I will not say that I am completely perfect in this area. Getting out of my comfort zone has scared me most of my life. We all want to be comfortable. We don’t want to feel any pain. We don’t want to go through any hardships. We don’t want to struggle. Who wants to do any of that? It’s not fun and it doesn’t feel good. Why would anyone want to do that?
Well, believe to or not growth is on the other side of the comfort zone. We cannot grow if we are always comfortable. We cannot gain knowledge, connect with people, build a better life, and in some cases have fun, if we are always comfortable. Life is a balance of ups and downs. Everyday won’t be a good day. What I have also learned as an adult…every path won’t be straight and narrow. Every situation will not be laid out on the table.
Sometimes you will have to figure things out. Sometimes you will have to say and do things that are not popular. Some of the things you will have to say and do will scare the mess out of you. You will never grow if you don’t push through the fear and the “what if’s”. Our minds can play tricks on us at times. It will tell us that we are not capable of doing things and that we shouldn’t do things. We are tricked, by our minds, into thinking that is the right way to go. What I have learned in my adult years is sometimes doing the “right thing” is not the right thing.
I have learned that not all planned things are carried out successfully. You have to know how to impromptu and roll with the punches at times. Getting what you want will never be easy. It will never be a skip across a field of roses. You have to be willing to get dirty and messy (Figuratively and in some cases…literally). Getting out of your comfort zone is necessary for growth, moving forward, and accomplishing goals/tasks. You will ever know what you can become if you never get out of our comfort zone.
