Personal Growth

It’s important in life to have people in your inner circle that care about you. Yet, it’s key to have people that will not just tell you what you want to hear but what you need to hear as well.

In order to grow, a person has to come out of their comfort zone and be open to constructive criticism. However, it won’t take place if you just surround yourself with people that just tell you what you want to hear always.

As a result, you got to be around some individuals that know more than you and got no issue in calling you out when needed on a consistent basis.

What is something in your personal or professional life that you achieved by coming out of your comfort zone?

  1. This is absolutely true! I love my mom with all of my heart, but she just goes with whatever she thinks I want to hear. I have to call the people that will be honest with me no matter what.

    1. Really?… It’s usually friends over parents that do that, why some people surround themselves on purpose with friends that will just tell them what they wan to hear always. Also, my mom is one of those people… why she rarely talk to me about important issues, because I’ll let her know in a nice way if I feel she could of handle a situation better than how she did…

  2. Keep it up!

    This post touches on the axiomatic truth that nothing was ever achieved by staying in your comfort zone, which is seldom a truth that is ever accepted these days.
    Everyone has something to teach us about our journey.
    If you operate under the assumption that ‘everyone is you pushed out,’ then even people who continually tell you what you want to hear can teach you something about yourself. The key to figuring out what is for you to learn is to pay attention to what people say, and see how it clicks with that subtle inner voice that often gets washed away with the din of waking day.

    Sometimes people who tell you what you want to hear do not really care about what you have to say at all, and are only validating you so that you can validate them.

    I learned that the hard way.

    While stepping out of your comfort zone IS important perhaps listening to that inner voice is the top priority above all else.
    It will not ever steer you wrong, and is the only validation that you will ever truly need.

    1. Thanks for the feedback…. Yeah, I’ve learn some people just want to be sold some hope and not willing to get out of their comfort zone…. but nothing changes if nothing changes…
