We love our comfort zones. Otherwise the term wouldn’t have the word “comfort” in it. Whether it’s lounging on the couch with the laptop or phone browsing videos, or taking a safe and steady career path doing things we’re OK at, comfort zones are the path of least resistance. We aren’t at risk, we aren’t challenged, we aren’t in danger of disastrous outcomes. But we aren’t growing, learning and improving as much either. And that’s not a good thing for those seeking personal growth and development. If you’re fine with your routine, that’s okay. No problem. But if you aren’t satisfied with business as usual, if you want to become better and get more out of life? Then you’re going have to go out of your comfort zones. Becoming physically fit, excelling in your career, getting straight As at school, all these require challenges and risks. But the rewards will be worth it.
