From Comfort to Growth

We often stay in our comfort zone because, well, it’s comfortable — but is comfort good for us? While yes, we feel safe and in control in our comfort zones, we don’t grow there. We don’t push ourselves to learn more and be better and truly grow. Comfort and growth are mutually exclusive. We trade one for the other. We aren’t saying you need to constantly be pushing yourself — that’s tiring and unrealistic. We are saying, however, that at times you will need to toe the line of comfort and fear in order to learn and grow. 

The comfort zone

In the comfort zone, you feel safe and in control. This isn’t always a good thing, though. Comfort breeds complacency. In this zone, you become so used to your norm that you don’t wish for anything outside of what you already know. You definitely aren’t growing in this zone. You stay the same because you fear the unknown. Today, try to move past comfort. 

The fear zone

Directly outside of the comfort zone is the fear zone. In the fear zone, you often make excuses for why you should go back to your comfort zone. In this zone, you are often influenced by others because of your lack of self-confidence. Today, try to move past your fears. 

The learning zone

Once you get past the initial fear of leaving your comfort zone, you are able to learn new techniques that can help you grow. In the learning zone, you are faced with challenges that will test you. These challenges will expand your comfort zone. Once you master these new challenges, your comfort zone grows. Don’t stop there. Today, push yourself to learn something new. 

The growth zone

The growth zone is the place you want to be. In the growth zone, you are reaching the goals you have set for yourself. Then, you are able to set new goals. You are living the dreams you envisioned for yourself. You are conquering whatever stands in your way. You may not knock them down and move past them on your first try — that’s okay. No one is perfect. Today, find purpose in your life by growing a little bit each and every day.
