges himself to step outside of his comfort zone by consciously doing different activities and tasks such as laying on the floor in a public space which make him feel nervous or uncomfortable.  I thought this would be great to share with you all and hopefully you will find it as inspiring and motivating as I did. Even those of us who feel they are pretty confident have things that hold us back. Perhaps not approaching someone at an event that you would love to talk to or not pushing yourself to try something new that you have always wanted to do but never had the confidence to do. 

The idea behind it has roots in exposure therapy. You feel nervous and anxious about doing it but then after a while your anxiety lessens. If you keep repeating this you then end up feeling less anxious and fearful, get better at dealing with that anxiety and push yourself to try new things.

Hope you all have a wonderful week.
