Comfort zone binding your freedom

“If you always do what is easy and choose the path of least resistance, you never step outside your comfort zone. Great things don’t come from comfort zones.”

By Roy Bennett

What keeps binding your freedom?  Is your comfort zone.

Bravely step out of the comfort zone, looking for a better world and a better self!

Everyone has their own comfortable circle. The so-called comfort zone is in your familiar circle, facing familiar people and things.

The comfort zone is like a circle, with your friends, family, everything in your life, where you live, where you work, and so on. We live in our own comfortable circle every day, because we feel free, relaxed and safe to stay in our own comfort zone.

With a comfortable circle, I think probably everyone wants to stay in their own circle, and they don’t want to change their current life and routine without anything.

“We are so accustomed to the comforts of “I cannot”, “I do not want to” and “it is too difficult” that we forget to realize when we stop doing things for ourselves and expect others to dance around us, we are not achieving greatness. We have made ourselves weak.”

By Pandora Poikilos

However, if one day we encounter something that needs to step out of our comfort zone, have you ever thought about what will happen to you?

“Will be afraid”

“I don’t have the courage”

“I’m afraid of making mistakes”

“I’m afraid of strangers”

Is that what you think?

“You never change your life until you step out of your comfort zone; change begins at the end of your comfort zone.”

By Roy T. Bennett

I once read a sentence: “Humans have a natural fear of the world outside the circle, because strangeness makes them seem to have come to an uninhabited desert island.”

Yes, if we leave the comfort zone, we will be afraid and fearful, because things outside the circle are very strange to us and will make us feel a strong sense of insecurity.

But if you are afraid, how can you improve?

In our lives, we will inevitably encounter some things outside our comfort zone that require us to muster the courage to face. And these things are a way that we must go through when we grow up, and they are also a way that will enable us to truly grow.

“Ends are not bad things, they just mean that something else is about to begin. And there are many things that don’t really end, anyway, they just begin again in a new way. Ends are not bad and many ends aren’t really an ending; some things are never-ending.”

By C. JoyBell C.

We must understand that “The end of one thing means the beginning of another. At the turning point of this process, there is something everyone needs to learn called adapting to the new environment. For example, after graduating from high school, you must adapt to the new environment of the university, and you must adapt to the new working environment when you change jobs.

For people who live in their comfort zone, it seems that they can’t learn the lesson of adapting to the new environment. They are unwilling to jump out of their circles and re-examine the new environment. What are they afraid of?

Having your own comfort zone is about the same as having your own social circle. Staying with friends you know can be very free and free, and there is no restriction at all. However, in the new environment, they are afraid of being alone because they are not brave enough to make new friends. The reason is that in this process, apart from taking the initiative, it also depends on whether the other party is willing to accept himself.

“Like an animal, I adapted to the world around me until it became my norm. This is me now. I’m a killer…”

By Arti Manani

If they step out of their comfort zone, they will have a lot of worries. For example, worry about whether you will not adapt to the new environment, whether you will be unpleasant in the new environment, and so on. Because of too many concerns, they are unwilling to try to take that step.

But life is all about you not working hard, if you never take that step, you will always live in your own circle. You will never make progress in this way, and you will never learn new things. If you are willing to step out of your own circle, you will find that things outside the circle are nothing more than that. Things will not be worse than imagined, but people always need a little time to adapt. Chinese people always said: “There must be a road before the car reaches the mountain, when the boat gets to the pier-head, it will go straight with the current”, mean everything will be all right, and the new environment will always force us to grow up.

Challenge yourself

Do you like to challenge something you dare not do? Such as extreme challenges, horror film challenges. If so, then your life must be wonderful.

“The comfort zone is a psychological state in which one feels familiar, safe, at ease, and secure. You never change your life until you step out of your comfort zone; change begins at the end of your comfort zone.”

By Roy T. Bennett

But I believe that people who like to live in their comfort zone must be reluctant to challenge some things they dare not do, because they are reluctant to overcome psychological fears.

Here I can only say that if you are unwilling to try to challenge yourself, you will never know how powerful you are. It only takes you a brave step to discover that things are not as scary and difficult as you imagined. But if you are unwilling to challenge something you have never done before, you may never know how difficult it is.

Therefore, many people like to challenge themselves to extreme challenges, because they want to test how brave they are, and want to overcome their fears to discover and enjoy the beauty of the moment. If you overcome the fear in your heart, you will discover a new and beautiful world, and you will also reap a new brave yourself.

“True potential for growth is measured by your willingness to let go of what you think you know, and embrace something seemingly contrary, thereby, challenging yourself to go higher. It is impossible to learn something new without rejecting something old.”

By C. Orville McLeish


“Life is a process during which one initially gets less and less dependent, independent, and then more and more dependent.”

By Mokokoma Mokhonoana

What kind of talent is considered independent? It is undoubtedly that you can support yourself on your own, not relying on others too much. Independence is the process of discovering oneself, discovering that there is a most loyal friend, that is oneself. If things are within my control, then I don’t have to rely on others, I can rely on myself.

It is impossible for a person to be independent at birth. Independence is cultivated slowly, and it all depends on experience. How can I become an independent person? It is undoubtedly to continue to accept challenges and face failures.

