The place between your comfort zone and your dream is where life takes place.
Move out of your comfort zone. You can only grow if you are willing to feel awkward and uncomfortable when you try something new.
Are you really happy or just really comfortable?
There is a difference. It seems very little to the comfortable person, but every happy person knows how huge the gap between happiness and just being comfortable actually is.
Staying in a cozy home every day, avoiding risks and therefore chances might seem like happiness to many, especially in our high-tech world.
But truth be told: You will only feel alive when you go out there and explore. Take risks, take chances, meet new people, embrace random encounters, be open towards new cultures, live with an open mind. It takes courage and strenght but it pays off and can be done step by step.
You would not want to waste your life in your comfort zone. Comfort zone is good, but who wants good, if he can have thrillingly exciting, adrenaline pumping happy?
Go out there!
PS: Nothing against a comfy, cozy home, in fact, you should make your home the perfect hang-out place. Just don’t rest on your laurels once youre done pay attention that your home does not become you life.
Everything you want is on the other side of fear.
The more you move out of your comfort zone, the more rewarding your efforts will be. Leave your fear behind, give yourself a little push every now and then and experience true freedom – realising that fear is just your brain telling you to be careful!
The secret to life is being comfortable with being uncomfortable and doing the things you know you should be doing even when you don’t feel like it.
Always do what you are afraid to do.
Ralph Waldo Emerson
Don’t get me wrong. You should not do bad or stupid stuff.
Sometimes you are afraid for a goddamn reason and you should always be rational about doing scaring stuff.
But in many cases you are afraid although you exactly know that what you are about to do is the right thing.
In this cases: Have courage, pull through! You can do it!
A risk a day keeps the shrink away
It is important to step out of your comfort zone constantly. Risk something every single day. Do something you fear or feel uncomfortable doing every day. Do this consciously and grow through it.
