Happy Monday y’all. I hope that you have a great week. To give you a boost, here’s a #MondayMotivation quote from author and public speaker Joshua Fields Millburn.
This quote surrounds an idea that you already know, but I’m just here to remind you. In order to grow, you have to move past your comfort zone.
One more time for the people in the back. IN ORDER TO GROW, YOU HAVE TO MOVE PAST YOUR COMFORT ZONE.
Comfort zones are so freaking cozy and warm a lot of the times. A lot of us definitely develop new ones in 2020 to now. If you’re like me, you love to stay inside with your TV shows and blankets, avoiding people at all costs. Doing anything else seems like an unnecessary job.
The danger in comfort zones, though, is that comfortability leads to stagnancy. It leads to avoidance and acceptance of your current place in life. There’s no room for growth because you genuinely don’t feel like you need to. You’re that comfortable!
If you want to achieve more, you first have to challenge yourself to break out of your little box you’ve built for yourself. It doesn’t have to be some large move, but really just one small step. Like…one page of the book you want to write. One healthy meal and more water today. Reaching out to an old friend to catch up. Or, you know, just putting on something other than sweats in this pandemic. I’m counting it!
One small step will lead to another…and another…and another. Before you know it, you’ll be right where you wanted to be. But it first starts with the commitment to break beyond what you know and love to achieve what you really want.
