Be Honest: Is Your Comfort Zone Actually Comfortable?
You’re bored with your job, relationships, or life in general. But you’ve been unwilling to make any changes for improvement, big or small.
You’re stressed because you’re drowning in debt. But you’ve been unwilling to sell some of your stuff or cut out some of your unnecessary spending.
You’re lonely because you never asked out that girl or guy you found attractive. But you’ve been unwilling to risk rejection.
You’re worried about your job because you’ve been hearing rumors of a lay-off. But you’ve been unwilling to make a career change or look for something new.
You’re afraid to try something new because you’re unwilling to risk failure.
You’re medicated to help you deal with all the above feelings.
Does that sound comfortable to you? Your comfort zone is anything but comfortable. At best, it’s misery. At worst, it’s hell.
The Line Between Your Current Situation and the Life You Desire
The antidote for all of these feelings lies just outside your comfort zone. But the area outside your comfort zone is not the opposite of comfort. It’s not a “discomfort zone.” Instead, it’s what I call the THRIVE ZONE.
The “discomfort zone” is actually the thin border between your current comfort zone and the thrive zone. This small space is very awkward and painful, but that pain is short-lived. Once you cross that border, you’ll be in the thrive zone, also known as the life you desire.
Are You Willing?
What does it take to cross the border?
Willingness! That’s it.
The rest you can learn and figure out.
Are you fed up enough with how uncomfortable your comfort zone is that you’re willing to experience some temporary discomfort and make some changes?
