I listen to many people telling me that they want to do something else with their life. They are not happy with their current situation, either with their job or their relationship or circumstances within their families. When I ask them what they are doing to change their situation they never really have an answer. I only hear lots of excuses of why they are not able to change their situation and they stick with the same old habits and stay within their ‘comfort zone’. The issue with the ‘comfort zone’ though, is that it can be a negative environment and it withholds you from personal growth and change in general.
Even though you’re in a negative environment, it’s hard to get out of it because you are so used to it and think that this is where you are supposed to be. We all learn to set goals and follow our goals no matter what and we should do what society tells us. We’ve been taught at home, in schools, by the government and by our religion, what we should believe in, how we should think, how we should act and what we should know. We’ve been enclosed into a small box and are taught to stay inside that box and just keep doing the things we were taught to do.
Sometimes though, the goals we’ve set aren’t the correct ones because they do not represent who we truly are and we’ve set those goals being completely disconnected from our true inner self. If you find along the way that everything is working against you to achieve your goal then you should reconsider if you’re taking the correct road. Sometimes it’s not even the goal that is incorrect but just the road you are taking to achieve that goal and you should follow a different road. Most importantly you should listen to your intuition and feel what is right for you.
If you feel your goal isn’t right or it doesn’t represent who you are anymore then you can change your goal. There is nothing wrong with change, as we all grow older, get different views, change our opinions and see the world from a different perspective. Don’t stick to something just because you said it once, while you already feel it’s not for you anymore. Make new goals and trust in your inner power and intuition who knows what is best for you.
When you’ve made new goals, start making plans on how to achieve it and be open-minded. Try to see the different roads you can take and choose the right one. It doesn’t have to be the easiest one, most of the time it’s not the easiest one but it will be the most rewarding one. A reward isn’t only money, a reward is way bigger than that, don’t get stuck in the materialistic world. Rewards are life lessons, perspectives, opinions, changes, progress, helping others and becoming or being a good person.
If we make up in our minds that we are not capable of achieving something because we think it’s too difficult, then we will never be able to achieve it. It’s all about our mindset. It’s most important to believe in yourself and if what you do will benefit others as well, you’re doing the right thing.
Don’t be scared of leaving your ‘comfort zone’, embrace the change, make the steps and do what you believe is right for you. Don’t let others tell you what you should or shouldn’t do. We are all unique and we all came on this planet to do something special. You don’t need to be famous to do something special, you don’t need to be a millionaire to do something special. To do something special, you need to stay true to yourself and find joy in what you do.
If you do the right things, the universe will help you to achieve those goals and you need not worry about finances, being unemployed, your mortgage or bills to pay. It will all fall in to place, as long as you put the work in for the right reasons and with a positive attitude.
Believe in your own capabilities.
