I love circles. They can include anything and everything. I see them all around me: here a light bulb, lots of cd’s, some lp’s, a clock, pots with plants, pans in the kitchen, outside wheels at bicycles and cars. And a picture of circles in the field 😉
The problem with circles is, that they can also constrain you. You want to stay within the borders of the circle, and you start walking round and round and don’t see a way to get out of it.
In order to find a way out, it’s time to open your eyes (also circles). Where do you want to go?What is constraining you? What is holding you back? Often the circle forms your comfort zone and the destination lays beyond it. And how longer you explore the borders of your comfort zone, how more difficult it will get to kick your own ass to step out of it.
Every step beyond your comfort zone is difficult, it feels very dangerous. It’s like traveling to a foreign country where you don’t know the language or habits. You don’t know how people will react to your ‘normal’ self. it might seem, that it’s only possible to cross the border of your comfort zone if you are either very brave or very foolish.
I disagree. Crossing the border of our comfort zone makes us grow personally. And there are some tricks to help you. One very good trick is to become more aware of your strong points. It gives you the trust to manage unexpected situations. Five aspects of success (see menu on the top) can help you to discover your strong points. This might give you enough courage to cross your own comfort zone and start to widen your horizons.
And sometimes you just want someone to help you to discover your strong points or to hold your hand when crossing the border. That’s what I’m happy to do when I coach you 🙂
