I enjoy knowing what to expect in my day and throughout my life. I have developed comfort zones in many areas of my life. The dictionary defines comfort zone as a place or situation where one feels safe or at ease and without stress.
I have recently realized that over time I have developed a comfort zone of failing. I have set goals for myself and given up so often that it actually feels more familiar to give up then to follow through.
This is a breakthrough for me because now when I set a goal, and I start to justify in my head why I should not follow through, and a sense of comfort comes with that thought process, I recognize that it is because humans crave familiarity and consistency, and not because its a better decision. It is hard to go against that feeling. Its scary because what if I fail anyway? What if I don’t get the results I am hoping for?
But failure and struggle are crucial part of life that build resourcefulness and resilience. Slowly I am starting to choose the uncomfortable choice over the familiar. I am determined to make a new comfort zone. Where I set goals and crush them. Because I am worth it and so are you.
