Do you know that staying for too long in your comfort zone will bring you frustration, boredom and ultimately a loss of meaning to your life and lots of regret?
And I guess you don’t want to have a life full of regret, right?
What makes us stay in a comfort zone?
It’s the need for certainty!
Certainty means safety and predictability…
Here’s the thing.
At some point in our life, we will have experienced a strong emotional event, such as:
– a health issue
– accident, etc
And what do you think this does to us?
Our need for “certainty” becomes an addiction.
Because uncertainty means danger.
And by staying in our comfort zone, we protect ourselves from experiencing this pain again.
But if we stay there too long, our fears start to grow…
We then feel guilty and ashamed about the opportunities we miss…
And a vicious cycle begins. We plan our whole life around our fears and serve them.
But what would happen if you remained in uncertainty long enough?
Yup, you guessed it, it will become certainty!
Remember, we are much more than our fears.
Don’t put your amazing self in the boring box!
Ask yourself: “Am I growing or am I dying?”
Oh, and one last thing…
And I’m sure you’ve heard it before.
Because it’s true.
Life begins at the end of your comfort zone!
