If a seed is planted on infertile ground, will it grow? I
think not. In this case the infertile ground is the comfort zone, and I am sure you know who the seed is. In the past two weeks we have spoken about the danger of staying in your comfort zone and how to get yourself out of the comfort zone. Now that you have managed to pluck yourself out of infertile ground here is what to expect from your newly found fertile ground.
YOU REALIZE YOUR ‘REAL LIFE’
You will start to realize that all this time you weren’t living your life. In fact you were just existing but not living. You will find that when you get out of your comfort zone you look forward to the next day more than you did before. Everything around you will excite you a little more, the things you used to ignore you start to notice. You step into a world of endless possibilities and that alone gives you a quality life.
CHALLENGING YOURSELF PUSHES YOU TO DIG DEEPER
You stop playing on the surface, it just isn’t enough for you anymore. You dive into the spaces many wouldn’t and you take chances that lead you into healthy mental space. You will find that your confidence will be boosted too. Talk about a life filled with adventure.
YOU WILL BE ABLE TO DEAL WITH CHANGE
We live in a word that is constantly changing and for many this is a very scary thing. The moment you decide the comfort zone is not your home you will be ready to face change. When change comes it is a new project to sharpen your skills and instead of dreading it you will jump into it with enthusiasm.
YOUR PERFORMANCE IMPROVES
Not just in your work but even in your social life. Your mood is lighter, you engage better with people and in return you learn more from your surroundings and the people around you. The people around you will even learn more about you, the real you and what you can do. Out the box you go!
YOU BECOME MORE CREATIVE
Now that you have stepped out of the cage, locked it and thrown the key away your new journey will open you up to start thinking outside of the box. the ideas you used to shut out and thought were unrealistic become realistic, you being to implement them. It is in this moment that you will learn that you great at this life thing.
RISKS WILL BRING ABOUT GROWTH EXPERIENCES
Any risk you take will definitely be an experience and it is not always a good experience. Here is the thing though, good or bad experience the end result is growth. From that point on you are only going to aim for the top, you will aim to do better or more depending on what the experience was. New horizons!
At this point I hope you crave to live in this world more than the other. I hope you are on your way to breaking barriers and shaming those that have always thought you would never. We only have one life and we have to make the best of it and the best is found outside the cage.
