Are you stuck in your comfort zone? I think we all are in one area or another of our lives. Feels comfy, right? Kind of nice. Easy almost. Just going through the motions, whether it’s our job or a relationship or a fitness level or where we holiday each year and how we spend time with our families. Who wouldn’t want that? The problem is that the things that make life interesting & worthwhile nearly always lie outside of our comfort zones: it may not be something crazy like rowing across an ocean, but perhaps it’s finally conquering that fear of public speaking, being brave and going on that cycling holiday alone, going for that promotion, or starting that charity that’s been on your heart for years and years.
If you’re thinking, ‘I’m up for a challenge, but I’m not sure what my comfort zones are’, then here are some questions to ponder:
- What area of life do you find boring, monotonous or unfulfilling?
- What do you fear the most?
- Do you have a secret wish that is hidden down deep?
The chances are that these small (or large) dissatisfactions in life could be changed by intentionally stepping out of your comfort zone. The amazing thing I’ve found is that when we do step out, the comfort zone always shifts towards us, making the new place our comfort zone. What was once unknown becomes the new normal. Can you imagine how it would feel to look back on this week as the moment that you made the decision to shift your comfort zone?
Check out this week’s Show if you want to identify what’s going on in your subconscious brain that might be stopping you from stepping out, and then take the steps to move past the fear and take action.
And don’t forget to Choose Your Attitude – after all, it’s the one thing we always have a choice about.
