In order to keep moving on through life, we also count with a Competence Zone: a state where we perform at our very best. When we enter our Competence zone, we are convinced that we are capable of more; we do not settle for the “good”, we look for the “best” and usually we get it. We go beyond our own expectations and achieve above average results. It is a place of no rest, a place where we “stretch” our potential.
A sense of accomplishment is a vital element to our overall well-being and a big motivating factor. Our Competence Zone connects us with this sense of achievement and reinforces our self-concept. Every small achievement or progress toward our
goals is a testimonial to our Competence Zone.
A sense of continuous growth is also a component of our Competence Zone. Sometimes overcoming obstacles demands that we transform to keep up with the size of the challenge and that is what make us expand our resources, find new alternatives and finally…grow.
Keep your Competence Zone active, raise the bar every now and then. This will keep you awake and alive, because it goes hand in hand with two powerful motivators: engagement and enjoyment. Fulfillment in life comes from becoming what we are capable of becoming and achieving our highest potential.
