Imagine you’re encompassed in a large, comfortable bubble..
It surrounds you, creating an enclosed, risk-free environment, where you experience the ability to function with limited stress and ease. The potential for adversarial conflict bounces right off your sphere. You are in a complete zone of safety.
Well, allow me to burst your bubble.
This sphere that we so-often refer to as our “comfort zone” holds hidden truth: It’s all in your head.
You see this “zone” is not actually a physical location, but rather a neurologically created space where patterned routines and activities subconsciously minimize anxiety and stress. The mind simply looks to create an illusion of comfort, when the truth is you need discomfort when striving to be your absolute best.
To get the best out of yourself a moderate period of relative anxiety is needed. This area of discomfort exists just beyond the borders of your safe space; where levels of stress, fear and anxiety are slightly higher than what you’re normally used to experiencing. Ultimately it’s in this place where you truly find yourself and what you are capable of accomplishing.
To reach your greatest potential - moving from one place to another, from one level to the next - you have to make the decision to leave the comfort and stress-free environment of your sphere. By pushing into the unknown, and challenging the very boundaries that have been created to give you this sense of security, you will discover a world within yourself that knows no limits.
So what decisions do you need to make to burst out of your bubble?
