Would you say you ever push yourself out of your comfort zone?
For a lot of us our comfort zone if our safe place and we struggle to step out of it. Maybe you don’t like to give up control, maybe you are fearful of what might happen if you do, maybe you’re just too comfortable and cant be bothered to explore beyond what you know.
Whatever your reason I urge you to move away from your comfort zone and experience more than what you currently know.
Nothings new ever happens from the comfort zone. You wont learn anything new, you wont grow or even discover new elements of yourself and what you want from life. Ultimately you wont live life to its full potential if you stay still, all wrapped up in a blanket in the confines of your safe place.
Sure the area around our comfort zone might be somewhat unsafe but that is where life lives.
I’m not saying push yourself into extreme, adrenaline enhancing, death defying situations, each persons comfort zone/limits are individual to them, I’m just saying don’t let life pass you by because you are too comfortable with where you are.
If you are in the wrong relationship, even if its not necessarily an unhappy one its just comfortable, then take the plunge and get out and open yourself up to the possibility of finding someone who could make you happier than you’ve ever been.
If you are in a job that doesn’t inspire you, that maybe is boring but at least it pays the bills and doesn’t come with much risk… stop wasting time settling for boredom and apply for something new. Or set up that business you’ve always wanted. If it fails it fails, you learn from it and you grow. Just don’t end up at retirement age and wish you’d taken the plunge all those years ago.
If you feel like your weeks are filled with doing the same things with the same people and although you might care for these people you are a little disinterested or spiritless at the idea of this being your routine for the foreseeable. Then why not mix things up? Take up a new hobby, try a class in something you’ve never done before, spend your weekends exploring places you’ve never been before…. just get out there and see what’s on offer!
Life is WAYYY too short to spend it feeling comfortable. Instead:
Be extatically happy!
Feel ALL the emotions possible and get as much from life as you can. After all you only get this one as you so don’t waste it or let it pass you by.
