5. You are better than you think you are.
Being in the comfort zone for too long makes you impose different limiting beliefs on yourself. Your self-imposed limitations keep you from pursuing your dreams and you become bitter and frustrated. As a result, instead of working on yourself, you start blaming others for not respecting you and appreciating you enough. Why? Because that’s easier and more comfortable than pointing out your own faults.
Taking a single step into the uncomfort zone will make you smash all your limiting beliefs and take the right steps towards your goals. This will immediately allow you to realize that people think you are braver, smarter, hard-working, and much more capable than what you think about yourself.
6. Life is a beautiful journey.
“Life begins at the end of your comfort zone.” – Neale Donald Walsch
The thing is, the view outside your comfort zone is stunning. The moment you step outside is the exact moment you realize how vibrant, wonderful and sparkling life is. Of course, there will still be things that you will dislike. But as you become comfortable with being uncomfortable, you will start looking at the brighter side of life which was covered earlier by the haze of your comfort zone.
Now as you step out, you can see how beautiful the world is and it expands for you in whole new ways. The more you engage, the better it will get. As your old perspectives and preconceived notions about life melt away, you will experience a whole new world that exists right outside. All you need to do is take one small step at a time.
Smash Those Walls And Step Outside
“Whenever you feel uncomfortable, instead of retreating back into your old comfort zone, pat yourself on the back and say, “I must be growing,” and continue moving forward.” – T. Harv Eker
Get out of the self-imposed prison that you’ve forced yourself into with your limiting beliefs that subconsciously sabotage your personal development. Fear is only a figment of our imagination. But the consequences of avoiding change & challenges and refusing lessons about life to move ahead are very real. Unless you want to stay in the same place for the rest of your life, dig deep inside and find the power to break those damn walls that hold you inside your so-called ‘comfort’ zone.
Once you get over your fears and step into the unknown, you will never want to get back to what feels comfortable ever again. As you experience how mentally strong you are, as you realize your true potential, you will embark on a truly amazing and crazy adventure that will lead you to the life you always dreamt of.
Go now. Get out there and live!
