Well, I think, comfort zones maybe nice places but they are waste lands where nothing grows. Oh yes! Get out. Go out there and do what you detest doing. Below are few things that I know, will help you get out from your comfort zone and be the best you. Enjoy Reading!!
1: Face Your Fears: So what exactly do we mean by the word “Fear”? Well, I think “Fear” as we all know is “False Evidence Appearing Real”. So then, why must one give in to fear when there is so much to live for; I mean the unachieved dreams and the untapped potentials stacked within? One of the ways by which one can get out his/her comfort zone is by facing their fears. So you ask, how? Apparently, many people all around the world, tend to act on fear, overlooking the fact that, acting on fear makes your fears come true but acting on faith and the zeal to succeed, makes your dreams come true. Regardless of your status/position at work or even at home; you need to stand up for yourself. Be it, public speaking etc. Take control of your destiny. The fear of the unknown makes life much stressful. Don’t let it serve as a destructive tool, to get you off your path of success. Don’t let it be a setback. Chase fear into a room and be fear’s friend. Go out your comfort zone; do the things you have difficulties doing. Being indolent, will only render you poor. Remember if you don’t fight for what you want, don’t cry for what you lost.
2: Set Small Achievable Goals: Ever heard of the old adage that goes like “A journey of a thousand miles begins with a step” Oh yes, it does! No idea is too little as you might think sometimes. Regardless of how small you see it, just work on it and I assure you, it will become something you least expected. Remember, you don’t have to be great to start but you have to start to be great. Get uncomfortable with yourself and reach out for more. There is always a lot more to learn/achieve. Refuse to stay small.
3: Change your comfort to discomfort: By changing your comfort to discomfort, I mean, doing the things that makes you uncomfortable. You need to forget about whatever people say about you. The perception people have about you, doesn’t define you. It is what you perceive about yourself that works. It is how you see yourself that determines how you will fight the giants in your life. Don’t pay heed to their negative comments about your life. You own your happiness. Choose to stay positive-minded every day regardless of the circumstances at hand and the situation you find yourself in.
4: Envisage the person you want to be: How do you view yourself now? What about in the next 5years? What do you want to do in future? Some people tend to under-estimate themselves because they failed to visualize who they want to become in life. You need to understand that, whatever work you set your eyes on, to be in life, requires hard work and determination. Be encouraged, see yourself doing it. You need to form a clear mental image of the person you want to become. Break out your comfort zone; there is absolutely nothing special in there. Remember, your memory improves when you imagine yourself doing something. If you aspire to be a Doctor, visualize yourself doing it and work towards it. Fight towards your set goals.
5: Becoming more Persistent: Once you have come out of your self-defeating comfort zone, you still have the mission of staying out of it. You have to be persistent in doing the things you feel so uncomfortable doing, to help achieve your Goals/Objectives in life. You have what it takes. You only need to avail yourself. Strive for success. You can’t be successful whiles living in your comfort zone. Come out of it and make your world a wonderful one. You can. You Will. Make it happen. Be a Comfort killer.
