Take it from someone who was once obsessed with the comfort zone, it’s all a lie. We think that nothing can go wrong in that place. It’s safe and clean. But it’s all fake.
Nobody has control over what life will bring you. So you can spend as much time as you want in that bubble, but I promise you, it won’t save you forever.
Beyond that, nothing grows there. It’s a trap to get stuck in a routine you think you like because you don’t know any better.
It’s time to move outside of the zone and here is why…
The minute I left the comfort zone, I was afraid. But discomfort worked to my advantage. It pushed me to accomplish my goals to feel satisfied again. The more I pushed myself, the more I accomplished, and the more confident I became. Being uncomfortable wasn’t so scary anymore. It became a part of the process and I learned I will be okay.
This inevitably made me grow as a person. There is no way around it. Someone who tries new things will always grow. You learn you are good at something you’ve never expected to do. You find you have more inner strength than you thought. Orrr maybe you realize something isn’t a good fit and you decide you don’t want to go in that direction. Regardless, you still tried and found something out about yourself. No loss there.
But most importantly, life becomes exciting. You try new things. You experience something you would have never done had you stayed in that bubble. You meet new people that can open your eyes to even more new things.
You have one life to live. Take the step outside of the bubble and do something exciting. I promise it will be worth it in the long run.
