When you step out of your comfort zone you can move mountains you never knew you even had to move in the first place. Serendipitous encounters and events can seriously change your life, but you have to take the first step …..jumping out of that comfort zone! I know, I know. It’s a happy, squishy place filled with exactly what it’s named for: comfort. I seriously do get how terrifying it is. It feels unsafe, tough, and just plain scary! However, it tends to be the key to success. Not only in business but also in your personal life.
Well, what happens when you step outside of your comfort zone finally? I’m so glad you asked. Check it out 🙂
You’ll be more productive. Comfort kills productivity.
Being comfortable usually will stop us from chasing our dreams. Pushing personal boundaries can really help you get more done. It can help you feel more ambitious and give you the drive to learn new things.
You’ll be more adaptable to change.
Harvard Professor Brené Brown shares that if you challenge yourself to do things you normally wouldn’t, you can prime your body to be able to handle changes better. You actually don’t really know what you’re made of unless and until you venture outside familiarity. I totally get this and I can relate! You just don’t know what you’re capable of until you try. If you need to, try to step out of your comfort zone little by little. Build it up. Then change will seem like the easiest thing ever! I promise!
You’ll become more creative.
When you go after new experiences, learn new skills and open new doors for your life, you become inspired. That inspiration will start to help you flourish and grow in creativity. Use that spark of extra creativity to grow whatever it is you’re working on. Write a book, write a blog, grow your business, paint a portrait, or whatever it is! Use it to do something to progress your personal development. Trust me, you’ll grow even if you never thought you would.
Next time we’ll talk about WHY you should step outside of your comfort zone and HOW to do it. This was all about what happens when you actually do it. Magical, huh? Totally is! Do you want these amazing things to happen to you too? Then stay tuned for next time. I’ve got your back on the steps to take!
With love and magic,
