Life begins at the end of your comfort zone!
What makes one uncomfortable is totally dependent on the individual. However, what is true with us all is the importance of recognising our ‘perceived’ boundaries, and that we continually challenge them.
This why constantly setting yourself personal challenges / doing things you find uncomfortable is the key to building higher levels of self-esteem, self-empowerment, and self-confidence, basically anything to do with you feeling better about yourself and you capabilities.
And the great thing is that in order to improve your life exponentially these personal challenges / uncomfortablethings don’t have to be huge challenges to begin with. They can be small challenges like; waiting a few minutes before snacking, having that chat you’ve been avoiding etc. Or better still make lifestyle changes such as; taking up a new hobby, a new sport, training for a tough muddy or marathon, learning to dance, learning a new language, learning to cook or bake, give up alcohol for a month, take up a martial art or self-defence etc.
As a licensed Thrive Programme Consultant I have found that the best way is to set yourself a daily or weekly personal challenge, or find a situation that makes you slightly uncomfortable, (obviously, making sure that it is doable if you put effort into it) then work out how you are going to do it and then do it!
Then when you have done it take a few minutes to process or write down what you actually did in order to complete your challenge – this part is vital, it’s not boasting, its building.
When you do this YOUR perception of YOU has to change. It becomes stronger, more powerful, more in control and very, very soon taking on challenges and expanding the perceived boundaries of your ‘comfort zone’ becomes your ‘normality’ – then you will find yourself taking life by the scuff of the neck and really living it!
