Is your comfort zone holding you back? Lately, we keep hearing people repeat you must get comfortable being uncomfortable.
We’ve heard a lot about getting out of our comfort zone.
Why is it important to get out of your comfort zone?
But have you ever thought about why we don’t want out of our comfort zone? It is because we feel safe and comfortable. We know what to expect and don’t have to worry about surprises. There is no fear in the comfort there. Change is not easy.
We are now in this safe comfy space what in the world could compel us to get out of this cocoon If you ever want to grow personally or professionally you will need to step out. This is where your confidence grows.
Ask yourself, is staying where I am preventing me from a better more fulfilling life?
If the answer is yes, time to step out!
Below are 3 ways of staying in comfy that could be holding you back.
- Your comfort zone could be keeping you from being happy. Especially if you are not confident and struggle with self -esteem. You have to be willing to try something new, learn from others and take that first step out of the cushy comfort zone.
- The comfort zone could be keeping you from growing personally. When you are fearful of something, staying in your comfort zone keeps you from facing that fear. Until you face that fear you can never step into a new place of comfort
For example, if you have a fear of public speaking, that can keep you from taking a job that requires you to speak in front of others, maybe as a spokesperson for the company or just to give a presentation. Even though it’s a step up on your career ladder you won’t take it because you would have to step out of your comfort zone.
- Those that stay in their comfort zone too long can start to feel trapped. Feeling trapped keeps you doing things out of habit. It doesn’t always mean good habits. Those bad habits continue out of fear. Then you start feeling the physical pains from the fear. It keeps you from being active with friends and family.
We challenge you to stop letting fear hold you back. Get out of your comfort zone and enjoy more of life.
