Break Out Of Your Comfort Trap!
You know what a comfort trap is, right? It’s that familiar job you go to each day. It’s not a bad job and you do it well, but it doesn’t satisfy you any more. It’s the relationship that you have been hanging on to, even though you know it was over a long time ago. Comfort traps come in many forms. It can be a relationship with a family member whose behavior feels toxic to you, but you can’t bring yourself to put distance between yourself and that person. A comfort trap is any situation that you dream of escaping, but you are too afraid to leave. It feels safer to stay where you are, because change is scary.
I felt this way too, until I realized that being in the same situation five, ten or fifteen years in the future, was a thought that was even more terrifying.
So, how does one get out of a comfort trap? By taking small incremental steps toward the outcome you want to see. The first steps are generally speaking, fairly easy. Each step you complete, leads you to the next step in the process. It’s a simple process, but it has to be acted upon to work. As your Coach, I will guide you each step of the way until you have made the change you want to make.
The same process applies to any comfort trap you want to break out of. Take the first step and the momentum will build. One day, you will look back and wonder what you were so afraid of.
