Out of Your Comfort Zone: Breaking Boundaries for a Life Beyond Limits

Dr. Emma Mardlin


When was the last time you did something that scared you? The last time you really pushed your boundaries, took a risk, and felt you not only bulldozed right through your fear but, in fact, used it to propel you forward?


If you’ve ever successfully confronted and overcome anything, even just for a short while, you’ll undoubtedly relate to the profound and overwhelming sense of self-satisfaction that comes with it. This experience provides you with a true sense of freedom, allowing you to breathe effortlessly and fully absorb life, knowing the only thing that can ever really hold you back is you.


Offering a step-by-step guide to incrementally breaking out of your comfort zone and confronting and transforming fear, Emma Mardlin, Ph.D., equips us with effective working tools to conquer our deepest fears in any context, be they small or big, and harness them to push us further toward our ultimate goals, purpose, and full potential. She provides the innovative Zone Test to measure your comfort zone before and after working through the book, tools such as the intuition indicator and RACE technique, and the thought-provoking “life discovery model” designed to support you in your new adventures once you’ve conquered your fears and let go of limitations.


Stepping Outside of Your Comfort Zone

De : T. Whitmore


Getting stuck in a rut is common. Stepping out of the box means leaving your rut behind and moving outside of your comfort zone. However, making the decision to get yourself out of that rut and finding a way to change your routines can be a challenge. It starts with one small step. Then, you need to be consistent and work toward the bigger changes.


This book can help you with ideas and encouragement to get the process moving. It helps you recognize what can already be good things in your life and what needs to change. It also gives a few examples of well-known people who stepped outside of the box and found success.


The Mountain Is You: Transforming Self-Sabotage Into Self-Mastery  Brianna Wiest


This is a book about self-sabotage. Why we do it, when we do it, and how to stop doing it—for good. Coexisting but conflicting needs create self-sabotaging behaviours this is why we resist efforts to change, often until they feel completely futile. But by extracting crucial insight from our most damaging habits, building emotional intelligence by better understanding our brains and bodies, releasing past experiences at a cellular level, and learning to act as our highest potential future selves, we can step out of our own way and into our potential.


For centuries, the mountain has been used as a metaphor for the big challenges we face, especially ones that seem impossible to overcome. To scale our mountains, we actually have to do the deep internal work of excavating trauma, building resilience, and adjusting how we show up for the climb.In the end, it is not the mountain we master, but ourselves.
