There are two specific things I have noticed throughout the years that hinder change. That is fear and leaving the comfort zone. If you have ever seen a child with a favorite blanket or stuffed animal, then you have witnessed how comfort zones begin. This is not a bad thing. It is important to teach children and adults to self-comfort. The problem exists when these comfort zones start enabling the person from making changes. Learn to face your fears, conquer your doubts and step out of your comfort zones. Try new things, new thinking, new point of view. Leave the old way behind and adopt a new way of thinking, living and existing!
