There are many people in this world who want to do great things, but many of these great things will never happen because these people are stuck in their comfort zones. Once you realize that the only thing that has stopped you is your comfort zone, your journey will begin. There are many reasons why comfort zones affect people’s lives, but the good news is that comfort zones can be released using many different methods including technology. Once you find out what you want then you can begin to craft the path to your greatness.
Here are three scenarios in which technology can help you crush your comfort zone in your life and business:
1. Are you the person who dreams too big for their comfort zone?
Do you have a purpose that is the first thing you think of in the morning and the last thing you think of at night? The purpose that makes you feel like a piece of you is missing until you fulfill it because you were made for it?
Many people try to stifle that feeling every day because they feel they cannot make the dream come true. Once you realize that you are supposed to make the dream happen no matter how, the journey can begin.
You have to learn how to step past the naysayers and the obstacles to get to the ultimate goal, which is your manifested dream. There are going to be times when you feel like you are not good enough for the dream or the dream is bigger than you – but guess what – those are the moments when you need to push even harder than before!
One way that technology could help here is if you were to join or create groups on social media that focus on the industry or issue you want to conquer. Communicating with like-minded people who share your passion will make you feel connected. It will also help equip you with the tools and resources that you need to move to the next level in your business or purpose. Many of the groups can be found on Facebook, LinkedIn and social platforms like Meetup.
Manifest your dreams! Picture your vision in your mind’s eye every day as you work towards bringing that dream to fruition. Remember the vision on the day that you actually make that dream come true and celebrate your accomplishments because you knew that your dreams were bigger than your comfort zone.
2. Are you the person who lets fear hold you back?
There is a world out there waiting to benefit from all your great ideas, products, and services, but they can’t because you have not released them yet.
Do you know how many lives you can change just by stepping out of your comfort zone and doing what you are purposed to do? The sky’s the limit for your potential, but don’t let your comfort zone kill your journey before it starts. You are ready to knock fear and follow your path. You don’t have time for fear to stop you from your dreams becoming a reality.
You are going to do what every strong person does – feel the fear, and do it anyway. A way that technology could help here is if you were to start a social media page or a blog about your business or purpose journey. You can use tools like Canva and Design Bold to create quote cards and other graphics to tailor them to the journey you are trying to brand.
You will be surprised by how many people you will impact just by sharing. There is so much power in taking action. To do, in spite of the fear and the obstacles, people will resonate with your journey and will be motivated to take action as well.
We have to be aware of the fear in order to conquer it. We have to be aware of the triggers and the high-pressure situations that bring fear to the surface. Once we know how the fears surface, then we can be proactive and eliminate it as much as possible from the path. Fear is a prohibitor, it steals motivation and drive but if you know what is coming then you can be ready for the battle.
3. Are you the person who is ready to stand even if it means standing alone?
Sometimes in your journey, you are going to have to stand alone and you have to be okay with that fact. Everybody is not going to believe in you or your dreams. The only person who has to truly believe in you is you. Your drive can’t come from outside forces, it must come from within. Once you have a hold on that idea then you will be ready for any obstacle.
Sometimes it will hurt when you don’t get that support, but you have to press on anyway. A way that technology could help here is Livestreams or a Vlog. I mention video instead of text because of the impact. Through videos, people can see and hear your passion on a level that writing can’t provide. Videos also have the ability to go viral, which has a great impact on a business or cause. So if you don’t have support around you or people who understand, then use social media to grow the support you need for your business or cause.
Some of the platforms you can use are YouTube, Facebook, IGTV or make a website to house the videos. You have to be ready to stand for your dreams and values. People are going to try to shake you and take you off your path, but you have to see them for the distractions that they are and move forward. Remember your dreams are worth fighting for, so get ready for the battles to come before you can win the war.
Now that you have read the three scenarios, you can see how you can use technology and social presence to spring out of your comfort zone and manifest your dreams. You are enough to make your dreams happen and you are equipped with the resources to do so. Now all you have to do is to put the resources to work for you by taking action.
Today is the first day of the rest of your life! Today is the day that you step out of your comfort zone and decide that you’re going to be the person you’re meant to be. Today is the day that you decide that you are going to reach your full potential. Today is the day that you decide to meet the ultimate you!
