Let Positivity Boost You Past Your Comfort Zone

Why do negative thoughts stand out so much more than positive thoughts? You could have 10 people compliment your work and 1 person criticize it. The negative criticism tends to dominate the rest.

Negative, hurtful, and unkind words can have a lasting effect on your confidence and make you want to stay where you’re safe – perfectly okay in your comfort zone doing the same thing you’ve always done in the same way you’ve always done it.

Get past your comfort zone

Venturing past your comfort zone can be scary, making you feel awkward and vulnerable. It’s totally understandable to not even want to go any further.

Here’s what Dwayne Johnson, “The Rock”, says about that:

"A comfort zone is a beautiful place, but nothing grows there."

It takes courage to get out of your comfort zone, to deal with what people might say or think, to focus on the positive  messages instead of fixating on the negative.

Let positivity give you a boost.

Don’t let negativity keep you from growing, from discovering the genius that lies within you.

Allow positive thoughts, words, and ideas to assure your mind and body that you’re safe even though you’re stretching your limits. That’s the how you’ll grow.

Be encouraged. Flood your mind with positivity to help you discover that you really can do what you thought for sure you couldn’t do.

    Wow! Thank you! It takes constant effort to get out of our comfort zone. A friend ofrom mine, says to put a rubber band around your wrist, and every time you think of negative thoughts, pull that band back and let it rip! I done it a few times and now if I have a negative thoughts or bad self talk I think about that pain. TRY IT! And don’t be a wimp when have to use it.
