My perspective is about the comfort zone from my point of view.
What Would Motivate You To Move Out From Your Comfort Zone?
Like it or not, everyone has some sort of comfort zone, including you and me. However, everyone has a different idea of the comfort zone. So what is the comfort zone? The comfort zone is no less and no more than maintaining our level of comfort. Is the comfort zone a good or a bad thing? Well, it is neither bad nor good – although everyone approaches this issue from different perspectives. If there are things in our daily routines that we feel good about, it’s okay, but if those are habits or circumstances that don’t help us in advance, that’s not good. The easiest way to find the best answer out is to ask yourself a simple question: Am I living a fulfilled life, and am I delighted with my circumstances? If the answer is no, you should consider making some changes to your daily routine. The bottom line is that if you want to get more out of yourself, you have to commit to stepping out of your comfort zone or at least you need to expand its boundaries.
When we observe our own lives, we can see what belongs in it and where its boundaries are. Sometimes we have to change or step out of the usual routine that keeps us from achieving our dreams. Not to mention that our comfort zone, in most cases, it doesn’t even make us happy! Why, because its mere existence keeps us from becoming the person we have always wanted to be.
We often don’t even notice that we live our lives in a comfort zone. However, the comfort zone includes the usual things. For example, this house we live in, our friends, or what kind of restaurant we used to go to. But it also determines what our job is like, our vacation destination, what our relationships or habits are. Our comfort zone includes our behaviour and reactions or thoughts, and I could even list all that defines our comfort zone.
We feel comfortable when we are in the same situation, and we always do the same thing because it does not cause stress for us. Our usual routine is to wake up in the morning, go to work after breakfast, go home after work, have dinner and then go to bed to sleep …. and the next day it all starts all over again. However, when we finally have some free time, we find many excuses for not making an effort to do something that would bring us closer to living a better life with a higher vibration. We cherish our dreams somewhere in our subconscious, but we can hardly or rather never bring them to the surface. Why? Because we don’t want to face new challenges. We are unwilling to start anything new that would force us to step out of our comfort zone.
Many people want more money or a promotion. Many people are long for new relationships. We want to discover new places and other cultures, but when the opportunity finds us, we hesitate for too long and don’t take the necessary steps to seize the opportunity. Our comfort zone holds us back.
WHY we do this? WHY are we clinging to our comfort zone?
Why we don’t move out from our comfort zone?
Why do we reject opportunities, even if we have a chance to live the life we have always dreamed of?
This is because we always prefer more convenient solutions. We feel relaxed in our usual environment. Many times we go to the same place to have fun because we know everyone there and we feel safe there. However, if I want to realize my secret desires, I have to give up things that have minimal or no significance at all. I have reduced certain activities, such as hobbies, to gain more time to achieve my goals. What would motivate you to step out from your comfort zone?
Maybe you want to go back to study. You might find your passion in what you learn. Another good idea is to reduce your TV-watching time from minimal to zero and read books instead. For example, I wanted to leave my comfort zone, so I was searching online to find a solution to my financial situation. It helped me to register for an online platform where I found my passion for online business and thus managed to exit my comfort zone, which wasn’t beneficial to me. Thanks to this, I was able to gain knowledge that helps me to find multiple passive income sources.
If we want to develop our personality, we need to gain new experiences. The exciting thing is that when we get into an unprecedented situation, we’re a little tense at first, but then we get used to it over time.
Our comfort zone is sometimes uncomfortable for us. We want new goals and events, but we do nothing for them. The instinctive reaction of human nature is to cling to ordinary things.
Then we have to ask ourselves the question!
What is more important to us? Waiting for the miracle and a better life will suddenly find us without doing anything for it, or are we willing to accept the temporary discomforts we experience when we light something new?
Or maybe it would be better to live our lives in such a way that in the end we may regret missing out on opportunities that could have made our lives better?
The decision is ours! Yours and mine
