“Faith” is thin line between acceptance and denial. This faith means some of the best things happen when you are uncomfortable, when challenged by something and get a handle on fears. However, sometime this faith brings you to a state where you start believing that what you do is right. This process stop your growth and learning, puts you in to comfort zone. In fact many time people realize about the comfort zone when they come across an inspirational quote at some stage in their life, something that encourages you to do something out of the ordinary, something strange — something you wouldn’t normally do. But getting out of your routine takes a lot of work. Some time you give up or it’s very hard to break this comfort zone.
The point of stepping out of your comfort zone is to embrace new experiences, real growth begins at the end of your comfort zone. Breaking a habit, trying something new, taking a risk, making new connections, or putting yourself in a totally new situation won’t be easy, but it’s worth it. It’s exhausting but rewarding. Calvin Coolidge says, all growth depends upon activity. There is no development physically or intellectually without effort, and effort means work. It often observed that the secret to success lies in the very thing you’re avoiding. Those things that seem to break you down and humble your spirit.
If you master discomfort, you can master just about anything. Discomfort brings engagement and change. Discomfort means you’re doing something that others were unlikely to do, because they’re hiding out in the comfortable zone. Discomfort can be the joyful key that opens up everything for you. You can beat procrastination, start a new habit, learn a new language, make it through challenges and physically grueling events, explore new things, speak on a stage, and even embrace the minimalist lifestyle. Discomfort must be very much part of your master plan. So don’t worry when you are discomfort next time….
Whatever you do, look it as a challenge to move needle from good —-> best —> awesome. You may pay the heavy price for your fear of failure. However; It is a powerful obstacle to growth. It assures the progressive narrowing of the personality and prevents exploration and experimentation. There is no learning without you challenging to yourself. If you want to keep on challenging, you must keep learning and risking failure — all your life. It’s as simple as that.
