Expand Your Comfort Zone

We all have things that we find to be uncomfortable. It could be a smaller issue like: trying new foods, learning to dance, or trying to learn a new computer program.

Or it could be a much bigger issue such as: flying, speaking in front of large groups, getting in the water, or leaving your house. Whatever your issue, minor or major there are ways to help you expand your comfort zone.

The first step in this delicate process is that you have to be ready to do it. Very rarely does being forced into something work out well.

What usually happens is the person being forces resents being pushed and pulls back even further, making it nearly impossible to ever pull them back out into a place where maybe they might be willing to give it a shot. So, the person must be a willing participant if he/she has any chance of expanding his/her comfort zone.

Next, it is so important, let me repeat that, it is so important to let go of all judgment you have of yourself. You are not a bad person because you have fears, or insecurities, everyone, and again I mean everyone does.

It is amazing what we are willing to try when we feel good about ourselves. So that is super important, let go of the judgments and work on building your self-esteem and self-confidence.

The next step is to realize, depending on the severity of the issue, that it may take many baby steps. The best way to take baby steps is to practice, practice, and practice. If you know exactly what to expect it takes so much of the fear away. And while you are practicing talk yourself through every step giving yourself encouragement.

Realize that every baby step is expanding the level of your comfort, so every time you take a step, acknowledge that accomplishment. And once you have taken several baby steps, reward yourself. It will keep you motivated and focused on your ultimate goal of expanding your comfort zone by overcoming a fear or issue.

It also wouldn’t hurt to get someone to help you out. It can be a family member, friend, or personal coach. Just make sure you chose someone who is completely supportive of what you are doing.

Do not choose someone who is going to tease you or make you feel bad because you are terrified to get on a plane. By having someone supportive they can congratulate you when you succeed or help you re-group if you fail.

You can and will overcome your fear, if you put to practice the steps outlined in this article. Remember you must be ready to move forward, or it has no shot of working, you must also let go of any and all judgments of yourself, then you have to build up your self-confidence, and self-esteem, followed by baby steps, in the form of practice, concluding by having someone helping you out, encouraging you along the way. Do all those things and you are well on your way to expanding your comfort zone!
