Get Out Of Your Comfort Zone
One thing that I have found to be true is that if you want things to start changing in your life for the better you must get out of your comfort zone.There is a rule no pain no gain so keep
Believe me, I know it’s scary and intimidating but it’s the only way you can grow to your full potential. Most people will choose to be miserable rather than choose the unknown and I’ll give you an example.
Know anyone in a bad relationship and they never seem to get out of it? Why do you think that is? They keep saying their miserable or unhappy yet they continue for years in that relationship.Keep in mindIt’s because at least in that relationship they know what to expect. If they leave, they are getting out of their comfort zone and entering the unknown and everyone is scared of the unknown.Make a
Your Comfort Zones Are Everywhere
Relationships are just one example but how about your job. Are you happy with it or do you feel trapped? I get it, at least you can depend on that consistent income. It may not be what you love to do but hey, it’s a check every week or two that you know you can count on.
Have you ever thaought and
The thing you must start to realize is that those days of working 30 years for the same company and retiring with a nice pension are over and are not coming back.Most of us have
With the full retirement age moved up to 67 that means you’re going to be working for almost 50 years. Can you imagine being told that you’re going to be miserable at least 8 hours a day for the next 50 years?
Nothing stops here
You better find a job you love or start your own business but to do that you’re going to have to get out of your comfort zone.
Yet another example is where you live. In my case I grew up in Ohio. I would go on vacation every year to Florida and man I couldn’t wait to get down there and enjoy the sunny weather, get a great tan and enjoy the beach.Feel abou that
For 20 years with a few other trips to Cancun or Aruba I enjoyed these destinations and always went back home to dreary Ohio weather. I had no choice, it’s where my business was and where all my friends were.Just
At least I thought I had no choice. In reality there is always a choice it’s just a matter of how scared you are of getting out of your comfort zone.I believe in that
I took the risk, sold the bar, left all of my lifetime friends and got out of my comfort zone because I wanted to live in my version of paradise.
Most of my friends thought I had lost my mind. They said, “no way you’ll ever leave” “all your friends are up here” “you don’t know anyone down there” “what will you do?”
At those times you must have confidence in yourself. Yes, I’ll take a risk on myself. I’ll make new friends, I’ll meet new people and I’ll figure out a new line of work.
Was it scary starting over in a new location? Hell yes! Was it challenging? Oh yeah! Was it worth it? No doubt!!Surround Yourself With Positivity
I’ve been down here now for over 20 years and to this day I still have my old friends call me complaining about the weather every winter, yet they continue to deal with it. Why, because they don’t want to leave their comfort zone.One more more thing
Your Mindset Must Change To Live Life On Your Own Terms
Remember when you were a little kid and all your friends started riding bicycles? Did you just walk along beside them while they rode because you were to scared to learn to ride? Hell no! You started trying to learn to ride. Did you fall a few times? No doubt but it was worth it.
You didn’t think, “I don’t know how” or “how long will it take to learn”. You got out of your comfort zone and just did it. I think as we get older most people lose that sense of being able to do anything we put our mind to and that makes me sad.So
Want a better relationship? Get out of your comfort zone and find the person that will treat you the way you deserve to be treated. Each of us should be treated with respect. Don’t let anyone tell you that you are not special or tear your confidence down.
I’ve seen it happen in many relationships where one person is constantly mentally abusing the other and after awhile they think they are worthless. Don’t accept that. Build your inner strength and surround yourself with great people.Make a
Know that there is the right person out there and life is short.
Want a better job or start your own business? If you’re working for someone else you’re helping them build their dreams. Start building on your own dreams. I’m not saying to go out and quit the job you have now but I am saying start building something in your part time.
Your full time job will take care of your bills, your part time biz will take care of your future. Figure out how much money you would actually need to live on. Build that part time business up until you reach that goal then you have the option to leave your full time gig.There are some words who
Have a place you dream of living? The world is a much smaller place nowadays and much easier and quicker to travel compared to even 40 years ago. Find your piece of paradise and do some research.Stay positive
Does your piece of paradise have the job that fits you? What will be the cost of living there? These are just a few steps to think about. Would you step out of your comfort zone and leave your friends to live your life in paradise?
