Where Do I Exit My Comfort Zone?

In order to evolve, we need to go out of our comfort zone. At times you may have heard this so often that it has become a bit cliché, but there is much truth in this sentence. The problem is that our comfort zone is big, and what lies outside it even bigger. How do we know how to go out of it? How do we know if we are on the right track?

The answer is in the fear we feel. Fear shows us exactly where to exit our comfort zone. I picture it as a flashing red arrow pointing at a door on the edge of my comfort zone, telling me: If you go out from here, for sure you’ll grow.

But the only thing fear can do is to signal the door; at that point it’s up to us to choose whether to take that door or not.

Of course, here I am not talking about life-and-death situations, I hope this is clear. But I am talking about all those daily moments in which life – and fear – give us the opportunity to grow a bit, expand our comfort zone, become stronger, better, closer to our dreams.

So my questions for you today are:

– Where is your flashing arrow pointing at today?

– Are you willing to face this fear?

– If the answer is yes, you may have a question for me: how can you act even when fear is paralysing you?
