Get out of your comfort zone!
If you want to grow and move forward in your life, you will need to get out of your comfort zone. We all have a voice in our head that keeps telling us lies, a voice that we all have and until we learn to control it, it will totally run our lives forever.
You see your comfort zone is your subconscious trying to keep you safe. That’s what it’s job is. Your subconscious has learnt over the years that you have been on earth that the best way to keep you safe is to repeat the things that have kept you safe before.
It knows that if you do new things in your life it might be a dangerous area to move in to, and that’s why it keeps telling you that its a very bad idea. I came across this poem about a little robot that describes the subconscious mind better than I can. It goes like this:
“I have a little robot, that goes around with me,
I tell him what I am thinking, I tell him what I see,
I tell my little robot all my hopes and fears,
It listens and remembers all the things it hears,
At first my little robot followed my command,
…but after years of training, it’s gotten out of hand,
It does not care what’s right or wrong,
Or what is false or true,
But no matter what I try now, it tells me what to do!”
Our mind is made up of so many false facts, stories and lies that we start believing all of this rubbish, and this adds to our poor self image.
Do you think its possible to walk on fire? Two years ago we went to see Tony Robbins live in London, and on the very first day of the event, Tony taught us how to take control of our minds and at the end of the evening our whole family walked over red hot coals totally unhurt. Wow. If you can walk on fire, what else can you do? What is your subconscious robot telling you that isn’t true?
