Changes Start Outside of Your Comfort Zone

Changes start outside of your comfort zone. You have to push yourself in ways you may never have before to see results. It is easy to continue down a path you don’t feel threatened by, heck that is why you are there in the first place! It’s comfortable and you aren’t at risk of doing something you don’t like. But, in order to see some real changes, you have to open yourself up to the possibility of being uncomfortable.

Realize where you can make these changes

Here is a personal example for you guys. All I wanted to do yesterday when I got home was to sit on the couch. I wanted to skip my workout and just be flat out lazy. Instead what did I do? When I got home, I immediately went into the room, changed into my workout clothes, filled up my water bottle, and got to work. And guess how I felt after? I felt amazing! I was in a better mood and also felt a sense of pride for overcoming that negative funk I was in.

Don’t be intimidated by change

Best advice I have here, don’t think about it for too long. Just do it! Let’s say you want to do a certain fitness class; but then you start thinking too far into it, perhaps thoughts like, “what if I can’t keep up?” or “people might judge me.” Stop thinking like that NOW! Push past those thoughts and instead put yourself out there (and when I say “out there” I am talking about outside of your comfort zone).

Take Away

Use the moments that you overcame your battles as tools for success. Keep track of them and always remember of how strong you can be. Motivate yourself by your strength and dedication and keep pushing forward!
