Quick, clear read. Thanks, Nicolas. However I would add one interim step. If someone just steps out of their comfort zone, stands in that foreign territory and breaks out in a panic attack or cold sweats or heart palpitations, the experience can actually launch a dysfunctional pattern for him/her. So, a better routine to consider as you step into the unknown that you once resisted is to have cultivated reliable calming skills that you use to interrupt depleting behaviors and quiet your nervous system. In that way, you can act more intentionally…and fearlessly. You may remember Carl Jung’s words: “What you resist persists.”
