The Art of Charm by Jordan Harbinger

When it comes to the ‘science' of dating, The Art of Charm adheres to one simple philosophy: If you want to get the girl you like, then you need to become a better man.

Audio: A Reach From Comfort

Posted by Jordan, 28 Apr 17

Anyone who’s listened to The Art of Charm for more than an episode or two knows that we’re always encouraging you to step outside your comfort zone in order to grow and better realize your potential. It’s a sound concept, but also one that’s been so beaten into the ground by fly-by-night life coaches and Instagram meme pushers that it seems obvious enough to have lost all meaning.

Luckily, we have Brandeis University organizational behavior and psychology professor Andy Molinsky, author of Reach: A New Strategy to Help You Step Outside Your Comfort Zone, Rise to the Challenge, and Build Confidence, on hand to reintroduce us to the concept on a scientific — rather than purely motivational — basis.

What are you looking for?

  • You know it’s important to step outside your comfort zone for the sake of growth — but are you doing it regularly?
  • Understand why it’s hard to act outside your comfort zone, how you (perhaps unknowingly) act to avoid stepping out of your comfort zone, and what it takes to successfully act outside of your comfort zone.
  • Learn the five psychological roadblocks to exploring outside of your comfort zone.
  • Discover the three key tools for systematically attacking your limitations in order to grow: conviction, customization, and clarity.
  • Harness the power of props (or kangaroo costumes, as the case may be).
  • And so much more…

Listen to this episode of The Art of Charm in its entirety to learn more about why we’re sometimes resentful toward the very idea of change, how being able to articulate why we’re not stepping out of our comfort zones makes us more likely to correct course, the three tools — conviction, customization, and clarity — for systematically attacking self-limitations in order to grow, how props and forcing mechanisms work, and lots more.

Till next time, stay charming!
