To take your life, your business, your Subliminal360 Review health or any other part of your life to the next level requires of you to step outside of what feels comfortable and what you are accustomed to. It's simple. If you keep doing what you've always done then your results will be what you've always gotten. With comfort zones we are, quite literally, imprisoned by what we believe we are or aren't and what we believe we can or can't do.

When baby elephants are trained their back leg gets tied with a rope to a wooden peg. This confines the elephant to an area that is determined by the length of the rope. At first the baby elephant will try and free himself, but the rope proofs to be too strong for him and after a while he will give up trying. Even when the elephant grows up to a massive male that can weigh as much as 6 tones, he will remain confined to the area determined by the length of rope. Because he is 'used' to it and he believes that he cannot go outside that constraints of his comfort zone, he will remain imprisoned by something that can not logically tie him down anymore. He will stay in his comfort zone even if it was defined when he was only a little baby and even if he can easily break free from it now.

Human beings are very much the same, although it is a lot less obvious. We all have 'limitations' that we've been conditioned to believe and now that we are capable of breaking free from them, we don't even attempt it. In fact, the possibility does not even cross our minds. When you believe something you create a sort of mental 'blindness' to other possibilities because your experiences are filtered through your beliefs. The result is that you tend to stay with what you are comfortable with which is what you are certain about.
