Moving Out of Comfort Zone to Get What You Want in Life!

Moving Out of Comfort Zone to Get What You Want in Life!

It is easy to stay in our comfort zone and do the same things, day in and day out.  Go to the same grocery store, gas station, restaurants, and route to work.  There is a feeling of familiarity knowing where things are and being able to quickly get in and out.

What does being in your comfort zone mean?

It is a natural state of where most people feel comfortable and want to be.  When we stay in our comfort zone we get complacent and bored.  It is easy to remain within our comfort boundaries than to face challenges, change, fear or adventure.  Getting out of our comfort helps us grow and deal better with change.

Outside of your comfort zone is where the magic happens. ~ Unknown

Let’s discuss the benefits of trying new things and having a little more adventure in life.

When we stay in our comfort zone we miss out on professional opportunities, new life experiences and personal growth.  By doing stuff a little different and taking chances, it changes our focus and we may become happy, motivated, challenged, confident and inspires a positive outlook at life.

Tips for moving away from comfort zone:

  1. Do one thing different each day.
  2. Drive a different route to and from work.
  3. Make a new food or drink recipe.
  4. Try a different restaurant.
  5. Order something you have never had before; such as a different type of coffee blend, a cocktail or a meal.
  6. Listen to a new radio station.
  7. Learn a new hobby or take a martial art class.
  8. Read a different type of book.  Something you wouldn’t usually read.
  9. Do something on your bucket list.
  10. Go on some type of adventure.
  11. Celebrate after you did something new and different, which was out of your comfort zone.

The biggest rewards in life are found outside your comfort zone. Live with it. Fear and risk are prerequisites if you want to enjoy a life of success and adventure. ~ Jack Canfield

Take away:

Comfort is easy.  How will you grow if you stay in the same place?  Take small daily steps doing something different either at work and/or at home life.  By staying within your comfort zone, you may miss out on professional opportunities, new life experiences and learning new things.  Take a risk, don’t think about it, and just do it.  Push your personal boundaries, break free and live in the moment.  Be adventurous, you will definitely be surprised at how much your confidence level has increased!

  1. A great read! Life needs challenges to help us keep our minds fresh and open to new ideas. The people that aren’t afraid to try something new are the most interesting to converse with.

  2. It’s so true. We get nothing if we keep ourselves closed in the room which is made by us. I always believe in breaking the walls. Great thoughts from your side, ma’am.
    Live well.

  3. Hi, Shubham – Yes, keeping ourselves closed in a room doesn’t get us to where we want to be in life. Staying in the room and not opening that door keeps us in the same place. Opening that door or breaking down those walls expands new opportunities. Thanks for sharing.
