Key Ideas

The fear of getting out of your comfort zone

We are all afraid of new experiences, especially of the ones that require us to leave the safety of our comfort zone.

The way we react whenever this occurs has a big influence on how we live our life: instead of being scared, why not trying to embrace the new challenges with optimism and self-confidence? The results might be quite impressive.

What shapes our mindsets

Our mindset is said to be shaped by previous experiences as well as by a reward-based learning system.

Getting the necessary motivation while facing new challenges with a positive mindset can truly change your experience.

Learn to grow outside of your comfort zone

One useful thing to remember when facing challenges is that having a growth mindset allows you to live a less stressful and more successful life. Therefore, take any given opportunity to you learn and, therefore, grow from your experiences. Three steps worth considering when you find yourself outside your comfort zone:

  • evaluate your reactions to new situations
  • try to become curious when realizing that you are out of your comfort zone
  • take every new challenge as an opportunity to learn.

Mindset is a belief system

It includes the ideas we have about ourselves and the world around us. 

These beliefs come from our innate dispositions, childhood experience and/or cultural/societal influence and are often entrenched.

Examine the evidence

If you believe you can’t learn new skills or change the way you work, look at the evidence that supports both your negative and positive beliefs.

This may not necessarily lead to a modification of those beliefs, but is an important start. You can use belief monitoring to keep track of your thinking.
