Comfort Zones

Hello Readers,

Comfort zones are beautiful places if you have no intention of ever growing, evolving or developing, mentally, emotionally or spiritually.

For many people, even if they are unhappy or unfulfilled, their natural inclination is to stick with ‘The devil they know’ simply because its familiar and safe. Many people choose to stay in jobs, relationships and situations that have long since lost their importance only because they are afraid of the unknown.  Within our comfort zones we feel safe and secure and try to convince ourselves to believe that we are safe from outside influences that could endanger us, because it’s the place where we feel most at home. When we step outside our comfort zone, we are then taking a risk by opening ourselves up to the possibility of being exposed to unfamiliar stresses and anxiety and feel threatened because we do not know how we are going to react or what is likely to happen next. We are all so accustomed to using the excuses of ‘I can’t, it’s too difficult, It might make me ill’, that we forget to realise that once we stop doing things for ourselves and expect others to accommodate our weaknesses, we are no longer achieving greatness.  Once you get used to taking yourself out of your comfort zone and hurling yourself towards the unknown, that it’s during those scary moments that you begin to realise just who you are, what you are made of, what you are capable of achieving and how exciting and wonderful life can be once you have made that initial move.

Comfort is your biggest trap and coming out of that comfort zone is your biggest challenge. Even your intention of making a few necessary changes could disturb the comfort zones of others because a lot of people will not step out of their cosy existence unless there is a direct threat to their comfort of living.  They love nothing more than to moan and complain about the state of their lives, but shrug away and hide the moment a suggestion is made that it’s possible to do things differently.  They admit they want things to change, but they do not want to be the ones who instigate the changes, probably because they are afraid of change or failure. Only ever doing what feels comfortable is a form of laziness and shows a total lack of imagination. Making that decision of stepping out of your comfort zone is always difficult in the beginning, chaotic and challenging in the middle and awesome in the end.

Rejection in our personal and working life catapults us out of our comfort zone and forces us to take a stand and start living life differently than before. It is often at these times that we discover our hidden strengths and start operating at our very best.  Often people find comfort with those who always agree with them and shy away from those who set them challenges, forcing them to face up to the realities of life.

You are only confined by the walls you build around yourself.  Life always begins with one step outside your comfort zone so that you can start chasing your dreams.  The sooner you step away out of your comfort zone, and once you have made that extraordinary leap of faith, the sooner you will realise that your former comfort zone was not as comfortable as you had yourself believe.

‘We cannot become what we want to be by remaining as we are’.

‘A man grows most tired while standing still’

(Chinese Proverb)

The only difference between a rut and a grave are the dimensions.

Until Next Week,

Love and Light,
