Beyond Comfort Zones
Who wants to be uncomfortable? NOBODY!
But being uncomfortable in a constructive sense, means that youíre developing and growing!
Letís illustrate this.
Hereís an example of two people. One by the name of Jerry, and the other by the name of Bill.
Example 1: BILL
Bill dreams of a great social life. Bill also has social anxiety and is scared stiff in approaching other people. He canít do this when grocery shopping, when taking his kids to a soccer game, or even when wanting to ask a girl out on a date. Bill also avoids picking up phone calls, and goes out his way to not make friends. Heís had a gym membership for 3 years and has only gone 10 times! He hates doing anything social and would rather be comfortable and safe at home.
Example 2: JERRY
Jerry also has social anxiety, and has the same fears as Bill.
Jerry has been doing research on his anxieties, and is determined to change his life. He knows that he canít achieve his life goals or dreams without other people. So, he makes it a goal to see as many people as possible. He purposely works out at the gym every day in the afternoon during rush hour. He makes it a goal to say hi to 5 people a day, and start conversations with 2 of them. He signed up for classes at his gym; Yoga and Weight Training. Jerryís even made a facebook page. Heís doing all he can to improve his chances of success in creating his dream social life.
Now, who do you think will achieve SUCCESS faster?
Of course, Jerry! Heís modified his environment with desire boosters, and made a commitment to change his mind set in regards to people and socializing. Whereas Bill is hung up in his old ways and is resistant to change.
Getting out of your comfort zone may be uncomfortable now, but the more uncomfortable you get now the more comfortable youíll be later!http://www.2manifestmore.com/forum.php- Tune Your Mind for Prosperity!

Agreed. The same can be said about lifting of course. A lot of people work out and leave some in the tank. What kind of results do you think they get? Few, few is the right answer. Compare that with the kid who goes in, goes ape shžt, and leaves it all there at the gym. Who prevails in the end? The guy who went balls to the wall, who went into that dark place where he abandoned his body and his needs and went all the way, through the pain and self-doubt, all the way to the end to reach his goals.
Back to your point, though, you definitely have to do that with any of your fears - face them head on - in order to succeed. All fear does is hold you back in life. To experience fear is completely natural, but to not expose yourself to certain things or situations in life because of fear is to have phobias. These neurotic behaviors just lead to an abandon of any drive to live. Engage your fears, expose yourself to unfamiliar situations, and you will become stronger, happier, and succeed in life.
