You’ve heard of the Comfort Zone?
It’s a place we feel comfortable.
We have a Comfort Zone in everything-food, tasks, driving routes, and especially: the people we associate with.
A few months ago, I went had dinner with an old friend.
“Mark, how are you?” I asked. “Actually, I’m terrible,” he replied.
I was really surprised. “What happened to you?”
“After a traumatic divorce. Not only have I lost the person I love most, but I don’t have a support system now.”
Then Mark brought up the Comfort Zone. His theory?
“We find one person who knows all our insecurities. That person becomes our Comfort Zone, so we spend 92% of our time with that person. We don’t challenge ourselves to hang with new people or do new things.”
The Comfort Zone simplifies life.
You don’t need to exert effort or thought when you’re inside it.
Problem is, the Comfort Zone becomes a habit. It seduces us because we start to confuse comfort with happiness.
The moment this happens we stop challenging ourselves.
Of course the Comfort Zone saps our confidence, because we’re not evolving ourselves.
We’re basically coping with life.
How do you know the Comfort Zone is getting you?
There are four signs.
One is boredom. Your life feels repetitious and without novelty.
Another is restlessness. You wonder, “What’s it all mean?”
A third is underachievement. There’s a niggling feeling in the back of your mind that you were meant for more.
A final one is inertia. When you think about moving outside the comfort zone, it feels exhausting.
The good news is that there are three steps for moving yourself out of the Comfort Zone fast.
The first is obvious. You DECIDE to act.
You decide to do the one thing that will give you the most momentum on your goals today.
Deciding is huge. In the words Walt Disney, ‘All our dreams can come true if we have the courage to pursue them.’
The second step is activating the burning desire inside of you to be more. To do this, I suggest you tap into your pride.
