You’ve probably heard the saying, “life begins at the end of your comfort zone.”
But how are we supposed to find the edges of our comfort zones so that we can push past them?
That’s what we’re going to focus on for the next few weeks of Quality Questions, starting right now.
The first thing you should know is that the fence around your comfort zone is fear.
It’s also helpful to recognize that you probably don’t have one single comfort zone. Instead, you have varying levels of comfort in different areas of life (relationships, work, spirituality, etc).
Let’s start with work. Ask yourself:
If you were truly fearless, what would you be doing to make a living?
What if you knew that you couldn’t fail?
And you weren’t worried about what anyone else would say.
Imagine if you could wave a magic wand and instantly change your reality.
What would you do then?
Think deeply about a means of making money that would make you feel fully alive.
Maybe your career would be more creative?
Perhaps you would commit to a global cause that you care about?
Maybe you would finally start the company you’ve been dreaming of?
Write down what a career without fear looks like and use that as a guide to the direction you should lean in your future choices.
