Your Best Life: Benefits of Stepping Out of Your Comfort Zone

October 18, 2017

You Start to Worry Less About a Failure and Feel Excited About the Journey

Failure is given, but the more you can embrace and learn from it, the better off you will be. Yes, disturbing your comfort zone, i.e. disturbing your least stressful condition, opens you to vulnerability or a failure, a very uncomfortable feeling. Every time I publish a post or a photograph, I open myself to a possible rejection. But if I don’t post, then I shut down my creative outlet. So I keep posting, and concentrate on being excited about blogging and creating this new community with you.

Stepping Out of Comfort Zone Broadens Your Points of View

As you continuously expand your comfort zone, you meet all sorts of different people you might not otherwise, you try different career paths to find the one that suits you the best, and you travel to unexpected places. But all these experiences broaden your horizons. This one is probably the most important one for me, because it helped me be receptive to the autism diagnosis of my son, and be creative and proactive in my search for help and treatment. He is now my great partner in pushing his limits and expanding his endless horizons.

    Love this post Zuma. As for getting out of my comfort zone , I think it has to be blogging. I didn’t even know how to send an email when I started. Still a lot to learn, but I love the challenge

    I have always had a hard time stepping out of my comfort. I have been foadrced to do so throughout my life. You are right, it helps you grow and learn. You also find out there are things you enjoy that you wouldn’t have realized if you didn’t try. Thank you so much for sharing
