Your Comfort Zone is Stretchy
This is exactly the season to try something new you've been thinking about doing but have been nervous to try.
It's easy to get stalled. We say, 'Oh, it's so far outside my comfort zone!' and even if we work up the courage to step outside that zone, then we often have a little buzz in the back of our minds telling us to hurry up and get back to safety.
But what if our comfort zones were stretchy? What if you never have to leave your comfort zone but just need to stretch it a bit to do that new thing.
Think about that new thing for a minute. Now imagine your comfort zone expanding to encompass you doing that. Is it less scary?
If you remember that stretching trick, you'll never have to go outside your comfort zone again. What things on your list would you be quicker to do if they were to stay inside your comfort zone?
I'd like to invite you to join our Best Self facebook group where we can talk freely about becoming our best selves - and all the messy work that that entails. In addition, I have another group, The Well Balanced Artist, for creatives of all kinds and in all stages of their creative lives, who are trying to balance their art, business and personal lives.
