EP 47 - Change and our "Comfort" Zones

In this episode, Susan discusses:

  • Changes and how they're constant and we can learn to not be pulled out of our comfort zones when changes happen.
  • The fact that comfort zones do not actually exist (just like "buttons" people say can be pushed) and they are simply feelings and a mindset that one can learn to shift in order to handle changes well.
  • Changes are nothing more than a set of unknowns and one can learn how to "know" the unknowns. 


Key Takeaways:

  • Changes affect comfort zones because they're unknowns and we can learn how to know the things that seem scary with the change. 
  • The "buttons" people talk about pushing are the same as the "comfort zones" we believe we have, yet they're nothing more than triggers, thoughts, feelings, and mindsets that are being reacted upon versus responding to - automatic vs choice. 
  • Taking baby steps and learning to know what you perceive is a total unknown at the moment of the change is the key to managing the change without feeling as though you're out of your "comfort zone." 


"The unknown is only scary, and can rock your comfort level, when you fear learning to know what you can about this unknown change or situation. Taking a breath, hugging yourself in your mind's eye, and making a plan will dissolve that uncomfortability and return you to comfort when you're willing to look at what you don't know you truly DO know!"  —  Susan Dascenzi
