You have probably been in that place where things around you look and feel too familiar. The place where there are no challenges anymore and instead there is a strong urge to step outside and try something new. What’s it like for you to be comfortable? And how do you know when it is time to get out that comfort zone?.
There are clear signals from inside and outside our bodies that direct our attention to reach out for more. Awareness of these signals is crucial, as it is a call to stay relevant and alive in whatever we do in life. So awareness of “wanting more” or “not getting enough” can be seen as healthy signals to remind our mind to pay attention to the level of engagement we have with challenge. This means, looking around you and reflecting on what else can be done with what you already have. Similarly, identifying what is it that you are truly looking to move towards?
As you test and obtain feedback during this process you will find the confidence to embrace new challenges, see what is already working and what needs to be stretched within you. Trust your instinct to step into a space of discomfort. This is what is needed to create a new space that allows you to stretch out towards new challenges.
If you are currently in a space of discomfort, you might be already stretching out towards new challenges. This might be also an opportunity to check where and what your energy is focused on.
The following tips might assist you to take a step into this discomfort zone, or perhaps better we can call it “Courage Zone” as it takes courage to move into.
- Take the step by step approach, and secure clarity on the meaning and value of the challenge ahead.
- Question the people who know you best to obtain honest and quality feedback.
- Base your strategy to bring new challenges on well informed decisions that are congruent with your values and purpose.
- Understand what are you moving away from and what you would like to move towards.
