Bismillahir rahmanir raheem
I would say I identify as an introvert, so when it comes to stepping outside of my comfort zone traditionally I haven’t been great at it. One of the things I’ve come to learn after having my son is that to progress in life, to get the maximum out of it, you HAVE TO step outside of your comfort zone.
WHAT EXACTLY IS A COMFORT ZONE
A comfort zone is a place where you feel safe and stress and anxiety is minimised. This isn’t always a bad thing. You need this space. After going out and battling the world you need a safe space to clear your mind. However, living in this space all the time is not where you’ll thrive.
WHY YOU NEED TO STEP OUT OF IT
Stepping out of your comfort zone and finding your optimal anxiety level is one of the best things you can do. Studies have shown that optimal anxiety, (the sweet spot of anxiety) is performance and alertness are optimised. And who doesn’t want to work to their optimum right?
HOW I OVERCAME AND YOU CAN TOO
As I continue my journey as a newly qualified life coach, I came to the realisation that I needed a mentor. Someone to show me the ropes and help to to contribute in my development (coaches need coaches too you know!)
This is usually where I would stop and I assume where most introverts would. Often, people think introverts are lazy/unwilling to work but that’s not the case. Most of the time we’re freaking out in our heads trying to figure out how we we achieve what we want in life WITHOUT leaving our comfort zones. Well, sorry to break it to you but that’s just not possible.
SO now it’s your turn! STEP OUTSIDE OF YOUR COMFORT ZONES. Put your trust in Allah swt, and give life a chance!
As I break down my barriers, I want to help you do the same in your own lives. That’s why I’ll be sharing more of my journey and opening a secret Facebook group for Personal Development. If you’d like to join, send a DM to my Facebook page ChristalBlogs and inshaAllah I will add you.
