Are you feeling a bit out of your comfort zone at the moment?
Well let me tell you 2 things if you are!
1) If you are, that’s a good thing. It’s the way we as humans grow and develop. It’s not a comfortable place to be right now but it is good for you. Recognising that might just help how you feel right now.
2) Secondly your zone of comfort changes – and that is how we grow.
Let me give you an example. Some time ago we took on a new member of staff and she started work by processing all our new member application forms. She was completely out of her comfort zone and very uncomfortable! And she didn’t like it – and almost resigned!
But – and here’s the important thing – she stuck at it – and lo and behold two weeks later (yes it was that short) she found that doing these profiles was a piece of cake, something she found almost second nature and surprise surprise no longer out of her comfort zone.
She has grown and something she found hard – and out of her comfort zone – has now become in her comfort zone.
The same is true for all of us.
Perhaps you’re feeling out of your comfort zone contacting new people. Trust me, the more you do it, the easier it will become – and if you do it regularly you will find it as natural as walking! (which once upon a time you could not do!)
And of course…. that’s the way to meet people… so don’t let a short term lack of comfort stop you in your tracks.
