The warning signs at the edges of our comfort zone tell us to stop, go back, stay safe. Our comfort zone will even make up seemingly valid justifications for staying in the zone.
Of course, to do something we’ve never done, we have to leave our comfort zone. But first we must catch our justifications. Next we remind ourselves why the Something New is more helpful than the comfort and why staying in the zone is worse than the discomfort of stepping out.
In your corner,
PS: We can also gather motivation by remembering how great it feels to finally step out.
