A World of Possibilities Wait for You Outside Your Comfort Zone
Throughout my life, I’ve met lots of different kind of people. I’ve met brilliant ones, people who are the most loving, and those who don’t cease to surprise me.
I’ve met a lot of successful people. They all don’t come from privileged backgrounds, but I must admit, it does help. I am not ignorant to the systemic challenges that people face in climbing the social ladder, but if you want a better life than the one you currently have, you have to work towards it.
You can’t stay in your comfort zone. If you want a life you’ve never had, you’ll have to do things you’ve never done before. You’ll have to grow to be an evolved version of yourself that is putting yourself on that path.
There’s nothing wrong with you being in your comfort zone. Your quality of life will stay consistent. If you stay there, your life will stay similar to how it is right now. If that’s what you want, that’s great. I know too many people who are stuck in their comfort zone. They constantly complain about their life (usually about not having enough money) and aren’t willing to do anything about it. It’s unfortunate and heart breaking in so many ways.
But if that’s not what you want, you’ll need to do something; it won’t happen automatically. You’ll need to be courageous and take action that you’re not used to.
Going outside your comfort zone can take many forms. It may be applying for a different job, moving to a place that has more opportunities, or going back to school. It can be as small as trying something new or as big as reaching out to someone for help. Change can be scary, but to improve your lifestyle, it’s necessary.
The life you’ve always dreamed of is waiting for you just outside your comfort zone.