It is not that people living in their comfort zone cannot be independent at all, but what they can be independent is also the things in their comfort zone. If something unexpected happens, they may become anxious and uneasy. The reason is simple, that is, they are usually unwilling to challenge things outside the circle, causing them to accumulate insufficient experience to face unexpected situations.

If you are willing to step out of your comfort zone, you will face a variety of problems, and these problems must always fail when you overcome them in the first place. But even if you fail, you will gain new experience from it, so it won’t be so difficult the next time you overcome it. Stepping out of your comfort zone must be your right choice.

“You must always overcome your comfort zone”

By Sunday Adelaja

For the outside world, the unknown is indeed too frightening. It is indeed very difficult for people to get out of the inherent comfort zone. Many people dare not try because they feel that they do not have enough ability to face the difficulties outside the circle. Many people tried to go out, but faced Lou Ci’s failure, which led to denial of the world outside the circle. So, it takes a lot of courage and strength to get out of your comfort zone. Perhaps there will be someone in your life who will pull you out of your comfort zone and make you a better version of yourself.

Although stepping out of the comfort zone will make us easy to make mistakes, only when we make mistakes can we learn new things from it. It is impossible to expand our horizons by moving around in a circle that we are familiar with. Only when we cross the line of the circle can we increase our knowledge and build a better self. In this way, our small circle can be drawn bigger and bigger, and can contain more things.

Get out of your comfort zone and discover more little things!

“Expose yourself to your deepest fear; after that, fear has no power, and the fear of freedom shrinks and vanishes. You are free.”

The harder you work, the luckier you are!

“If you don’t give up on something you truly believe in, you will find a way.”
By Roy T. Bennett

To you who are chasing dreams: “Don’t give up if you have a dream!”

“What is your dream? Which one do you choose, dream or reality? Five years of pursuit, the answer is still unclear, no matter how you must continue to walk on thorns.”

When we were young, we were often asked by most people: “What is your dream?”

Yes, everyone has their own dreams and what they want to be in the future, but many times life is not what they want. You are happy when you imagine realizing your dreams in the future, but often reality will ruthlessly crush your beautiful imagination.

Choosing between dream and reality is like choosing between a job you like and a job with a ‘money’ job. How would you choose? I believe that most people will choose the most popular job and give up the job they like, because we all think that interest cannot be used as a meal. So, in the same way, dreams and reality, I believe most people will choose to rely on reality.

“Why don’t you try to do what you like?”

What is your reason? “Family situation is not ideal”, “Family does not support”, “I want to take a stable road”, is this your reason?

Nothing can stop you from doing what you like, so don’t find reasons to convince yourself. No road is always smooth, because such a road is meaningless. We only live this time. If we choose the path we want, we must go on no matter how difficult it is.

“I have walked a lot and got a lot of marginalization. The same is being yourself but being used to compare. I have stepped into this society before it has transformed, just treat all the injuries you have suffered as tuition fees.”

We often encounter many setbacks and blows on the way to growth. These are all good things; setbacks will force us to grow and know how to deal with problems.

And those who grow up with us must have people who like and don’t like us. We often do our truest self, but we somehow hear others talking about ourselves behind our backs. We can’t control their thoughts, but we can control our own lives. Your own life is up to you to make decisions, and you no need change yourself to please others, because no matter how you change, others can’t be satisfied with yourself.

“Don’t care, the so-called gossip; Keep your initial heart, be firm and don’t doubt it.”

On the road to chasing dreams, there will inevitably be doubts, because we have no strength, and others don’t want to believe us. But we can’t just give up in pursuit of dreams, we must prove ourselves and let them know that those who are willing to unconditionally support themselves when they have nothing have made the right choice!

When chasing dreams, we are often influenced by the outside world and it is easy for us to give up, because our beliefs are not firm enough, so we often give up halfway. It only takes a second to give up, but when you want to give up, ask yourself first, “Why did you do this in the first place”, always remember and feel the beginning of the initial heart.

Persisting all the way until now, you can’t give up so easily. “Why do I think to give up when I try so hard?” If every time you can’t adhere to, tell yourself: “Insist on for a while”, you may find that it is not difficult to persist.

Colorful world, just need to maintain the initial heart, I believe that it is not difficult to persist!

“The road ahead has never been clear, how can the darkness of the world let me follow my heart.”

“I don’t know how much darkness this road is, nor how many turns this road has; if you go forward and don’t look back, you will never be impatient, and you will never find the wrong answer.”

“Live the Life of Your Dreams: Be brave enough to live the life of your dreams according to your vision and purpose instead of the expectations and opinions of others.”

By Roy T. Bennett

People who have dreams it’s not because they know what the future will be then they have a dream. People with dreams are full of longing for the future, but they don’t know what will change in the future. So, people who are brave to chase dreams are brave, because they know nothing about the future but persist on to the dream to move forward.

Dream chasers firmly believe that the end of this road is good, bright, and promising, so they will not look back, if they do not look back, the decisions they make will not be wrong.

A really easy way to walk is not a broad road, but a trail, because you can gain more experience as you walk through as many turning road.

“You may be the only person left who believes in you, but it’s enough. It takes just one star to pierce a universe of darkness. Never give up.”

By  Richelle E. Goodrich
