Getting out of your comfort zone is a prerequisite to graduate the school of success. There are people who refuse to get out of their comfort zone due to fear of failure and ridicule. Fear is paralyzing to success. Your comfort zone is your danger zone because it stops you from progress. Your comfort zone will conform you to a life of insignificance. Life is not meant to conform but to transform.
There is an ole’ saying that goes if you do what’s easy, life will be hard. If you do what’s hard, life will be easy. Getting out of your comfort zone is not easy. It is perhaps the reason why people stay there. We have to aspire to reach higher and doing so requires hard work. Any major accomplishment demands a change of mind. The reason why, is because the same mind that created your comfort zone must be replaced with a new mindset. If we continue to stay in our comfort zone, our life journey will reflect a road less traveled.
One way to get out of your comfort zone is to join a toastmasters club. Toastmasters specializes in helping people to get out of their comfort zone through public speaking. The organization has helped millions of people become leaders in their respective fields. Although most people would rather die than give a talk, it is still a great way to get out of your comfort zone.
Another way to get out of your comfort zone is to just say hello to people! This too is a challenge because people typically don’t like to speak or even say thank you. As a New Yorker, I can identify. There were many times I should have said hello and thank you to someone but I refused. I believe it had something to do with me remaining in my comfort zone.
In conclusion, your comfort zone is your danger zone because it destroys your progress in life. The longer you stay in your comfort zone, the longer you prohibit yourself from taking the actions that are necessary for success.
