We all have our comfort zones, and the truth is, it’s important to us. But you can’t stay shackled to your comfort zone forever. Here’s why you need to step out of your comfort zone if you want to achieve a fulfilled life.
#1. Your Comfort Zone Is Where Your Dreams Go To Die
You have dreams, and you want to achieve your dreams within your lifetime, right? By achieving your dream, you’ll finally get to live the life you’ve always wanted, and you’ll find happiness. But you can’t do all that if you’re stuck in your comfort zone.
When you’re not willing to step out of your comfort zone, your skills and your knowledge will stagnate. You’re not going to improve in any way.
The thing is, your dreams will require you to do things you’ve probably never done before. You’ve got to be ready for that, and you’ve got to prepare yourself mentally and physically.
If you don’t want to bury your dreams and your future happiness, then you better figure out how you can venture outside your comfort zone! Die with memories, not dreams.
“Don’t die with your music still in you”. [Dr Wayne Dyer]
#2. Your Comfort Zone Is Trapping You Inside
Why would you allow yourself to get trapped in your comfort zone? Is it because you’re afraid of failing? Or maybe even success?
Whatever the reason, the fact of the matter is that you can’t let yourself be stuck in your comfort zone. Unless, of course, you want to live a mediocre and unhappy life.
#3. Your Comfort Zone Is Your Greatest Obstacle To Happiness
You may think you’re happy where you are right now. But if you’re still yearning for your dreams, then you need to do something about it. For as long as you’ve got that void in your life, then you can’t ever be truly happy.
When you’re at peace with yourself, you can look at yourself in the mirror and say “I’m finally happy” with conviction.
If you can do this, then that’s really good for you! But if you can’t, then you really must take action and reach for your dreams. You’ve got to be committed to it.
At times, you’ll feel overwhelmed by the many obstacles that will stand in your way. Just don’t give up and always look towards the prize – your dreams and your happiness. Get comfortable with being uncomfortable and start living the life you choose.
