As I write to you in english you have for sure realized that I do need a lot of practice. I know ;)) Here are some of the reasons why I write in english:
- I love the UK and everything connected with it (except football!)
- I am always trying to step a bit out of my comfortzone.
- There is no german translation for words like comfortzone
Comfortzone – such a wonderful place to be! We all love to have everything nice and easy-going. And we are happy if everything just stays as it is. No unconvenience, no fuss, no confrontation… Only problem: Life wants us to grow! And it keeps sending us signs to move on. Maybe you have noticed some weird and unexplainable stuff happening in your life? Like Déjà-vus, or strange coincidences? Those are the whispers and if we don´t listen to them, the whispers will get louder. Until we finally confront ourselves and take a closer look.
So where´s the benefit of stepping out of our comfortzone?
Because that´s where life starts to get interesting! That´s where change and growth is happening. Or like some might say, thats where the magic begins. But at first it´s just uncomfortable – like going to the gym. And as we are all different, we live in different comfortzones. For one being generous is a big step, someone else is frightened to talk to strangers. Or it´s finally stopping to procrastinate.
Here´s the trick!
Whatever you choose to do: The trick is to be conscious about your step and what it does to you! For example, I´m constantly practising with scary and unconvenient phonecalls. Today I´m not that frightened anymore and I don´t avoid those calls for days or longer like I used to do. And it has positive sideeffects on other situations, where I can face and handle my anxiousness much better.
So whatever your daring moments are: with each little step and each try you´ll make a great experience! That awesome „tadaa“ feeling! Like: Yes! I did it!!! And I survived ;) And then? You will see how those experiences will help you change for being clearer, happier and more confident! Promise, it works! :)
Like Baz Luhrman put it straight back in the 90s:
“Do one thing everyday that scares you!” Here´s his awesome song about it – it offers great and really helpful advice, besides from wearing sunscreen ;)
