Stepping Out Of Your Comfort Zone

The Splinter In Your Mind: Why You’re Not Happy With Your Life

Do you ever sit back and wonder why other people are living these extraordinary lives such as traveling the world, waking up at 10 am every day, having a personal chef cooking them meals and basically feeling like they’re on top of the world? These people have done something differently than you have: they’ve learned to step out of their comfort zone. That’s what you need to start doing too!

Many of us are not content with our lives because we feel like something is missing. We wake up every day and to a certain extent, repeat the same activities over and over again. Today you might do something slightly different than yesterday, but tomorrow it’s likely that you’ll go back to square one. No matter what you change, it always feels like you’re not making progress.

Do you ever wonder why? It’s because you’re not really making a change; you’re not stepping out of your comfort zone. You’ve programmed your life to remain stationary and safe because doing otherwise would be a threat to your security. But we need threats to our security in order to expand ourselves.

Sometimes it feels like if you do the opposite of what your mind tells you, you’ll end up with more satisfactory results; it’s contradictory but sometimes proves to be right. What do I mean by this? Well, you’ve programmed your mind to believe in certain things and to perform certain actions that make you feel comfortable; anything otherwise is a threat to your comfort level.

But if you try doing the opposite of what you’re used to doing every once in a while, you’ll start to gain newfound confidence and feel like a breath of fresh air. That’s because your mind wants new experiences and situations, but it’s you who is holding yourself back. If your mind didn’t want new experiences, you wouldn’t be having the annoying internal battle that often feels like there’s a splinter in your mind.

The only way to retrieve that splinter and discard it for good is by stepping out of your comfort zone and trying new places and things. You’ll find that it’s quite difficult at first because you lack the power to do it, but the more that you practice it, the easier it will become. The first step is finding the desire within you to change your life; once you find that, you’ll head onto the right track to improving your current situation.

That’s the difference between you and the people who have personal chefs cooking them meals.

  1. The first step is always the hardest but never impossible. Sticking with that change is the 2nd hardest step. These steps are necessary if one wants to improve their quality of life. How would you know what’s on the other side of the door if you don’t step outside and look? Good article.

  2. You always have a way of causing the reader to self-reflect. Complacency is the devilish rut and habit is the wheel. It hurts when you run over the splinter where it is only pushed further affection more elements in life. To stop before re-offending is crucial if you ultimately wish to remove the splinter, you must brace yourself. Ultimately, one must ultimately reinvent themselves if they wish to feel fulfilled. It will take a lot of discipline but is well worth it! πŸ’—πŸ’—
