S:1271 Principle: Comfort Zone

(Principles are basic truths that, when applied, cause success to come to you easier and quicker.)


Rather than trying to grow by pushing yourself out of your comfort zone (common advice) how about simply expanding your comfort zone? There are many ways.

Give up the push. That may be hard for some because their conditioning has the push model deeply ingrained. They identify with the struggle. “Anything worth having has to be earned.” humm…… Really?

Embrace the idea that you are more than you currently think. There’s more You for you to grow into than you realize. Any competent Coach will tell you everybody ‘holds themselves small’, not seeing their full potential. (That’s why Coaches have a Coach.)

Raise your personal standards, one by one. There are always parts of your life in which you have been holding back, not living up to a standard you want. Pick one and make an incremental shift. It doesn’t have to be big; it just has to be. It can even be easy.

Notice your comfort zone growing as you grow.


Coaching Point: Have you expanded your comfort zone before? Can you do it again?
