The hardest challenge many of us will ever face is getting out of our comfort zone. The thing about the comfort zone is that we are so comfortable being there that no matter how much we want change in our life, or how much we know that things in our life should be different that we sometimes don’t realize how much we have allowed the uncomfortable to become comfortable.
Sometimes there are things that we desire and whether it’s in life or in in our relationships we may allow our comfort zone to dictate our actions instead of doing the work necessary to obtaining what we desire, and then one day we look up and say, “Why can’t I have what I want?” The answer plain and simple is we keep repeating the same patterns. We weren’t willing to do the work to have better.
We are all attracted to certain things, ranging from colors, shapes and sizes. When dealing with people we gravitate to what is familiar, to what is comfortable even when we know it’s not good for us.
The first step to having what you wantis to acknowledge that you have patterns. That doesn’t mean that patterns are a bad thing. But, if you want change in your circumstances than you have to realize that you are going to have to get out of your comfort zone. You not only need to break your old patterns, but you need to create new and more productive patterns.
This is where knowing and loving yourself is important. You have to figure out what it is that you like and dislike in the situation that you want to change, and then stop settling for what you no longer want and what doesn’twork in the life and the life that you are working to build. If you can articulate what you don’t want in your life, than it is that simple to work towards removing it from your life.
To obtain what you want in your life the changes needed could be simple or they could take a bit of work, but even with the subtlest shift in your behavior and thought process the benefits can be great.
Are there some patterns you need to change???
Love and blessings in divine order,
