Dare to dream! You should start this article with this phrase, because it represents the most important goal you must achieve to leave the Comfort Zone , here you will find many reasons why you should leave the comfort zone, however, we are clear that many of us they will stay walking through life on “automatic pilot”, giving up dreams and passions, to stay comfortable and safe.

Most of us will remain in a boring job instead of seeking to undertake the dream of writing a book, or starting our own business, the ability to take risk in life is a key trait in determining the amount of success. and happiness that we will experience in life.

Reasons to leave the comfort zone

Personal growth almost always follows all times of adversity and discomfort. If you want to be better every day, grow as a person, and change the world, everything begins within you with the development of the courage to go beyond your comfort zone, since it is almost certain that what you want is the other side of your limits.

Here you can see a list of things that you could take into account when deciding whether to stay where you are or keep walking:

1. You can form new beliefs

Many times the borders of our comfort zone are simply the limiting beliefs of what we think we are capable of achieving. If we believe that the only way to pay the bills is to work for someone and get a fixed salary, it will be difficult for you to start a business and trust your own ability to determine the amount of money you can make.

2. You build self-esteem and confidence

Once you form new beliefs and feel the power and your capacity, you will begin to value your own potential, that which always resided within you. It doesn’t matter who you are or where you are or how old you are, once you prove to yourself that there are things beyond fear. You will gradually realize that you are much more capable than you have always thought.

3. You learn to better overcome adversity

Once you break out of your comfort zone, you will inevitably find yourself in a challenge zone. Here you will fight incredible battles against yourself, against your mind, against discomfort, and this will provide you with an infinite number of lessons. The most valuable will be that you are able to overcome adversity.

4. You will have fewer fears

Fear of the unknown is always the greatest fear , and because of this, the uncertainty that lies on the other side of our comfort zone is often very disabling. Once you can leave the comfort zone and realize the sea of ​​opportunities for personal growth that reside outside, you will no longer fear chaos, you will learn to love it.

5. You will find new opportunities

Within your comfort zone you can only see the immediate opportunities that exist within it. A whole world of new opportunities is possible, but only when you find yourself in discomfort will you see how many opportunities you have . You never know what your passion could be, so it’s best to experiment as much as you can.

6. You will make new relationships and partnerships

Many times our own beliefs that we hold within us limit our ability to make connections with certain people or types of people. For example, if you think that everyone of a certain race is bullies or bad people, it will be difficult to see that many people of that race are really good people with good intentions, with whom you can form meaningful connections without any problem. Don’t accept your beliefs about people, challenge them .

7. You will open your mind to learn new information

One thing is for sure, when you leave your comfort zone and go into the unknown, surely you are going to learn something . Even if you can’t, even if it’s hard or scary, you will learn something, and that new information or knowledge will be useful to you at some point in your life. Some things may be more useful than others, but remember, knowledge is power, knowledge comes from experience and understanding.

8. You will be able to identify your strengths and weaknesses as a person

The more you challenge yourself and go beyond your comfort limits, the more you will learn about yourself ; Over time, you will begin to realize what are your strengths and what are your weaknesses that you need to improve. We must focus on strengthening our strengths, and developing our weaknesses. We have to learn to look at ourselves as a long-term project and try to prepare for the day when we will meet our greatest test.

9. You will learn to say no the easy way, and yes the best way

Most of the time, the correct answer, or rather the best answer, is not the easy answer. It’s easier to eat a cheeseburger than it is to go home and make a salad, but there are more benefits to making salad. The best option is often the most difficult option, and stepping out of your comfort zone will help you learn the value of this simple belief .

10. You will encourage others to follow their dreams

Perhaps the greatest effect of stepping out of your comfort zone is that as you display courage and experience new and exciting things in life, others will be encouraged to do the same. By following your heart and pursuing personal growth each day, you will inspire others and learn how to become a leader.

Your comfort zone is an illusion that you have created to keep yourself safe , but life is not about safety: it is about living, laughing, loving, smiling and learning. From what I can tell, the meaning of life is to find its meaning, and once you find that, everything else is easy, but you will never find your purpose within the comfort of your bed and hidden in your office during the day. Unleash “a madness”, go out and find your best self.
