Every time I have made a decision to leave or widen my comfort zone“ I have grown in many ways.. The fullness of life goes way beyond the boundary of my “comfort zone “Risks and challenges have pushed me to develop new knowledge and resources. My world has invariably been enriched by risks and new experiences. Obviously there have been some mistakes made in these choices, but the pluses far surpass the moments and decisions that did not go well.
I do not have a magic wand, but I would suggest we not always settle for the mediocre just to avoid the anxious feelings of stepping out of the comfort zone; it’s too big a price to pay. Your challenges and risk experiences are opportunities to grow in many ways. It does not have to be a mammoth challenge but leaving your comfort zone ultimately helps you to deal with change. The unknown may be scary but so often when we take a risk we grow and are transformed for the better. If the big leap is too frightening try to make small changes that take you to a new level of peace and joy.It is not merely a slogan that says”You only go around once.” On the other side of that place you may not wish to go may be something you have always wished for “someday.”
