8/1 (Tue.) Escape your comfort zone (Host: Annie)

文章 Annie Zhang »


Hi all,

It's been a while since the last time I hosted. :shock: It's a pleasure to come back and discuss the topic "Escape Your Comfort Zone."

Throughout life, stepping out of the comfort zone is not always necessary. When to challenge yourself and when to stay in your comfort zone often depend on your personal goals, values, and circumstances. So, how is your situation now? Welcome to the meeting, and let's discuss! :D

Section one:

1. What is your definition of a comfort zone and how do you know when you're in it?
2. What are the things you may be afraid of doing, but that are actually good for you? For instance, public speaking or networking with people, etc. – they're outside our comfort zone.
3. Do you have anyone in mind who represents stepping out of their comfort zone? This could be anyone, such as your friends, teachers, or celebrities. And why?
4. What are some strategies you've used to escape your own comfort zone and how did they work?
5. How do you know when it's appropriate or necessary to push yourself out of your comfort zone?
6. Can you share a personal experience where stepping out of your comfort zone led to personal growth or a positive outcome?

Section two:
1. What are some common fears or obstacles that prevent people from leaving their comfort zones? How can these be overcome?
2. How do you feel yourself as fixed mindset or growth mindset?
3. Share some strategies or techniques that can help individuals gradually expand their comfort zones without feeling overwhelmed.
4. Share a story of someone you know who embraced discomfort and achieved remarkable personal growth. What lessons can be learned from their experience?
5. what are the new challenges or experiences that you would like to try?
