The Self-Confidence to Come Out of Your Comfort Zone


Here’s how I picture a comfort zone – Think of a comfort zone as an emotional boundary within which you feel safe and comfortable. It’s like invisible electrical fencing that has the power to zap you with an emotional shock if you try to go outside the protective boundaries.

Can you see how a lack of self-confidence, which is basically a lack of belief in yourself, can keep you in a self-imposed and safe comfort zone?

Lack of confidence keeps you from taking risks – I’m not talking jumping out of a plane without a parachute, I’m taking risks that you know that if you took would propel you personally or professionally toward success.

Self-confidence allows you to:
1. Analyze the positives and negatives of a situation from a position of empowerment – you can rationally balance the pros and cons. You’ll have the confidence to go for your dreams even when others may not be as encouraging as you’d like them to be.

2. Grow yourself personally and professionally. Go to the classes or networking events where you can meet new people and learn new things.

3. It allows you to SEE opportunities that are right in front of you. Coming out of your comfort zone and having the self-confidence to take a risk allows to seek out and find those new opportunities to stretch your wings and fly. With self-confidence there is less of a fear of failure. Belief in yourself and abilities means understanding making a mistake is just an opportunity to learn and grow.

Self-confidence allows you to explore your true potential and to soar with the eagles.

If you’re struggling or feeling stuck, ask yourself this: “Am I allowing myself the thrill of trying new things, exploring new opportunities and coming out on my comfort zone? Or, is fear holding me back? Am I limiting my own ability to fly and soar?”
