Everything you want is just outside of your comfort zone
This quote has literally changed my life. I know it’s basic and pretty much common sense, but the moment I read it in the book ‘how to get from where you are to where you want to be’ by Jack Canfield it really resonated with me. If you haven’t read this book yet then please do! It really is a game changer. I used to think I was quite an out-going girl. A girl who would go for what she wants and willing to try new things. Little did I know that I am so confined and comfy in my comfort zone that I didn’t even notice the zone to begin with.
Have you ever found yourself saying all the things that you would want in life but never actually doing anything about it? Well, yeah that’s me. Although I would describe myself as having a good work ethic I know that right now everything I am doing is within my comfort zone.
It seems we can all say what we want, but we never put it into action. This is either because we we are too lazy, not sure how to begin or because it is outside of our happy, comfortable bubble that we have created. Well huns I am here to tell you that it’s time to leave your nice, cosy king-size bed with extra blankets comfort zone.
If you are super happy with your life and wouldn’t change a thing, then obviously don’t leave your bed because it sounds amazing however, I am sure there might be one part of your life that you would like to work on. If there is then stay tuned because I am going to give you some helpful tips to step out your comfort zone into the wonderful world of opportunities.
Step 1. Decide which areas in your life need a little tweak and write it down. You won’t be able to change things until you have identified what needs to be changed.
Step 2. If you carry on doing the same thing you will get the same results. So try something completely new. If you are looking for new business, speak to different people. Make an ad for your business or turn to social media. If you want to get a promotion, speak to your boss and advise them why you want and deserve it. If you want to meet the love of your life, go out to different places, join a dating website. Do something that you wouldn’t normally do.
Step 3. Gain knowledge and ask for help, you don’t have to do this alone. There are loads of people that are willing to help you. Buy books and search the internet, there is so much infomation available.
Step 4. Keep pushing. It is going to get uncomfortable and you might face new obstacles everyday but remember anything worth having doesn’t come easy.
Step 5. Write down every new thing you do and review it in three months. You will be amazed by the results and proud of yourself for stepping outside your comfort zone.
