Your comfort zone is that 'safe' place where you can exist without challenges and/or change! Now as comfortable as this may be it is NOT an environment in which you can expect to experience growth either personally or professionally! For anybody trying to build an affiliate business online it will be particularly necessary to continually push yourself to learn and experience new things! As uncomfortable as this may be it is the ONLY way to grow an affiliate business so it's best to accept and embrace this fact!
Here are 5 ways in which affiliates can expect to experience growth in both themselves and their business by pushing themselves and learning 'new' things!
Increases Skill Set/Knowledge
The first and obvious benefit that occurs when you push yourself to explore and learn something new is the education you receive! Of course when working online this education typically includes acquiring new skills as well that you can apply in your efforts to grow an affiliate business!
Increases Self Confidence
Acquiring new knowledge or skills that you applied successfully typically instills in you the feeling of 'world conquering' confidence! This feeling is essential in giving you the encouragement to take risks or try something new and in this way you experience growth on a personal level! You are now more willing to venture forward into the unknown not with the feeling of dread but rather confident anticipation!

The key is to place into action what knowledge or skills you've acquired so that you can experience the benefits and confirmation that your efforts are NOT being wasted! Who out there does not develop a yearning to continue along the same path that gives you the results you want or need?
Your comfort zone is NOT the place you need to be if you expect to experience growth in your affiliate business!
