Boot Camp Instructor 5 Ways To Step Out of Your Comfort Zone

This is a guest blog post by my friend and Colleague Leanne Ellington

It’s easy to get stuck inside of comfort. Afterall, comfort keeps us safe– it keeps us nurtured. More importantly though, comfort saves us from ever having to step outside the box and try new things– it saves us from failing.

But who says that failing is a bad thing? Isn’t it our mistakes that teach us new things, life-lessons, and give us valuable take-aways?

Eventually though, it will be time for you to step away from the known and venture out into new and exciting things. Don’t get me wrong, it’s one of the scarier things to do in life, but it’s all the more rewarding.

Below I’ve given you 6 ways to make that transition a little bit easier and step outside of your comfort zone.

1. Try Something New…

Are you guilty of eating at the same restaurants over and over again? Have you been meaning to pick up that guitar in the corner and learn some chords? Have you wanted to start a fitness or weight loss program, but are putting it off? Are you one of those people that goes to the same places, the same bars or social scenes, or the same vacation spot year after year? It’s time to venture out! Try that new sushi joint you have been meaning to try. Pick a new hot-spot to meet friends. Just try something new. You won’t regret it.

2. Strike Up A Conversation With A Stranger….

When was the last time you went up to a complete stranger and started a conversation? Or have you ever maybe walked by someone wearing a cool shirt and wondered where it was from, but were too scared to go up and ask them? Rip off the band-aid and just go up to someone. What’s the worst that could happen? If some rejects you for being friendly or outgoing, you don’t want them as a friend anyways. Remember, you are awesome! Wouldn’t YOU want to know YOU?

3. Join Forces With A Friend…

If you are new to this whole stepping outside of your comfort zone thing, no one said you have to go at it alone. Recruit a friend to “hold your hand” the first time or give you support when you get wherever it is you are going. Lean on the support of your friends and supporters to help pave the way and then finally work up the courage to go at it alone. Especially if getting out of your comfort zone has to do with health and fitness. Studies have show time and time again that those that go at it with a friend or some sort of social support are more than 50% more likely to success. Go grab a friend and get out there!

4. Make A Bucket List…

Write down all the things you could ever dream of doing– all the things you have always wanted to do or wish you had the guts to do. Hang it up on your fridge. Just the act of visualizing amazing things– things that might make you step outside your comfort zone and live a little bit is a really liberating process. Then pick just one thing, do it, and cross it off your list. You still have plenty of time to do those other things on the list, but take a small step and complete just one of them. It will feel sooo darn good to check it off your list!

5. Remember Every Single Day How AMAZING You Are….

Sometimes we tend to stand in our own way.

A lot of times inaction is simply a matter of lack of self-confidence or awareness.

Take time every day to focus on your awesome, unique qualities and remember every single day how AMAZING you are.

Try to work towards your goals every single day and make yourself better and better.

Feeling great about yourself is one sure way to help you get over your fears and step out of your comfort zone.

So…. which one are you going to tackle first?
