All Good Things Are Outside Our Comfort Zone!
This week we share a powerful message from Julio Melara. Julio's message lets us know that life gets exciting at the end of our comfort zones. The majority of people hate change or struggle to embrace it, but the truly successful are constantly pushing themselves to step outside of their comfort zones to achieve greater results in their lives personally and professionally.

One of my personal and professional goals it to help people see the world differently and therefore have the ability to change, grow and improve their lives. A lesson I have learned and personally observed over the years, is that one of the killers of human potential is the comfort zone. Today, I want to challenge you to take more risk and get out of your comfort zone. Let me explain why it’s so important.
All of us have our own “comfort zone” which, is more than an actual place, it’s a psychological/emotional/ behavioral construct that defines the routine of our daily life. Being in one’s comfort zone implies familiarity and safety. But it can become the biggest impediment in your life. While it’s typically one of the toughest things you will do, it’s also the only thing that can help you grow and transform. Did you know that experiencing a little stress and anxiety now and then is a good thing? If all you ever do is strive to stay wrapped up in your little cocoon, keeping warm and cozy, you will definitely be missing out on quite a lot--- no new experiences, no new challenges, no risks and no growth. When was the last time you did something for the first time?
The main reason people get stuck in their comfort zone is because that they fear failing and/or getting hurt in the process. But the truth be known, most of us have the ability to rise to the occasion, overcome hurdles and obstacles, and actually succeed in accomplishing something new and challenging. Here are two important reasons why you should fight to get out of your comfort zone:
- Your “real life” is out there waiting for you. Your real life exists beyond the bubble of your own personal thoughts, feelings, and beliefs. Your real life is the sum total of ALL of your experiences, not just the ones you’re comfortable with. The fact is you have no idea what you’re made of unless and until you venture outside of your own familiar world.
- No Risk- No Nothing! - taking risks, regardless of their outcome, are growth experiences. Even if you make mistakes or don’t get it right the first time there’s always these experiences you’ve had to tap into for the future. There really is no such thing as “fail” if you extract the lesson out of the experience.
One last thought on this topic. Remember when we were 6 and the world was our oyster? We colored on the walls and snuck into the cookie jar, fearless and unconcerned with the fact that a time out or spanking was headed our way. We said yes to whatever we felt like doing, and then we became adults. Our dreams and sense of adventure faded away with our imaginary friends, and we got comfortable just existing. Comfort zones are where dreams and goals go to die. The truth is we all have dreams, but most of us make excuses for not pursuing them. Often these excuses aren’t overt. It’s more like a matter of inertia, of just ignoring the dreams, of maintaining the status quo.
The best things occur when you challenge yourself and face your fears. If you think of your greatest achievements and take an inventory of the times you have demonstrated to yourself just how strong you are, you will notice it has never been while remaining within your comfort zone doing things that are easy and familiar to you. Remember, your challenges and risk experiences are cumulative. Every time you try something new, allow yourself to be open to whatever experience arises, you are learning, and expanding your repertoire of life skills and self-knowledge. It’s TIME FOR ACTION!
If your business needs marketing that works, give us a call. We're here to help!
Be blessed this week.
