Have you ever been driving your car and suddenly realized you left the emergency brake on? Did you push down harder on the gas to overcome the drag of the brake? No, of course not. You simply released the brake, and with no extra effort, you started to go faster.
A lot of people go through life with a psychological emergency brake on. They hold negative images of themselves and suffer from all the effects and powerful experiences. Everyone, especially Asians, have a tendency of living in their own comfort zone. Their social groups because their culture restricts them to speaking to people outside their nationality.
In addition to individuals, we have a lot of inaccurate beliefs about reality or harbour guilt and self doubt.
I want you to think of it this way, your comfort zone is a prison you live in. A confined area that you just can’t break free from…..they included the collection of can’t, musts, must nots, and other unfounded beliefs.
I like the story Jack Canfield talked about that pertained to a baby elephant. This baby elephant is tied down to a wooden post. The elephant’s area is determined by the length of the rope….the elephant’s comfort zone. So, years later, when the elephant turns into a massive 5-ton beast, it doesn’t even try to cut loose from the rope because it was conditioned as a baby not to.
Perhaps this also describes you. You’re trapped, or you feel you are. You harbour all the limiting beliefs about yourself and images that you took in while you were young. If this describes you, the good news is that you can change your comfort zone. How? There are four different ways:
- You can use affirmations and positive self-talk to affirm already having what you want, doing what you want, and being the way you want.
- You can create powerful and compelling new internal images of having, doing, and being what you want.
- You can use the revolutionary technique called Tapping Therapy.
- You can simply change your behavior.
