How to step out of your comfort zone?

Hi Pearls,

 

sometimes we need a change, an adventure or at least a new beginning. For me the decision to move to Hamburg was based on a great job opportunity. I worked very hard the last years, to get where I am now, but to leave Munich and my friends was not easy. But nothing worth having comes easy & in my case I needed to step out of my comfort zone to learn & grow my skills.

 

How can you step out of your comfort zone?

 

1. Stop, taking care about other opinions: Base your decision on your own dreams. One of the biggest issues that holds many of us back is our fear of what people think. After all, you don't want people to think you're weird or rude or creepy, do you? But wait - think about the most fascinating, magnetic people you've come across in your life. The thing is that they weren't the everybody's darling, agreeable people who are reliably pleasant to be around. They were the people who were crazy and charming. People who don't care about other opinions, who maybe do inappropriate things, or who made huge, slap-your-forehead mistakes. So get over your concerns for what people think of you. You're allowed to be less than perfect, and you may find that people like you more for it, because it makes you a more exciting person to be around.Do something you normally wouldn't do & be brave enough to strive for your own life goals.

 

2. Start taking risks. Your comfort zone is comfortable because it's where you know what to expect. To Risk sth can be scary because you might fail. You might lose something. But you might also gain something. In order to become comfortable with that uncertainty, you'll need to practice the following: Non-attachment. When you decide to do something, don't expect a particular result. Let go of your attachment to a certain outcome; instead, focus on the joy of doing whatever you're doing. Live in the moment.

 

3. Enjoy the unknown. When is the last time you felt excited about not knowing what was going to happen next? If you're deep in your comfort zone, it's probably been a while. Don't you miss it? Don't you miss the mixture of anticipation and anxiety that makes your heart flutter and stomach turn at the same time? Bring that feeling back into your life.

 

When you step out of your comfort zone, remind yourself that the unknown does not have to be scary and that you can face any situation life throws at you. You can grow as a person, become more confident, gain new experiences, and enrich your life.

 

Lots of Love,

Amelie
