Surviving Outside Your Comfort Zone

A New Job? Encountering Challenges???

‘Surviving Outside Your Comfort Zone’ This is a reality every individual has to go through, to experience living. Ironically in this phase, you don’t consider yourself living but existing. Deep down you are trying to adapt to the new environ or system that just seems to consistently put you out of place. You constantly ask yourself if you could ever get better or ever be good enough. You strive to make sure you are not in a shameful situation or embarrass those who consider you fit for this new system you have consciously signed up for.

Getting a job is a great blessing especially when it happens to be a place where you know growth and learning is a guarantee and of course a big hype to your resumé. On the job, may be a whole different story especially when you lack prior knowledge of the Job Description. Many times you make the silliest mistakes that you probably wouldn’t make if assigned the task out of the job context. You even ask yourself the validity of your certifications especially when grasping what you are being trained isn’t exactly easy. You sometimes even struggle to get a grip of yourself and seem to be loosing yourself in the process, trying to adjust to the very early hours of preparation and going on transit to your workplace. It is all a new phase and it’s actually not abnormal to feel this way.

Some people are fortunate to fit in quite quickly probably as a result of the job and personality suiting or a natural disposition of adaptability. Regardless, of the situation, adapting to a new job and encountering challenges isn’t an abnormally, a sign of failure or lack of intellectual ability. It may simply be that you are out of your comfort zone and that poses a whole new experience for you. You may take a while to fully grasp the processes but if you put your mind to it with all determination the learning process would become a great one.

Asides having to deal with the psychological aspect of grasping the new processes the ‘people’ factor may set in. Your colleagues may not exactly be receptive or may give very cold attitude, that shouldn’t make you feel down rather consistently be who you are and never ever consider the possibility of you being incapable to perform the tasks, put up your ‘I can do it’ attitude with all confidence.
Don’t get swayed by the poor receptiveness of others.
Be accommodating and interact a lot
Observe the system
Be open to learning and learn on your own
Consciously take steps to improve your knowledge on all subject matters related to your job
Be a brand of yourself, be reputable
Set out to impact
Thrive for Excellence

Then, whisper to yourself ‘I can do this’. You sure will be able to😊
