Comfort Zone

Extend your comfort zone.

Practice conditions that scare you, every day.

“The only way out is through. Be fearless. ”What are the most prevalent fears?

  • Death: Practice not “owning” things. Give. Or, rather gather experiences. Little by little the detachment will remove fear and replaces it by an ecstatic eagerness to live fully.
  • Rejection: Become a sales person. Cold calling, cold emailing and car sales immune you to hearing NOs and rejections.
  • Loneliness: Travel alone. Walk alone. Think alone. Move to a new country. Meditate alone. You’ll be amazed how rewarding it is to be aware of your already existing loneliness.
  • Homelessness: Become a nomad for a while. Stay at cheap Airbnbrooms. Couchsurf. Stay in hostels. You’ll learn about freedom of choice on your lifestyle.
  • Vulnerabilities: Make a habit of jumping out of your shell, whenever a vulnerability whispers to hold you back. The following flow of endorphin will bring a smile on your face every time
Only when you suffer the pain, you find your bliss. You’ll realize there are solutions beyond what you initially planned for.

“SET ASIDE A CERTAIN NUMBER OF DAYS, DURING WHICH YOU SHALL BE CONTENT WITH THE SCANTIEST AND CHEAPEST FARE, WITH COURSE AND ROUGH DRESS, SAYING TO YOURSELF THE WHILE: ‘IS THIS THE CONDITION THAT I FEARED?’” – SENECA
