Comfort zone is one of the hardest places to leave behind.
It is safe, and it is a comfort but what most people don’t realize is that it is also mediocre, if you ask the dreamers. When you are happy and satisfied where you are, no one can take it against you. It is your choice, after all.
However, if you are one of those who want to break the spell and get out of your comfort zone, because you know it is time, here’s how you can get it done:
Be grateful for everything
We learn from success, and we learn from failure. We get the big things that come from small things. Whatever life throws at you, appreciate them and take nothing for granted. Your problem will teach you great lessons, and your success will teach you humility. Having nothing will push you to work harder and having something will drive you to greater heights.
Face your fears, literally
Do whatever it is that scares you the most. Is it meeting people? Then go out and meet people and make new friends. Is it traveling alone? By all means, travel alone and see how liberating it is. Do you want to put up your own business but afraid you might fail? Do it anyway. You will never know the outcome until you try. Take comfort in knowing that even when things don’t go your way, there are lessons to be had and such lessons would pave the way to success at the right time so long as you don’t give up.
Dare yourself to try something new
Whether it is a new hobby or a sport you have always wanted to try but not confident enough to, this is the perfect time to do it. The more you explore, the more you will gain confidence in doing what you want and getting out of your comfort zone will be easier.
Ask questions, even the uncomfortable ones. Someone has to ask them anyway, so it might as well be you. Voicing them out will give you answers that could resolve issues quickly.
Don’t let negativity drag you down
Every day is not always a ray of sunshine, and try as you might, you may feel a little helpless at times but don’t let this get in your way. Keep fighting and welcome the uncomfortable feelings because it is the only way you will get out of your comfort zone victorious.
Don’t be afraid to face something new because in them you will find growth, wisdom, and experience.
