“The further you get away from yourself, the more challenging it is. Not to be in your comfort zone is great fun.” Benedict Cumberbatch

The unconscious mind creates comfort zones from what it knows, what it’s familiar with and what it considers is in our best interests, it will then guide our conscious mind accordingly.  This is what compels some people to save and others to spend, some to eat healthily and others not to.  The comfort zone is akin to what is referred to as mindset, it is where your thoughts control your actions.

A boulder blocking your path would require you to come out of your comfort zone which can be unnerving, everything is unfamiliar, the unconscious mind does not like this and will try to get you back to what it knows.  In these instances we must persevere, continue on the unknown path, the further you go, the more your mind will accept and the easier the journey will become.

Next week I’ll be looking at what happens when your unconscious mind becomes misguided and the affects this can have.
