A question I get asked all the time is ‘How Do I Get Out of My Comfort Zone?’ The thing is if your not sure if you are out of your comfort zone then you definitely are not. The simple answer to the question is if you feel uncomfortable then you are outside that thing called a comfort zone.
I recently spent a day up in Far North Queensland at a local Parkrun. Everyone who completes the free timed 5 kilometre run is getting out of their comfort zone big time. There are people in their 80’s running, parent’s pushing prams, over weight people who are inspiring as they walk the 5 k’s.
It’s a fabulous thing to do every Saturday and they are held all around the world so there is no excuse for not doing joining in.
How Do I get Out of My Comfort Zone?
I need to send a big thanks to Lorraine Lawson who is the run director and all the volunteers and runners for joing me and allowing me to speak to them in the video. Cairns parkrun started back in August of 2013 with 35 runners (I was one of them!) and now regulary gets between 150 and 200 Parkrunners a week.
So my question is what are you doing to get out of your comfort zone and are you going to tell me about it? You can leave a comment below. Would love to hear what you are doing to improve your life and become the best you can.
So many people remain stuck in their lives, never fully reaching their full potential. We get caught up in minor drama’s and think that is our life. It’s only when we start living in the present moment that we realise there is so much more to our true self.
Getting out of our comfort zones demands a real effort and not some idea that sounds good but doesn’t last.
I know so many people who hate their jobs but stay with them for fear of not being able to find what it is they love. And of course most people don’t even know what it is that they love!
If you can relate to this then maybe it’s time you started taking stock.
Here are 5 quick tips to help you find your passion –
- Stop hanging around with negative people. They will stop you growing
- . Spend a weekend going deep inside yourself and unearth what it is that you truly love.
- Spend more time with positive people. People who will support your ideas and offer to help.
- get a morning routine happening – Meditate – exercise – run, swim or walk every morning.
- Start working out how you can make a living by doing what it is you love.
Your time is now. Stop waiting. Tomorrow never comes. You already know that! Don’t stay stuck in a job that you hate. You are wasting your life and we only have so many days on this earth.
As all those who take part in Parkrun know, life is what you make of it everyday. Today is your day…
