How To Get Out of Your Comfort Zone
We expect life to give us lemonade, but instead, it gives us a sour taste (lemon). We hate challenges, but comfortability is our next of kin. Staying in your comfort zone means that you are dependent. That is to say that you rely on other people for your comfortability. It can be your family member or significant other. It doesn’t matter but time will come where they will get tired or even lack enough resources.
What will happen next? Blame games will flare up like a hot air balloon. As much as you want success, you have to agree that your hard earned money is sweeter than anyone else’s. For heaven’s sake, you have to suffer to reach the pinnacle. After all, Rome wasn’t built in one days’ time. Consistency is the key that gives you freedom of independence. You might be in a stable relationship, but no one knows about tomorrow. When you get out of your comfort zone, you will avoid complacency like the plague. To leap of faith, read further.
*Comfortability is what puts an end to your practical ideas. Hit a plateau by going to unknown places and learning new skills. You might be what you want to be, if only you know and identify where the magic happens.*
1. Be Honest
On all levels, don’t be scared but put everything on the table. By this, I mean shaking off all of your fears and rejections. Don’t make mere excuses because you are shy or nervous, be unstoppable. In fact, your partner will appreciate your honesty and confidence. When he or she seems to undermine you, stand tall and aim at the highest cliff. Your end motives should be direct and not indirect.
To ease it up, take action by writing three things that scare the hell out of you. Commit to doing that one thing at a time. If it’s making an important phone call or sending an email, commit to it to the end. To get out of your comfort zone, do the impossible.
2. Chase for Success
Good is yet to come is one adage that most people believe that their time is near. Truth be told, if you don’t chase for it, you won’t get it. Not even a pinch of it. What am I saying? Slow down and don’t rush but keep up with the pace. Always know that you need to achieve one goal at a time. So don’t chase for what you can’t handle.
3. Don’t Lean On Him/her but Lean on Your Success
If you practice to lean on what you expect at the end of the day, you will get out of your comfort zone. In fact, you will let go of your fears without a reprise. When you centralize on one activity, consider it done without anyone’s help. Also, have a sense of pursuing beyond your expectations. The baby steps will help you to get started and lean on that one thing to the end.
Sooner or later the unseen energy will break the comfortable bond hence creating more opportunities coupled with resources.
4. Ask Questions
If you want to be an entrepreneur, setting high priorities is the best way to flourish. To do this, you have to be open regarding your conversation. Ask how it’s done and some of the limitations. Meet with different stakeholders and don’t forget to jot down on one or two important strategies. You find that their ideas and inspirations will keep you on the move. To let go of anxieties and shyness, speak to everyone even strangers.
*Getting out of your comfort zone means waking up at 5:00 am to either study or meditating on your daily activities. Skip your favorite channel and focus. Comfort is the number one enemy of success.*
5. Follow up On Your Routines
Apt routine brings nothing else than a value in your life. It is all about getting out of your comfort zone. So, efficiency is something that needs to be apprehended. To avoid boredom, set realistic routines in small but significant ways. If it means waiting for that important appointment till 8 pm, so be it.
6. Celebrate Each Win
Most people believe that hard work pays but they don’t learn that it also pays to set aside some time to play. As soon as you accomplish your end need, cheer it up with champagne and visit friends. Also, still know that tomorrow needs you just like yesterday. I mean recognize each success and moment by having a sense of appreciation.
7. Don’t Forget to Reflect
On your own free time, take time to reevaluate your successes and fails. By this I mean tick your well to do lists as well as improving plans. Don’t forget some of the challenges that made you not to focus on your goals. If need be, set a time management plan and focus on it to the latter.
In addition to this, set aside an inspirational note that will keep you on the move. Always know that if you want to accomplish anything in life, you have to spend tons of time inside, sorry, outside of your comfort zone. By this, I mean spending less time in your social media accounts and focusing on one thing at a time.
