Each Of Us Has A DIFFERENT Comfort Zone To Expand
When you look around; when you look at yourself and others, you may notice – sometimes we have similar problems to solve, and sometimes we struggle with completely opposite things. So maybe… just maybe, every person has just few major lessons to learn in life, different comfort zones to expand.
There are people who will rather be alone, than admit, understand, soften. There are people who will rather travel to the most distant lands, than explore their inner life. There are those who will rather jump of the cliff, than take a beginner’s class on creating a personal bond.
If you do something big, impressive, extraordinary, it doesn’t mean you are going beyond your comfort zone. You don’t – if these things are easy. We only grow and transform when we feel THE STRETCH. It can be a “small” thing, like saying: “I’m sorry”, “Yes”, “No, not this year.”
Exhilaration, fear, anticipation, sweat, resignation, hope, persistence, courage, honesty, decisiveness, vulnerability, will.
You do go outside of your comfort zone – if it excites and scares you. If any of the above is part of the experience.
You do, if you decided to be there for someone but inside you still have doubts, not sure if you can handle what’s ahead.
You do, if there is a challenge calling your name and you dream and dream about it for years (it may be easily something that doesn’t make sense all together)
And you know, if you don’t say “yes” – you’ll be bitterly disappointed with yourself.
And unless you try something that devastates you – the limit you reach becomes a starting point for a future challenge. The zone is expanding. You are evolving. Each success makes the next success easier.
We can do “ordinary” things and evolve.
“There is no passion to be found playing small – in settling for a life that is less than the one you are capable of living.” Mandela
What limits do you need to stretch? Physical? Emotional? Is it about your patience? Your presence? What is the hardest?
