Get Out Of Your Comfort Zone To Where All The Good Stuff Happens!

We all have a comfort zone for a reason. It’s our safe space where we retreat to whenever we feel slightly scared or insecure. If it were up to most of us, it’s where we would stay for the majority of the time. However, when we do stay in this comfortable zone, it can be all too easy to end up stagnating. It’s true that not much good will come from staying in your comfort zone, and you won’t be able to grow and develop as an individual. There just won’t be the opportunity to do so.

So, it’s important that you try to push yourself out of your comfort zone as much as you possibly can. This won’t be easy to do, especially to start with, because of all the difficulty associated with trying new things. But the benefits of trying new things and facing exciting opportunities will make it all very much worth it.

If you want to try to push yourself out of your comfort zone more, you should try these following tips.

Tell Yourself Positive Affirmations

One way to feel better about moving out of your comfort zone is to try to change the way you think about it. Rather than dreading it being a potentially very hard and negative thing to do, you should instead frame it as something more positive. You can do this by telling yourself positive affirmations, which are statements that can help you overcome your negative thoughts. So, for instance, you could tell yourself “I can do this!” or “I will be a better person for doing this!”. Eventually, once you have told yourself plenty of positive things, you will eventually start to think that way without being prompted to.

Think About The Times Being Out Of Your Comfort Zone Has Been A Success

I’m sure there will have already been plenty of times when getting out of your comfort zone has been an entirely positive experience for you. It’s important that you remember these times, as they could prove to be very inspiring to you. When you think about all the times that moving out of your comfort zone has had a very positive effect on you, you will probably be a lot more inclined to try again. This is a great way to inspire yourself!

Travel More

Did you know that traveling more can really help to encourage you to get out of your comfort zone? When we travel, it’s the perfect chance to experience new cultures that will seem completely foreign to our own. Exploring these different cultures will certainly be putting you out of your comfort zone however you won’t realize it because it will feel so fun and exciting! If you visit a country that speaks a different language, you will find that this barrier pushes you further out of your comfort zone even though you might not realize it. If you aren’t too sure where to go to, you might want to travel to less well-known beautiful movie locations. You’ll be able to see some of the locations from your favorite movies but, as they aren’t such popular locations, you won’t have to deal with crowds of tourists!

Turn Trying New Things Into A Habit

Moving out of your comfort zone will come a lot easier to you if you practice it a lot more often. So, it’s worth trying to turn it into a habit. Why not make yourself break out of your comfort zone once or twice a week? At first these situations might feel quite strange and awkward but over time, the more you follow this habit, you will find that stepping outside of your comfort zone will become a lot easier for you to manage. You might even look back and wonder why you found it so difficult in the first place!
