How to Break Out of Your Comfort Zone

Uncategorized Sep 12, 2023


Are you ready to step out of the cozy bubble of your comfort zone and embark on an exhilarating journey of personal growth? It's time to unleash your full potential and shatter the limitations that have been holding you back.

Let's explore how fear can hinder us from pursuing our dreams, and how incorporating practices like meditation, exercise, and mindfulness can empower us to push beyond our limits!

One of the greatest quotes I ever heard was, "everything you want is on the other side of fear" - Jack Canfield. (quick plug - I co-authored a best-selling book with Jack Canfield called Success. Check it out HERE.)


The Grip of Fear

Fear has a sneaky way of paralyzing our ambitions and keeping us trapped within the boundaries of our comfort zone. It whispers doubts and what-ifs, making us second-guess our abilities. But here's the secret: fear only has as much power as we allow it to have. It's time to take back control and refuse to let fear hold us back any longer.


Unleashing the Power of Meditation

Meditation is a powerful tool that can help us cultivate the courage and resilience needed to break free from our comfort zones. By dedicating even just a few minutes each day to sit in stillness and silence, we can tune into our inner voice and find the strength to face our fears head-on.

Try this: Find a quiet space, sit comfortably, close your eyes, and focus on your breath. Observe your thoughts without judgment and allow them to come and go. As you practice meditation, you'll develop a heightened sense of self-awareness and a greater capacity to navigate discomfort. You'll notice fear isn't's just a thought, like many of the other countless thoughts you have each day. You can choose NOT to listen to the thought!


Breaking Barriers with Exercise

Physical exercise not only keeps our bodies healthy but also helps us build mental fortitude. When we push ourselves physically, we prove to ourselves that we are capable of much more than we may have thought. If you're like me, I want to give up during a challenging workout. I have 40 more seconds left of burpees and I think, "I can't do anymore...I'm stopping after this one." Then, I have a fight with myself and find the ability to do just one more burpee, and one more after that. It's not easy! But, I choose to give beyond my comfort zone (and I never regret it!).

Engaging in activities that challenge us physically can open the door to new possibilities and boost our confidence. Whether it's taking up a new sport, joining a fitness class, or simply going for a run, find a form of exercise that excites you and pushes you out of your comfort zone one step at a time.


The Power of Mindfulness

Mindfulness is about being fully present in the moment, without judgment or attachment to the outcome. By embracing mindfulness, we can cultivate a mindset of curiosity and openness, which is essential when stepping into the unknown.

As you embark on new endeavors or face unfamiliar situations, practice mindfulness by observing your thoughts, emotions, and bodily sensations. Instead of allowing fear to take control, focus on the present moment and trust in your ability to handle whatever comes your way.


Taking Action

Now that you have the tools to break out of your comfort zone, it's time to take action. Start small, with a goal that challenges you but is still within reach. By setting specific and actionable goals, you'll be more likely to follow through and experience the thrill of surpassing your own expectations.

Remember, growth happens outside of our comfort zone. It's where dreams turn into reality and extraordinary lives are created. So, what are you waiting for? Take that first step today and embrace the discomfort. Your future self will thank you!
