Grow Outside Of Your Comfort Zone

Grow Outside Of Your Comfort Zone Picture
To truly prosper, you must take part in activities and take risks which are outside your comfort zone.

Anyone and everyone can live their day to day lives doing what makes them comfortable. We are creatures of habit and so what you do day in day out will be your routine. To become successful in any field, you must ensure to come out of your comfort zone.

Open your mind to new opportunities. Take risks! You will be surprised to see the increase in creativity when you do look for different avenues. Your internal drive will also be ramped up because you are seeking new opportunities.

Another good thing to come out of growing out of your comfort zone is you will respond much more positively when unexpected stress comes your way. The fact that you are willing to put yourself out there and to try new things means that when something bad hits you, you will be equipped with the skills to adapt with this added pressure.

One way in which I grew outside of my comfort zone was when I took part in the National Citizen Service (NCS) and I had taken part in rock climbing. It may seem like such a small thing but I do have a fear of heights and so this was a huge thing for me. I did take part in this and it was actually really enjoyable. I enjoyed the task of reaching new heights (literally) and having fun with my friends.

Let me know in the comments below something you have done which was outside your comfort zone.

  1. The experiences from leaving your comfort zone are lasting, and often the ones you feel most proud of. I will share one of mine. A friend and I decided to bike ride back country on a former railway line. The tracks are gone but the trail remains through the mountains. We left in the rain on our bikes, and we rode three days, arriving home late the third day. We slept in a tent, in the forest, built fire pits dug into the ground and filled with rocks, found water from springs, and spent long days in the saddle- round trip 210 miles. Loved it.

    • Absolutely! I couldn’t agree more

      Haha love that story. See, when you are in the moment, it may feel uncomfortable but you will be so much more grateful having done it

  2. Yes. Kamran, your topic fits with something I read this morning: “When we allow ourselves to be disturbed out of complacency, (love this) we make room in our hearts and lives for the Kingdom of God to emerge and amaze us.” – Liuan Huska.

  3. I started writing snippets of my personal and work life in my blog this year, which is something I would not choose to do typically. This is to challenge myself to write to improve my thought process, and to improve my writing skills.

  4. Very significant post,I agree with all your tips,invaluable indeed.It’s good to try to find some other options beside the real task so that others may not get the opportunity to take you for granted. Thanks a lot for sharing. 🌹🙏

  5. Two years ago, I decided to step out of my writing comfort zone (which is inspirational non-fiction) and try writing a short science fiction adventure story for my kids. Just for fun. Well, it grew and weaved itself into a middle-grade adventure novel! What a surprise. I didn’t even know I could write, never mind love writing, fiction. I’m so thankful I tried something new.

    • Lovely story Sara! Thank you soo much for sharing and I hope you continue to work outside your comfort zone so you have more stories to share and more experiences to be proud if

  6. The first time I ever set foot inside a church was very out of my comfort zone! It was a totally different world for me. Years later, however, I look back at that moment and laugh because I am not the person I was. I am definitely not as timid and uncomfortable as I used to be. So, you’re right about comfort zones, Kamran. Moving beyond them helps us to succeed. 😊 I really enjoyed your post. I appreciate the positivity and motivation. Thanks for sharing.
