“Leaving the comfort zone is oftentimes a major step towards reaching our desired goal.” #bgdtcoaching.
Doing something difficult, perhaps challenging the status quo in one way or another, leaving the comfort zone as it were, may be daunting.
As civilised, rational, human beings, we can find many arguments for remaining within the perceived safety of the boundaries of our actual experience. The days of following a whim or making a reckless decision, we might feel, are best behind us.
Yet and it is a big yet, unless we are truly, fully, one hundred per cent satisfied with every aspect of our life then leaving the comfort zone is what we need to do sooner or later to reach our desired goal.
Our heart is most likely telling us this already. Our gut instinct is to give up ‘playing small’ and get on with realizing our potential. And though it is a cliché, it’s also true that whatever we have achieved to date began as an idea and was brought into being by leaving the comfort zone, notwithstanding the presence of doubts and concerns.
If you are contemplating leaving the comfort zone and would like to do so knowing someone is there for you as a non-judgemental sounding board, let’s speak and see if coaching can be of value to you.
In the meantime, thanks for reading this leaving the comfort zone post today.
