Defining Your Comfort Zone
Sometimes in life, we get “stuck” in a comfortable place. This can often lead to a lack of progression in our personal development journey. Everyone has their own limits and interests, therefore, we each have different definitions of what our comfort zone is. Your comfort zone is where you tend to see the least amount of personal growth and new successes. Since there is no stress or challenges within your comfort zone, you tend to get stuck here. As Denis Waitley says in The Psychology of Winning, “Get out of that comfortable rut.”
Yes, change can be intimidating, but stepping out of your comfort zone is where the magic happens. Change and challenges come with failure however, growth and improvement won’t happen without some failures along the way. The article titled, “Why The Magic Happens When You Step Out of Your Comfort Zone” by Tony Fahkry, discusses the importance and benefits of stepping out of your comfort zone. In the article, Tony shared, “I wish to remind you that contained within every effort, every step, and every so called failure draws you closer to your treasure — your pot of gold. Nothing is wasted. No effort has been in vain.“
Later in the article, Tony also wrote, “Remember, it is your response to life which is paramount to the level of personal growth you undertake. Most people thrive in ideal situations, although this does not test one’s character. Your response to life’s uncertainties determines your level of inner growth, especially when the tides are against you.”. Failure is more than ok. In reality, not failing is abnormal in order to achieve great success. Failure does not mean it’s time to quit or take a break but instead, work harder in order to achieve your goals.
If you aren’t content with just sailing through life, it is time to step out of your comfort and achieve those big goals you have. Start by reading more books, or whatever challenges you to be bigger and better, DO IT! Tony also shared in his article, “Stepping of your comfort requires you to extend your personal boundaries in order to create a fulfilling life. I want you to know those successful people whom you look up to, have pushed past their comfort zone in order to reach their current level of mastery.”
We are repeatedly given opportunities to step outside of our comfort zone. When we asked the CEO of Mark Spain Real Estate about stepping out of his comfort zone, Mark shared, “I’ve found that the more uncomfortable I force myself to be in my business, the more creative I become and for me, creativity & innovation leads to success.“. Take the next opportunity that is presented to you and don’t fear the uncomfortable, embrace it. By embracing the discomfort or stress, you can grow and improve yourself.
