Summary

Why staying inside your comfort zone is killing you...

Looking at the nature of life will show you that reality is, in fact, very harsh. Nearly every living organism is in a constant battle for growth and survival, and the few that aren't probably won't stay alive for much longer.

In the developed world, humans are no longer in a battle for survival, so to speak. However, internal battles still exist and they dictate the level of happiness and fulfillment we experience in our lives. Whenever we let ourselves go and stop striving, reaching or longing for personal expansion, toxic emotions surface as a result from the internal battle we lose. These emotions result in the most common ailments of the 21st century: anxiety, worry, and depression.

Comfort Zone: Stepping Beyond was written by me to inspire others into taking action towards the life they've always wanted. It's an audiobook that shows you what is possible if you decide to go after true love, travel the world, create wealth, or leave a legacy for future generations. 

Inside Comfort Zone: Stepping Beyond, you will hear stories of people who:

  • Having given their all, still picked themselves up and went beyond the call of duty.
  • Had been left penniless and went on to create financial empires. 
  • Traveled the world in search of their true love.
  • Despite chronic illness, had the willingness to serve others and find meaning in their lives.
  • Despite physical disabilities, achieved fame, fortune, and mastery of their craft.
  • Went against all societal norms to prove a point they deeply believed in.
  • Decided to pursue their passion despite everyone pushing them against that pursuit. 

If you're ready to get inspired into action, then listen to this audiobook today!

Awesome Book

It was a life changer! full of concrete examples and exercises, this book got me back on my feet and living again. I have since gone back to my book shelf many times to reread parts of the book and remind myself of Russell's timeless tools for moving from Fear to Freedom, no expectations, no excuses, no complaints and no beating yourself up.

This is an amazing little audiobook!

This is one of the best, most helpful books I have listen. I have purchased for friends and I know that a couple of therapist have purchased it and started recommending it to their patients! I recommend this book to people who don't even think they are living in fear. The author is uplifting, very honest and the book helps you look at your life and even the lives of others in a whole new way.

Very helpful and reasonable.

I am very pleased to say that my focus is clearer, my energy has increased and I’m excited to continue the process. I’m coupling the cold showers with a visualization of achieving a lifelong goal. I’m excited about using Russell C. James’s strategies to help me reach this goal before the end of the year.

I highly recommend this audio book

Everyone has very difficult periods in life. And at such times we all want support. But this is not what we really need. In fact, we need a very powerful push to begin to change in order to begin to change the world around us. This book is about how to gather strength and get out of the comfort zone to start setting goals, to achieve them, to become better mentally and emotionally. Comfort Zone is a very strong book. I can recommend it to everyone who's looking for changes in his life!

Good self-help book.

Comfort Zone offers practical advice for finding courage in the face of trying new things. Precedents are hard-fought experiences but Russell C. James's guidance makes taking the risk less threatening. Those considering trying something new, using their voice in new ways, asserting their will in new directions, will be guided well by Comfort Zone

Excellent Audiobook

I listen a story each night before bedtime. It left me with positive thoughts no matter what happened during the day. The best part was the 3 suggestions each writer gave for being happy.

Perfect for Beginners

This book will help you become aware of your own behaviors that are hindering your, many of which are ingrained so deeply, it's hard to pick them out without help. I'm not sure it helps you get over your fear, but it will help you deal with fears in a more productive way. It's definitely worth listening.

con stories; filled with fake news

casey neistat was featured as an overcomer; I researched this and discovered his second wife left him and he is all commentary; his entire blog and youtube videos are the biggest lie I've ever read; there's no substance or history of achievement; why would this author choose such a loser?

Exactly what i was looking for!

Russell does a wonderful job of giving practical applications that anyone can use to become a fearless liver! His ability to express the spiritual concept of "presence" through practical language makes this book a wonderful hear, comprehendible for all kinds.

I am so much happy to get this amazing book.

The book was very enlightening. My only difficulty was that in places where I felt the listener should have gotten more guidance in choosing their particular issues, this was lacking.
