out of the comfort zone
The only constant thing in this world is change. The change is very striking and apparent, that even the changes that have transpired in the world (for the last ten years) has been one of the questions in the recently concluded Miss Universe competition.
But if change is permanent, why do people dread it? And if change is expected, why is it difficult for us to have a complete turn-around?
Leaving one’s comfort zone is truly never easy. Though comfort equates to security most of the time, it will never guarantee growth. Progress and prosperity will entail leaving that place where you feel close to home. And if you want success and ultimate breakthroughs, you definitely have to level up your game-plan, and leave your comfort zone.
Though it may sound exhilarating, it can also be nerve-racking. But as they say, if your dreams do not scare or frighten you, then you are not dreaming big enough. Your dreams should intimidate you, so you will strive for growth and betterment. Your dreams should terrify you, so that you will be pushed to your limits. And the hard times will drain you, leave you gasping for air, bewilder and make you lost your wits even. Sometimes you will even question why you chose to leave a life of comfort and security in the first place. But if all these tough and testing times will bring you to where you are supposed to be, then you will not only pass through it, but will even rise above the circumstance, highly flying with colors.
And sometimes all it takes is that desire for change. In your heart, you just have to brace yourself for that one big step. With all your might, prepare as you take on that one big leap. It may be a thousand miles before you even reach your final destination, but who cares? As long as you are eager to take on that single step starting today, even with your heart afraid, you will eventually get there.
The choice is yours. Will you be stuck in comfort and monotony, or embrace change not knowing what lies outside your comfort zone?
But how else will you even find out what else is on the other side of the world?
Just go out and explore. And in the process, keep the faith and enjoy the venture into the unknown!
