Staying In Your Comfort Zone Is Helping You Fail


We’ve all got our comfort zones. And to be honest, they are pretty important. It’s where we are able to do the things we love without being worried about what other people will say. It shelters us from the rest of the world. It’s a reprieve from so much stress coming at us from all the other directions.

However, if you want to succeed & excel, then you’re going to have to step out of your comfort zone at times. Here are 3 ways your comfort zone is helping you fail:

1. It’s not letting you grow

When you remain your comfort zone for too long, you’re not growing. You’re stuck in a status quo. You’re trapped in limbo because you’re not out exploring new things, or learning about new stuff.

Your talents will be wasted because you’re not progressing. You’re not able to explore your potential if you are not pushing or at least exploring your limits.

If you want to grow as a person, and you want to go conquer your life’s goals, then you have to step outside your comfort zone. You’re going to have to step up & out to face your challenges.

2. It’s not letting you take risks

Part of the journey to achievement in life is taking risks. Whether it be small risks or huge life-changing risks, you’re going to have to take some whether you like it or not.

If you can’t take the risk of stepping out of your comfort zone for even a single second, then you’re not going to find success in the areas that challenge you most.

 You’ll be trapped in a cycle, doing the same thing over and over. If you want to see or do something different, then you’re going to have to do something different. Start by learning how to take risks and accept the outcomes.

3. It’s not letting you experience the world in real time

When you’re in your comfort zone, you’re stuck in a time loop. You’re using the same techniques and the same methods from when you started hiding out in your comfort zone.

You become too afraid to experiment and try out new technologies which can help you grow. You start (and keep) living life extra cautiously, always peeking in from the outside, never jumping into the center of things. When you live like this, you’ll be less and less likely to embrace change, take chances, and find success in the least likely of places, missing out on great rewards.

Living life to the fullest is about knowing when to hang out in the comfort zone and when to step out of it into the whirlwind of life. Sometimes, life forces you out and it be even more shocking. Try to think about 1-3 areas of our life where you could infuse more risk. They don’t have to be big risks, but a risk none the less. Maybe it’s talking to that cute guy or girl at the dog park. Maybe it’s trying a new yoga pose or hiking trail. Maybe it’s starting to look for a new job that excites you.

Whatever it is, this week I want you to embrace 1 new risk and get out of your comfort zone. Watch the magic unfold, when you push past the nerves and the fear and let faith and excitement lead.
