Why you should be scared of your Comfort Zone.

comfortzoneYour comfort zone is where your dreams go to die. Stepping beyond the confines of comfort might seem daunting, but it's essential for personal growth and success. Here’s why you should be scared to stay in your comfort bubble.

1. Say Goodbye to Growth 

Sticking to what's comfortable limits your potential for growth. Growth occurs when you challenge yourself, take risks, and explore the unknown. It’s the discomfort of not knowing that often leads to the most profound personal development. 

2. No Risk No Reward

Great accomplishments rarely emerge from playing it safe. The fear of failure or rejection might prevent you from taking chances or from trying something new but some of life's most rewarding experiences and achievements stem from taking risks and embracing uncertainty. By venturing beyond your comfort zone, you discover skills and strengths you never knew existed. 

3. Regret

Years down the line, regret often lingers for the things we didn’t do rather than the ones we did. Knowing you didn't achieve what you could have is worse than trying and failing. Staying within your comfort zone might provide temporary relief, but in the long run you will have wasted your most precious comodity, time. 

Overcoming the Fear

Now, stepping out of your comfort zone is hard. It involves facing fears, taking risks, and embracing discomfort. But the catch is that growth and success often reside on the other side of fear.

Whether it's asking that girl for their number, trying a new exercise at the gym or joining that club and being a total beginner, you will thank yourself for doing it. 

The human mind is naturally pesimistic. What if I don't succeed? What if I get rejected? 

But what you should be asking yourself is, what if I do achieve my goal? What if I do succeed? 

Your motivation for success should outweigh your need to avoid failure. But when you do fail, and you will. Keep going, and push through because eventually it will work. Someone will give you their number if you keep asking different people. You will get good form of that new exercise at the gym. You will get better. 

Don't let the inevitibility of failing discourage your progression.

Let fear be the catalyst that propels you toward your goals rather than a shackle that confines you to the dream of achieving them.
