The Comfort Zone?

“Pop” psychologists have been using the term the comfort zone for years. Their premise is that many people don’t move ahead in life with their dreams, because they are afraid to leave what they are use to, what they are familiar with, what has been called… the comfort zone.  But is the zone that they are trying to avoid leaving, really that comfortable? Is it even comfortable at all? In my behavioral therapy practice in Atlanta Ga, where I utilize hypnotherapy, I find that people are quite miserable in this so called comfort zone. They resist the behavioral changes that could literally transform their lives because they’re afraid of the unknown. One of the strongest drives that man has is to keep things familiar. Why not rename the comfort zone? Why not call it what it truly is – the familiar zone?

Why are some folks afraid of meeting new people? It’s because new people are unfamiliar to them. Why do some continue in an abusive relationship? Why do some stay in an unhappy personal situation? Why do some hang on to a dead end job? Because they fear change. Many would rather deal with the familiar, even though it is unpleasant, rather than with the unfamiliar.

Why don’t individuals leave their old familiar zone? Fear! It is because of fear. Fear of the unknown. They are allowing fear to hold them back; this lets them keep things familiar – and in their mind, they must keep things familiar!

Many people didn’t realize it, but when they tried in the past to make changes in their lives, they attempted to do so with the willpower and discipline of their conscious mind. But… their efforts were doomed to fail from the start, because one cannot make lasting behavioral change in the conscious or thinking mind – only in the subconscious mind. When things didn’t work out the way that they had planned, they became discouraged. They then reverted to their old familiar behavior! Familiar… but not comfortable.

Through hypnosis, one is able to access the alpha and theta states of the subconscious mind; therefore one is able to bring about true behavioral change. And without behavioral change… things will stay pretty much the same as they have been in the past.

Hypnosis is the bridge to the subconscious mind.  If you want to change your life – you’ve got to be willing to make changes and move out of your familiar zone. You cannot move ahead and stay where you are at the same time! The choice is yours.
