In my previous blog I promised to talk about one of the obstacles that keeps us stuck and that we're very rarely aware of.
Have you ever thought about changing your life? In a small or in a big way? Maybe you wanted to lose weight, eat healthier, spend more time with your friends and family, start a new activity? Maybe you wanted to learn a new language or a new sport, find a new job, move to another town or country? Do you remember being serious about it, telling yourself that this time you'll really do it, this time you'll stick to the plan?! And what happened? Not much. Why?
One of the reasons might be something called 'the Comfort Zone'.
Our "Comfort Zone" is a place with minimal stress and risk, a place we feel comfortable in, a place that feels safe and familiar. And as much as we may want a change in our lives, the change represents something unfamiliar and we all innately feel uncomfortable, when it comes to changes. Even when there is no real danger, we want to stay emotionally safe. And that voice inside our head saying: "I'll start tomorrow", "I don't have the time now", "I can't do that", "I'm not good at things like that", "I'm not smart enough", etc., wants us to be just that, safe, away from unpleasant emotions, away from situations that might make us vulnerable. This is the reason we tend to stick to those comfort zones and sabotage ourselves, without even knowing.
Once you are aware of the fact that you have comfort zones (and everyone does) and you decide you want to break free and try new things, EFT is a perfect tool to help you push the boundaries and achieve the changes and goals you wish to achieve. What you feel emotionally, when you step out of your familiar space, your "home", is something you can deal with with tapping and once those emotional blocks are cleared you can rise to a whole new level.
As Jack Canfield says: "Most everything that you want is just outside your comfort zone."
So get out of your comfort zone! Reach for the stars! Life is too short not to! :)
