“Life begins at the end of your comfort zone.” - Neale Donald Walsch
Your comfort zone is a behavioral state (and a darn comfortable behavioral state too). It’s healthy to push ourselves to a state of discomfort because that’s where growth and transformation occur.
To change that comfort zone behavior state means changing your reality model. When you identify a belief you want to change you’ll find two barriers you might encounter.
1. Pressure from peers who don’t want you to change.
2. Fear of the unknown.
This is what usually happens: people get comfortable with these belief barriers. They naturally resist new ideas and models because of pressure and fear. People want to avoid confrontation and we’re hardwired to avoid fearful situations.
Don’t allow yourself to stay in your comfort zone!
This is so important to not allow yourself to stay in your comfort zone. This is what I like to call the ‘Tyranny of the Familiar’. It is when people say, “This is the way we have always done it.” Changing this belief and getting out of the comfort zone gives you the power to your personal transformation. The only thing holding you back is pressure from peers and fear of the unknown.
So what are you doing to leave your comfort zone? Share your thoughts.
