“The soul should always stand ajar, ready to welcome the ecstatic experience.” Emily Dickinson
We all like our comfort zones. It feels cozy, and we feel we are in cruise control. Comfort zones however lull us into believing that the fear we feel to try something new is justified and acceptable. However, being in the comfort zone leads you to stop growing and learning. No matter who you are, you cannot stop learning and to learn you need to get out of your comfort zone. You may have heard your friends or colleagues who have the fear of public speaking or doing bungee jumping or swimming or even hiking a steep hill.
Common statements you hear from this fear are :
“I’m no good at public speaking”.
“I hate public speaking.”
“I’m scared of heights.”
“You are too good at this, there is no way I can make such good presentations”.
Most of these are, more often than not, self-limiting beliefs. I agree each of our talents are different but unless you try how would you know if you are good at it or not?
What are you limiting by being within your comfort zone?
