The Secrets of The Comfort Zone
You know that moment when your going up a roll coaster? Your body has an immediate reaction - palms sweat, heart racing, butterflies in your stomach? Or the moment before a first kiss? Nervous and excited at the same time, not sure of the outcome but committed to joy you might feel after?
That is what it's like to step outside of our comfort zone. It's funny how as human beings we are always searching for the thrill, for those pivotal moments so we create bucket lists.
- Go sky diving
- Have a 1 night stand in Paris
- Race a car
- Feed a baby tiger
- Jump off a cliff in the Mediterranean
... But here's the thing; those moments are fleeting because when it comes to stepping outside of our comfort zone that requires a life shift we are scared shitless. So we stay in relationships that we are unhappy in, we work jobs that we hate, and we complete what makes our parents proud instead of following our hearts.
There are these awesome philosopher you may have heard of, Plato and Socrates, and between there beautiful minds the following was stated, "in life there are only 2 stages; you are either growing or decaying. There is no such thing as stability." So remember that when you feel that your life is comfortable, or your relationship is comfortable or in your finances you feel happy about where you are . . . in that moment take the time to question everything! Ask yourself, are you growing towards something in each area of you life or are you spiraling down slowly?
