"Acknowledging the unproductive thoughts and ineffective behavior that you've tried to ignore can be uncomfortable. But, stepping out of your comfort zone and choosing to proactively address bad habits will skyrocket your ability to create long-lasting change." - Amy Morin

We all want life to just run smoothly, without the need to concern ourselves over potential threats to our method of survival, or any impact to our routine, and what we know. We don't want no disruptions, or change, nor to encounter anything that involves risk to the way we live. We like the feeling of being in control, being knowledgeable, and biggest of all, we like having the feeling of having complete comfort and security. We will seek to avoid placing ourselves in situations and circumstances which make us feel awkward, or we feel a lack of control, and lacking in experience. That's it in a nutshell, we just prefer to live our life in the way we are accustomed to, are familiar with, and what makes us feel comfortable. Comfort is living in a state of physical ease, without constraint or pain, of course we all want that. Who wants to be constrained or feel pain, after all? The unfortunate thing about this though, is by living in such a way, we are denying ourselves some of the most wonderful blessings that life has to offer, such as success, happiness, and prosperity. It's a proven fact that true happiness, success, and personal growth, can only be achieved when we are willing to step out of our comfort zone. When we aren't challenging ourselves, but instead, we continue to remain stagnant in life, we become stale. Life constantly encourages us to learn, grow, develop, and mature, and what we often find is by continually resisting to step out of our comfort zone, life begins to start making things uncomfortable for us anyway. We get that subtle nudge that we need to be making changes, we need to be working harder, and we need to be taking some risks, in order to be continually enhancing our life. The longer we resist doing so, the more that life makes us feel more frustrated, agitated, and uncomfortable. We were all born to succeed and achieve greatness, but if we turn our back on working hard, pushing ourselves, and striving to achieve our goals, life will force those challenges upon us. Whilst we believe we are finding comfort and security in the way we live currently, in our routine, and in doing what we know, by refusing to act, take risks, and make changes, we are inviting discomfort into our lives anyway. Life is about progress and growth, not settling for mediocrity. How is there any happiness and success in living a life where we trot off to a job, for five days of the week, earning barely enough to adequately survive on, consuming most of our time in doing so, whilst we sacrifice such important aspects of life, such as family time, sleep, our happiness, our mental health, and our goals, in order to accommodate such a lifestyle? We get comfortable with it, because at least we are paying our bills, yet there is an opportunity to step out of that normality, and perhaps start a business, or try a different line of work, which has the potential for far greater rewards. Most of us don't do so however, because there is risk involved, and it will take us out of our comfort zone, and as a result, we deny ourselves of a beneficial opportunity for learning, growth, development, and worst of all, success. Here are 10 quotes to encourage us to be brave, and have the courage to take risks, make changes, and step out of our comfort zone, so we can grow and succeed in life.
