Be gentle on your loved ones who lack the strength to leave toxic situations. What looks easy from the outside, may be a war they fight internally. What feels like danger to you, could be a comfort zone for their insecurities. What you think requires action, may require PATIENCE.
You have to be fearless about pursuing your dreams. You have to be willing to leave your comfort zone to grow not only as a human being but to push your own boundaries. I encourage anyone chasing dreams to be fearless; go into emotional areas that aren’t always comfortable or comprehensible. Do something out of your comfort zone today. Sometimes the things that scare us help us grow.
Twenty years from now you will be more disappointed by the things you didn’t do than by the ones you did do. So throw off the bowlines. Sail away from the safe harbor. Catch the trade winds in your sails. Explore. Dream. Discover. (Not my words.)
Be disciplined about what you respond and react to. Most people are inconsistent, that’s their comfort zone. Not everyone or everything deserves your time, energy and attention. Stay in your light. Vibe with your tribe.
You are being presented with a choice: evolve or remain the same. If you choose to remain unchanged, you will be presented with the same challenges, the same routine, the same storms, the same situations, until you learn from them, until you love yourself enough to say “no more”, until you choose change.
If you choose to evolve, you will connect with the strength within you, you will explore what lies outside the comfort zone, you will awaken, you will become, you will be what you want. You have everything you need. Choose to evolve.

Once in a while i talk about the flip sides of comfort zone. The darkest side of being stuck in your COMFORT ZONE is; “You could lose your individuality”. When you live your entire life inside your comfort zone, you easily become lost in the crowd without an inner guiding light. You become just another sheep walking with the herd. When you break away from the masses, It might feel uncomfortable but that is the space where you can find fulfillment through growth and connection. Unless you retain your individuality, you won’t make a difference in the world. Capitalize on your potential or learn new things. Once you release yourself from the prison of comfortability, you’ll start to see new and better opportunities and you’ll be able to take advantage of them. Other people will notice how you move forward through life and they will look up to you for guidance and inspiration. Instead of being just another follower, you empower yourself to carve your own path and Lead others toward their greatness as well.
So many people trap themselves within the confines of their comfort zones, for some it’s merely a habit, others never leave because they let their irrational fears dictate their lives, these people condemn themselves to a reality full of frustration and regret. Don’t let that be you although it seems scary to venture out of your comfort zone. You need to take the first steps. If you practice pushing the boundaries of your comfort zone, you’ll become comfortable with the unfamiliar. Then you can jump into drastically different territory of surprises & happiness. It’s the opportunity to become a better version of yourself & create an IDENTITY which can’t be replicated.
Most people have a misconception that “Routine is making me bored, repetitive & lazy”. When you think of comfort you might imagine a cozy warm space with blankets and a hot drink, its pleasant for sure. But Comfort is double-edged sword that typically results in the consequences of contentment boredom and laziness. Routines can help give structure to your life and your nightly netflix chill ritual might be satisfying but your habits could also be holding you back from opening up in discovering your hidden talents.
When you trap yourself in your comfort zone for too long, you’ll transform into a zombie, a mere cog in the machine without meaning or fulfillment in life. When you lose your drive to learn to do and to achieve, you lose the ability to create meaning in your life and while it’s nice to feel comfortable, it often leads to wasted potential.
This post continues with yesterday’s topic on “How comfort zone is killing us from within!!”. Your ability to learn is limited. Once the human brain knows how to do something, It becomes an automated task. And when this happens, the areas in your brain responsible for learning essentially cease working. This means familiarity directly translates to stagnation and unfamiliarity equals learning when you prioritize knowledge and growth. You’ll find that your life is full of abilities & capabilities. You don’t know you have all you need to unlock your skills & step out of comfortability.
Imagine this as an example, every year you go on vacation. You go to the same place at the same time of year. You always stay in the same hotel where you know you have been, the same area, the restaurants and even same people, this familiar vacation spot is in your comfort zone. And even though it’s a nice time, you don’t learn anything new when you visit. Now again imagine taking a vacation to a new city or even an entirely new country. You’ll find yourself inspired to learn new words in a new language, understand different customs and check out a map while you’re there. You’ll have fresh and unexpected experiences that challenge you on this vacation.
Newness and unfamiliarity breed knowledge about yourself and the world around you. When you leave your comfort zone, boundaries of what you can and want to experience expand past what you know with a larger perspective. You’ll gain a newfound sense of motivation to do to experience and understand new things. Escaping comfort zone is the most exciting thing you can gift yourself. Wish almighty bless us all with healing, health, happiness, love, joy, peace & prosperity. Happy New Year.🤗 Tap OUT..😘
Today i am gonna talk about “How COMFORT ZONE is killing you from within!!” Do you feel satisfied with your accomplishments in life? Are you where you want to be? A surprising amount of people will answer NO to these questions. You might be one of those people who haven’t made satisfactory progress in life, often failed to reach goals because they’re stuck inside their comfort zones. It’s much easier to keep doing the same things & stay within the confines of familiarity. Breaking out of your comfort zone needs choosing and uncertainty. However, if you want to achieve your goals and make lasting progress in life, you need to choose growth instead of comfort in some situations. Your comfort zone is actually holding you back.
You won’t discover your true self in comfort zone. We often choose to remain within our comfort zones because it’s safe and easy when things are familiar. The future is predictable. There’s no risk and no fear. This might sound like a great thing. Without fear, challenge and risk, you’re unlikely to understand yourself on a deep level. When you choose to take on a challenge, face your fears and overcome them, you’re choosing to engage in an act of learning experience where the subject matter is you and although these situations are often scary. You need to practice stepping out of your familiar space if you want to learn more about who you are. When you take risks, you discover more about what makes you tick, what your strengths are and what you need to work on as you take journey of self-discovery, you’ll find your true self, a version of you with deep wisdom and power that you didn’t even know was there. Once you step outside of your comfort zone you’ll begin to connect with your hidden self, opening doors along the way to personal growth, positive changes & a fuller understanding of deep love with self . Without discomfort you’ll never know this progress.
Confidence is always available beyond comfort zone. Yesterday i was talking little bit about confident people. This next paragraph does the same.
Confident people don’t resist learning new things. People with confidence are lifelong Learners, even when they are experts in their field. They have a learner’s mindset. They know that there is so much more in life to achieve and so many ways to grow. They aren’t entrenched in old ways of doing things or old beliefs about what is right or best. They look for ways to stretch themselves through new endeavors. They don’t get too comfortable. Confident people understand that getting too comfortable is the mortal enemy of achieving goals. That’s because they know that comfort leads to contentment and contentment leads to stagnation when they start feeling comfortable. They take it as a red flag and start pushing their boundaries so that they continue to grow.
No matter how clearly I try to convey, there is always a group of few who struggle to understand my stance on SUCCESS. I am not running behind some sort of success. It’s just that if I want something & I run behind it till I get it. I enjoy the ride of feeding my desires. So this “SUCCESS” is not my strength here. I am not trying to win something. Some hardships & failures are there, they will remain the same. My strength is “I can’t give up my desires & I love to cross my comfort zone for them”.
You are upto you. Make yourself. Make your money. Make your story. Make your destiny. Make your pumpkin pie (Halloween & Thanksgiving coming).😋😜 At the end it’s all the same if you are TRULY HAPPY.
