Most people aren’t where they want to be in life because of their comfort zone.
Your comfort zone is this little bubble, where life is bliss and easy. You’ve made yourself at home in this comfort zone, you’ve got a bed, bean bag, blankets, things that make it comfortable.
Obviously otherwise it would have been called the uncomfortable zone.
It’s easy to live a repetitive life, to carry on what you are doing. You stay doing what causes the least friction in your life. Staying in your comfort zone won’t necessarily make your life miserable but you just won’t achieve any progress, making your life dull.
If you aren’t willing to take risks you will never know how things are going to work out. We end up finding what our true self is by taking risks and doing something that may scare you. Every so often do something you wouldn’t normally do and if it doesn’t work out at least you can say you tried.
“Don’t follow well-lit paths, grab a machete and hack your own”. You will learn and experience more things if you move away from the comfort zone. Don’t become a sheep and follow what the rest of the flock is doing. Do something that makes you stand out.
When faced with difficulties or obstacles people tend to postpone their goals because they don’t face the challenge head on. The comfort zone can stop you achieving your dreams. Being brave enough to overcome these problems will be a step out of the comfort zone and onto further success.
Some people enjoy routines, they are warm and cosy like an old pair of slippers. But after a while of this same routine, the excitement of your life is gone, and you end up turning into some who is bored, lazy and content.
It may be satisfying having a routine but you are preventing from anything new in your life. You end up wasting time and turning down opportunities because you think you don’t need them.
The unknown may be terrifying for some of us to even think about but it is where dreams are made. You can stay in your comfort zone and wish for a better life.
Or go out and make it a better life.
