Today’s solo episode is inspired by a book that I’ve been reading that has been super impactful for me. I wanted to dive into the topic that this book centers around so we can all understand why we tend to hit a ceiling of personal development and what we can do to make sure we keep growing even after we hit our goals.
02:02 Staying Comfortable
06:20 The Whys
The book talks about why, at a certain point in our lives, we come to a point where we stop developing and sort of become complacent where we’re at. Sometimes we hit goals and linger on that level because it’s comfortable, or we do things to self-sabotage. We do this because we feel a sense of guilt about an abundance of happiness and success.
Worrying and overthinking is one reason why we sometimes hit a ceiling and don’t push past it. We start to ask ourselves all sorts of questions and start looking at what could go wrong. Same with deflecting and being comfortable with where we are.
People tend to fall into three different zones of ability. The first is the zone of competence, which is being good at what we’re doing but others can do them just as well. The second is the zone of excellence, which is having areas we exceed in, but it’s also where we get tempted to stay and therefore not flourish. The third is the zone of genius, which most people don’t fall into, but it’s where we flex our special gifts and strengths.
If we want to get to the zone of genius, we should ask ourselves some questions. What do we most love to do? What work do I do that doesn’t seem like work? In my work, what produces the highest abundance and satisfaction? What is your unique ability? Finding the answers to these questions will help us thrive.
