Get Out of Your Comfort Zone
Many people do not enjoy the success that is rightfully theirs because they are unwilling to step out of their comfort zone. They doom themselves to a life of quiet desperation and third rate mediocrity. They are constantly stuck in an endless loop of reinforcing behaviour that holds them captive and generates the same results week in week out.
A good life coach (www.lifecoachingonline.com) will encourage you to step out of your comfort zone, but will keep you from stepping into your stress zone. They will stretch you just enough to make a real difference and inspire you to start living the life of your dreams. They will identify the limiting beliefs and negative thoughts that are holding you back and it will be as if an imaginary brake that has been holding you back had suddenly been released.
There are things you can do yourself to encourage you to get out of your comfort zone. You can use affirmations such as "I set goals and achieve them easily and effortlessly". You can visualize being successful in all that you do, and having, doing, or being what you want. You must flood your sub-conscious mind with images of your new successful self. Einstein said "Imagination is everything. It is the preview of life's coming attractions." Most importantly of all you need to change your behaviour and start taking action. You may make a few mistakes, but these are just learning processes through which you will grow. In fact the more mistakes you make the more successes you will have. George Bernard Shaw said "When I was a young man I observed that nine out of ten things I did were failures. I didn't want to be a failure, so I did ten times more work."
Every week do something that scares you a little!
