Kill Your Comfort Zone

Your comfort zone is holding you back.

It’s the warm bed in the morning that you don’t want to get out of.

It’s the Candy Crush you use to avoid something more important.

It’s the safe job keeping you from taking the plunge.

It’s staying home instead of doing something new.

It’s what is known versus what could be.

Comfort is stagnate.

Growth is uncomfortable.

By definition, growth is the opposite of comfort, of stasis, of stagnation.

Growth happens outside of your comfort zone.

Growth happens when you take on new challenges.

Growth happens when you embrace the unfamiliar.

Growth doesn’t just happen. It’s a conscious decision to do something you don’t feel comfortable with, something that challenges you. It’s a decision to do something even though you don’t know what the outcome will be.

Growth leads to a potential for rewards that comfort will never bring.

Growth is a calculated risk.

You can’t live within your comfort zone 100% of the time and expect to grow. The more time you spend outside of your comfort zone, the more you’ll grow.

Want growth? Kill your comfort zone.
