Recently, I met a young woman who shared with me her dream. I’ll call her Francis. For years, Francis had wanted to start her own social enterprise where she could work with special needs children.
When I asked her what might be stopping her from pursuing this dream, she sheepishly replied, “Because I’ve become too comfortable with my life, and it takes too much energy to change.”
I’ve heard this very same sentiment come out of the mouths of many people I’ve worked with.
I call this the trap of becoming too comfortable.
You might be familiar with some of these scenarios of past clients:
For Jeff, Maria, Lisa and Francis, they each found themselves in the trap of becoming too comfortable.
When you become too comfortable, life becomes stagnant.
You know what happens to water when it becomes stagnant and doesn’t move? It starts to attract bugs, parasites, and bacteria. The water becomes a breeding ground for disease and danger.
The same thing can happen if your life becomes stagnant.
If you don’t invite a fresh flowing of new energy, you become susceptible to dis-ease and burnout.
For your coaching assignment for this week, let’s see if any part of your life might be feeling a little too comfortable:
If you answered yes to any of these, you may be experiencing some stagnancy in your life. You might have unwittingly found yourself in the trap of being too comfortable.
If you answered no to all of these, then you might have the right amount of flow and new energy circulating in your life.
The invitation is to check in and ask yourself these questions every so often. Stagnancy has a way of creeping in without you realizing it.
At the heart of this is this spiritual truth:
We are evolutionary beings living in an ever-evolving Universe.
Growing, evolving and expanding are the central impulse to all of Life itself.
How are you being called to grow today?
Abundant Blessings and Namaste.
