Day 228 – Get Out of Your Comfort Zone

Comfort zones: Nice cozy little pockets of reality.

Everyone has their own personal comfort zone. We all have built-in mechanisms that regulate our level of anxiety, fear, and discomfort. When we step outside our normal, existing boundaries, we begin to feel anxious. Our natural tendency is to pull back and go back to the norm.

There is nothing wrong with comfort zones per se. We all like being cozy at times and there is an ebb and flow to life. But there is a time for pushing ourselves and ‘being out there’ and there is a time for rest. If we trust ourselves we start to sense when the time is right for doing and when it is right for resting.

Where the comfort zone becomes a problem is when we are stuck in it, when we don’t let ourselves move on with the natural flow of life. When we hold ourselves back and hide in our comfort zone we are effectively saying no to life.

If we want to grow, we have to break away from our comfort zone. One of the best ways is to practice taking risks and doing something that we feel not comfortable doing.

How about this?

Do something that scares you!

It is perhaps the single best thing we can do to break out of our comfort zones and it is also the most liberating and self empowering. The more we can make a habit of pushing ourselves out of our comfort zone, the easier it becomes.

You will build up confidence and resilience. You will start to know yourself as someone who takes risks and challenges themselves. And it is just amazing how the illusion of fear can disintegrate when we push through and stare it in the face!

In the end, each of us determines if there is anything good to say about being in one’s own “comfort zone”. But the evidence clearly points to “comfort” as an obstacle to success.

So, Dare to get out of your COMFORT zone into your COURAGE zone to accomplish things you have never done before within your CORE zone.

For the infinite power of creation is ours if we make a determined effort to use it.
