Comfort Zones are Lame

I shared on Facebook that I have secret and started giving clues.

Yay puzzles!

Here are the clues:
1. It’s goin’ up on a Tuesday
2. Bright accessories make burpees more fun.
3. Comfort zones are lame.

In the video below, I share more about clue 3.

Comfort zones are lame.

You’ve heard that 1000 times. If you’re in your comfort zone you can’t grow.

The best things in life are often waiting for you at the exit ramp of your comfort zone. – Karen Salmansohn

I’m continually trying to make choices that put me against my own comfort zone. As long as you’re uncomfortable, it means you’re growing. – Ashton Kutcher

If you put yourself in a position where you have to stretch outside your comfort zone, then you are forced to expand your consciousness. – Les Brown

I heard Darren Hardy speak recently and he gave a great example of the downside to staying in your comfort zone. It was a great visual for me.

If you’re in the middle between negative emotions and positive emotions, then you don’t get to experience the extremes of EITHER emotion.

Think about a pendulum. It swings equally to each side.

Obviously, we don’t WANT to feel extreme negative emotions, but it’s just natural way of life if we want to feel extreme positive emotions. This reminds me of the phrase “it’s better tolove and loss than never love at all.

If you’re willing to take a massive risk, then you can swing across to the massive reward.

You start with the small risks and then build up that muscle to help you take bigger risk.

Most recently, I took a risk by signing up for a position for Tony Robbins crew. I’ve been on crew before, but this job scares me a little. I start to feel fear in my chest. It would be easy to sign up for a job that doesn’t scare me, but I did that last time.

It’s time to grow.

I ask myself 3 questions when these situations arise.

  1. Is this life or death?
  2. Will this ruin my finances?
  3. Will this endanger my relationships?

Answered No?

Go do it!

Lean in and take a step toward it instead of away from it.

I believe this practice will push me to grow to new levels of personal and professional success.

I’d love to know how you’re pushing yourself out of your comfort zone. What area of life could you push yourself just a little more?


Oh – The clues lead to this. 🙂
