Olives – do you love them or hate them?
I learned to love olives after a friend told me I needed to eat at least three in a row for my taste buds to get used to them
I’ve been given the same advice to help to get my children to try different foods
(in their case, lack of an alternative helped them to be more adventurous and try octopus or squid…)
Trying something new…
Remembering the olives helps me when I’m trying out new activities or putting myself in situations where I’m out of my comfort zone – I need to remind myself that new things need time and opportunity to feel OK.
“All things are difficult before they are easy” – John Maxwell
If something – eg networking, talking about myself or my business – feels uncomfortable, is that just because it’s new..? If I don’t give it a few good tries, how will I know whether or not it’ll become easier or even something I love..?
If ‘the magic happens outside of our comfort zone’ how will we know if we don’t put ourselves there? (and more than once!)
How do you persevere when trying something new?

Warning! The ‘something new’ (in my case, olives) can become addictive once you realise what you’ve been missing!
