Is the familiarity of your current circumstances keeping you trapped in an uncomfortable place, where you do not like where you are, but the thought of taking the action necessary to change things is really daunting? Your days seem to blend, one into another, where what you do every day makes you miserable and even though you want to move your life in a different direction, you are trapped by inactivity. This place you have locked yourself in, is one of the biggest misnomers around, you call it your comfort zone, but it is probably one of the most uncomfortable places to be.
Your self-imposed comfort zone is an artificial place you have created in your mind, which limits your potential, to a minuscule part of what you are really capable of achieving. Break free from you SELF-IMPOSED comfort zone and stop limiting your achieving, because of your lack of believing. Stop accepting mediocrity, because it is comfortable and begin to experiment and explore a little, try something new today, break some new ground. The only way to grow and expand into the type of person you need to be to attract the kind of success you desire, is to commit to on-going learning, try new things, experiment, make some mistakes, respond to feedback, explore and measure. It is far better to try to succeed, commit to on-going growth and expansion and encounter countless challenges, than it is to simply accept your circumstances and stay trapped in a life you hate.
The only way to break out of a life you do not enjoy and to start moving toward a future that is fulfilling and filled with passion and happiness, is to change the way you do things. If you want the world to change, there is one thing that you have 100 % control over, to make this happen, that thing is YOU. Stop denying that you need to change and accept responsibility for changing yourself. It is an incredibly liberating moment, when you realise that “Change is a door that can only be opened from within”. As you begin the journey to break out of your comfort zone and you start to see that by gradually changing all the things about yourself that are keeping you trapped in an unfulfilling life, you begin the process of reshaping your comfort zone and ultimately the life you get to lead.
This all starts with a small shift around your concept of your personal comfort zone and continues with your commitment to replace unproductive habits, with new success habits that will serve you. You never break bad habits they must be gradually replaced, by new more productive habits and routines. This is achieved by layering new behaviour patterns on top of the old unproductive ones.
Identify a few new success habits or routines, which will assist your progress toward the fulfilling life you want to lead and introduce these into your life as “Your Code Of Personal Achievement” This is a daily commitment that you make with yourself to carry out a number of new routines, which will help you to carry out the daily activities necessary to achieve your goals.
1)Choose between 3 and 5 new productive habits or daily routines that you introduce into your life. These are habits that support your goals and help you to keep moving in the direction of your vision.
2)Set time aside each day to carry out these new routines. This is time that is penned into your schedule each week and nothing short of a fire or major life crisis, can alter this crucial time in which you get to “Design and Create Your Future”. I call these daily scheduled meetings “Meetings With Your Future”
3)Keep using your willpower for about 90 days, to carry out these commitments with your future. After about 90 days, these new routines should be ingrained enough, so that they will have replaced, your unproductive habits that have kept you trapped in a life you do not enjoy.
These new positive routines when adhered to over time, will become second nature, like riding a bicycle, you will just take the right actions every day without even thinking about it. This new success habit set, will just be who you are and you will almost unconsciously take the action necessary to achieve outstanding results. Practice makes permanent, so commit to learn new success habits, which support your dreams and you will get to live a winning lifestyle that is fulfilling and aligned with your dreams.
