3 Reasons Why You Need to Get Out of your Comfort Zone

There is such an old and very correct saying: «Fish is looking for where it is deeper, and man — where it is better ». And this is absolutely right and natural. Everyone strives to make their life as comfortable and enjoyable as possible. The living space is bigger, the car is faster, the bed is softer, the computer is more powerful. It would be a complete idiocy to refuse these benefits of civilization.

It would seem, well, what's wrong with a calm, comfortable existence? You feel relaxed, there are no risks in your life, you are happy with how things are going and do not feel any need to change anything. Maybe you don't feel incredibly happy, or 100% satisfied, but at least you feel comfortable, don't you?


Almost always, your comfort zone is the fruit of self-deception. You tell yourself that there is no better alternative to your current situation, that you have spent too much effort to build it, that it is already too hard to change anything in life. You stop at one though rather convenient place and with your own hands negate all the magnificent prospects of your life. The comfort zone turns into the end point of your journey for you. Why is this happening?

You're getting soft

What happens to a person who is immersed in a bath with warm water for a while? He relaxes, goes limp. And if such a stay is stretched out for quite a long time? That's right, it degrades. His muscles lose their tone and very soon he will not be able to not only run, but even just stand still.

But it's not just about the body. The same thing happens with our brain.

The lack of the need to solve complex problems leads to thinning in the head and loss of clarity of thinking, ability to learn and make decisions.

You become a vegetable that moves along the same trajectory every day and performs the same tasks every day.

Meanwhile, remember which period of your life was the most fruitful and creative for you? I am sure that these were not the most well-fed and comfortable times. Some will remember the student sleepless nights, others life-threatening travel and situations, others the crisis periods of their lives when everything had to start over.

You are giving up life goals

Everyone, well, almost everyone, has somewhere deep in the subcortex that most cherished goal of his life. Yes, something from the series «to see Paris and die ». The most interesting thing is that very often these goals are not so exorbitant and unattainable. But something always gets in the way.

We postpone our goal further and further, and as the comfort zone around you grows, it becomes almost unattainable. It's so hard to get out of a warm bath for a while and go outside.

You may never recognize yourself

There is an opinion, and it is quite justified, that only in difficulties the true face of a person is revealed. You can live your whole life in hothouse conditions and never find out what you are really capable of. Can you really be brave and resourceful? Will you really be able to show patience and perseverance, or is it just your imagination?

It's time to get out of your comfort zone and understand, if only for yourself, what kind of person you really are and where the limit of your capabilities lies. I assure you that the result will definitely surprise you.

Sooner or later, the comfort zone for any person turns into the factor that slows down his development and deprives life of the thrill. Remember the most interesting moments of your life. Surely most of them are connected with those moments when you did something unusual, extreme, going beyond the usual routine. They were getting out of their comfort zone.

So why not do it again?
