Here for Men to enrich and grow to their best potential !
Once a man is done with his work, the first thing he feels like doing is getting into his shorts, hitting the bed and watching Netflix. He no longer wants to chit chat with his colleagues or network with others as he is too tired after a long day at work and wants a night of slumber. However, your comfort zone will never let you grow and you need to get out of it as soon as possible.
So you start your day by preparing a nice breakfast for yourself and get ready for work at the same time. You are humming a song while getting ready. The world seems to be a perfect place for you. Along with that, work goes steady and normal everyday. Nothing seems to be hectic or stressful as the day passes by. Finally the day ends and you are back home to sleep peacefully with no tension at the back of your mind eating you up. Well, whether you know this or not, this is your comfort zone, a place where you are so comfy that nothing challenges you and hence, makes you productive.
While the comfort zone can be truly comfortable and a place that no man wants to leave, the fact is that it is a place which is supposed to be left. Your comfort zone doesn’t let your brain change as your needs are always met and you have no stress. It basically leads to a steady performance which is why you need to step out of your comfort zone. Still not convinced? Have a look at some of the few reasons for leaving your comfort zone.
Imagine that you had never gone to school and learned. Or you had neer been to college. Would you have been able to learn all that you know right now? Would you have been as wise as you are right now? If you prefer going home after work to watch a web series or a movie, start going out with friends to grow. Start networking to see the growth in yourself. It will be worth it!
So perhaps you are not someone who likes sports or outdoor activities and likes to cuddle with a book as well as a cup of coffee. However, when it comes to getting out of your comfort zone you need to challenge yourself and try out different activities. How about joining a baseball team with a couple of friends to try out something new? Or you could even try out some adventure sports like scuba diving or skydiving to challenge yourself. There is a whole list of activities out there!
When we talk about mindfulness, it is not just any other type of meditation that you can go for. Mindfulness teaches you to stay in the present as well as to be less afraid of the unknown. If you are a man who gets anxious quite easily, mindfulness is the right option for you. This is a type of meditation that will help you boost your confidence as well as your self esteem as you will always stay in the present.
When you are in your comfort zone, taking risks is never an option for you. You live the same routine life as it is and never think about doing something out of the blue. However, in order to get out of the comfort zone, taking risks is pretty much necessary. No, it does not mean that you must invest all your savings in stocks, only to lose it all. We are talking about calculated risks here. Think about the pros and cons of the risk and then take your final decision.
As you are trying to get rid of your old habits while trying to get out of your comfort zone, you will discover what you are truly made of. You will find out what all you can really handle and how little you have thought of yourself. Along with that, as you try to step out of your comfort zone, you will be able to find new and better opportunities for yourself that will lead to further growth.
