Escape Your Comfort Zone!

Copyright © 10/2023 ❘ The Enterneers®

Step out of your comfort zone and embrace change and further development. If you aim to empower and motivate your organisation and its workforce to make significant changes, you yourself must feel empowered and motivated. The better you understand your personal habits and behavioural patterns as well as the strategies to successfully overcome your own hurdles on the way to change, the more successful you can be as a leader in facilitating change among others. Venturing beyond the comfort zone involves taking small but consistent steps. Anyone can cultivate this skill and many have already succeeded in doing so. In the end, some tend to return to their comfort zone because permanent change can be exhausting.

The way to an above-average increase in success is through significant changes. Those who set high success goals for their personal development should always expect to make a considerable investment in personal transformation. This also applies to personal success in the effective application of Enterneering®. Those who have not succeeded in implementing effective Enterneering® within themselves and their personal environment with their previous habitats and behavioural patterns will not succeed without considerable changes, even with the very best of intentions. Managing such changes means that you must conquer yourself and your own comfort zone. It’s important to note that remaining in a familiar environment does not necessarily equate to being inevitably unsuccessful or unhappy, since success is always a matter of individual definition. If one follows the 'comfort zone model', one must move out of one's familiar environment and leave entrenched structures in order to develop further. How do people with a high level of responsibility for the further development and change of others or organisations want to be successful if they do not succeed in taking their own step out of their comfort zone?



What does 'comfort zone' actually mean? How can this state be identified and under what conditions does it arise? It can be assumed that every person has his or her comfort zone and usually strives to occupy and maintain it. The comfort zone is marked by traditions, familiar patterns, ingrained routines, and situations with little uncertainty. The comfort zone is thus the diametrical opposite of change. Through its familiarity and compatibility with personal inclinations, it provides people with a sense of security and sovereignty. It is probably even a component of the human survival strategy.
