Do you know what your comfort zone is? How you think and what you think is an effect of those who raised you. Everything you believe has been taught to you in some way. The comfort zone that we created for ourselves is only developed to hold us back from the life that we desire. In today’s episode, we’re going to analyze what this zone is and how to get out of it.
First, you need to understand what your zone is. This part of the process is very personal. It takes some real self awareness to dissect who you are and the little things about yourself. I love hearing Gary V talk about self awareness. Start the self awareness process by analyzing your likes and dislikes.
Next is the process of addressing limiting beliefs. What do you believe and why do you believe it? Remember, the people who raised you, friends and family, imprinted all of the beliefs that you have! Why not rewrite that system?
How I Got Out of My Comfort Zone
For me, I hated going out. It was terrible to get to parties and waste time with people in public. All I saw people doing was sitting on their phones and faking like they’re having fun. I’d much rather stay home, get work done and focus on things I care about.
But when I decided to become a better version of myself, understanding why I disliked going out helped me change my perspective. Instead of telling myself, “man, going out is waste of time.” I started telling myself, “what events can I go to that will be beneficial for my business?” This question forced me to look at events from a different point of view.
I also made a list, a criteria for going out. My rules are to never go out to clubs or loud bars. If I can’t hear the person I’m talking to without yelling, it’s a waste of time. Lastly, I only go to events where my ideal clients will be present. This basic criteria helped me save a lot of time, energy and money.
Start analyzing your comfort zone and then find a way out of it. It will be one of the best decisions you ever make in your life.
