If you’ve ever put off doing something new, because it made you uneasy, you’re not alone.

Most people have trouble taking goal-oriented actions that take them out of their comfort zone, says Jaime Masters, a business coach and host of the Eventual Millionaire Podcast. At a recent webinar, she said that the more we push to do the important things we don’t really seem to want to do that involve a stretch, the faster things will go.

Do you have a list of things you’ve put off doing, because they make you uncomfortable? “Take little risks,” she advises. Either at the beginning of the week or even the Friday or Sunday before, write down three to five active actions you want to take.

Then go do them. The more you do this, the more active actions will become your new normal. Your resistance to trying new things should melt away.
