Coming out of the comfort zone is about challenging yourself. It is about finding out what you can do rather than what you can’t do even if that initial thought of doing that ‘thing’ turns your stomach upside down and inside out. It’s about living your life to the fullest.
When I head towards the stretch zone I know there will be a prize at the end of it all. The reward would be to experience that warm sense of satisfaction.
At the beginning of the week I set aside time to think through an activity that would take me to another level of personal growth. In a very relaxed emotional state I’m able to focus on my needs and my development. The chosen activity has to be something I would not normally do. It has to be safe, ethical and personal to me.
This week was all about not complaining or saying negative things. It can be a challenge when you find that the dishes are still there to be washed up and you can hear the TV blaring away from the sitting room as you try to sleep. I’m re-training my brain to bounce off those negative thoughts quickly. I have, inevitably, had a few slip ups. The idea is to keep this going for the next 7 days. What a challenge!
