Comfort vs Growth

Are you stuck in the comfort zone?

Are you getting a little bored and discontented with where you’re at in life?

Isn’t it time you stepped out of your comfort zone?

This is a question I’ve been asking myself a lot lately, especially since I started training for triathlons, which regularly stretch me beyond my comfort zone and push me mentally and physically.

What I wasn’t prepared for were all the other benefits this would bring me, because even though going beyond your comfort zone can be uncomfortable – the benefits are that you learn, grow and go further than you imagined you could. 

And that’s just for starters!

Dr. Elizabeth Lombardo, therapist and author of Better Than Perfect, says people who regularly seek out fresh experiences tend to be more creative and emotionally resilient than those who remain stuck in routine.

“Breaking your own mould can only make you stronger and more confident to reach higher levels in your professional and personal life,” she says.

Being uncomfortable can be a great thing. It isn’t easy but it’s worth it.

Are you ready to break out of your comfort zone?

In this episode I share with you:

  • Why it’s easy to stay in the comfort zone
  • The many benefits of being uncomfortable
  • Things that I’m doing to step outside of my comfort zone

Being your best versus staying in the comfort zone

Getting out of your comfort zone can be one of the best moves you ever make in life.

It’s just that getting out of it, is also one of the hardest.

Take me for example, while I am known for being a massive action taker, I’ve found myself in this interesting conundrum.

I kind of love my life right now and I don’t feel a huge need to change much about it.

Happiness is wanting what you have, so I’m very happy.

Yet I’ve found myself taking life a little cruisy (well for me at least) and not pushing forward on projects or milestones like I have in the past.

I haven’t yet set revenue goals for this year (although I have done a personal and professional budget) and I still haven’t started my first vlog.

In the past these would have all been done swiftly and in typical ‘Aries’ all or nothing fashion.

But I have these two gorgeous puppies to distract me and deprive me of sleep…and many more things going on that I reveal in this podcast.

I think little Angel is trying to upstage me!

Yet I KNOW deep down that I have so much more to give, to achieve and to put forth in this world to help you become a Freedomist and live life to the full.

So at which point is it ok to stick around in your comfort zone and when should you bust beyond it?

I reveal all in this episode including:

  • The benefits of getting out of your comfort zone (courtesy of myself and Tonya)
  • How to know when to push yourself and when to enjoy your current state of happiness
  • Why I’m grappling with this right now and how I’ve tapped into my deepest calling as a result
  • A few of my fave podcasts I’m listening to right now
