Recover From Stuttering – Push Yourself Out of Your Comfort Zone

Newsletter 75: May 2016

Your comfort zone is a behavioural space where your activities and behaviours fit a routine and pattern that minimises stress and risk. It provides a state of mental security. You benefit in obvious ways: regular happiness, low anxiety and reduced stress.

It’s easy, as a person with a stutter, to sit back and allow others to speak for you, avoid situations in which you think you may have trouble speaking ... "I can put that phone call off until tomorrow, I don’t really feel like making it now, I don’t feel like I will have any fluency control. I want to watch this program I’ve been looking forward to."

Does this sound like you? Do you prefer to just stay in your comfort zone? It’s great to be relaxed and not have to worry about the busy world and all its expectations. We all deserve timeout. However, it’s not good for us psychologically to avoid and continue to avoid all that we perceive to be confronting situations.

In the comfort of your own home you can participate in the Ezy-Speech Stuttering Therapy Program. After you learn this effective fluency technique and heed the cognitive recommendations, the resulting confidence that you experience will encourage you to venture outside of your usual comfort zone. Ride the wave of confidence that this produces and allow yourself the freedom of:
  • meeting new people
  • making those crucial points you have always thought you should
  • making those phone calls and looking forward to what the conversations might bring
  • asking all the questions with a childlike curiosity
Consider this quote by Pandora Poikilos: "We are so accustomed to the comforts of "I cannot", "I do not want to" and "it is too difficult" that we forget to realize when we stop doing things for ourselves and expect others to dance around us, we are not achieving greatness. We have made ourselves weak."

On a recent radio program, a young psychologist speaking about avoidance and comfort zones said that people who reside in their comfort zones tend to be the unhappiest of all.

stuttering therapyWe all know of the great human potential to strive and succeed ... the first step comes from YOU.

Manoj Arora said, "Coming out of your comfort zone is tough in the beginning, chaotic in the middle, and awesome in the end...because in the end, it shows you a whole new world!!
Make an attempt."

Maintain the feeling of fluency with some hard work, then step out and enjoy!
