Why leaving your comfort zone can be so rewarding

"Life begins at the end of your comfort zone."

"Anything you to do to stretch yourself out of your comfort zone will ultimately enable you to take larger risks and grow."

Inside our comfort zone we rarely seem pushed and rarely unlock our full potential or achieve what we're capable of. Often, people will stay in a job or relationship just because of its familiarity, security and the fact that the unknown can seem extremely daunting. After all, why break a routine if it's comfortable?

Just when you feel the last thing you need is a bit of anxiety or some last minute nerves, they kick in; you start to question yourself and fear the worst; What if I don't finish this work in time? What if she doesn't like me? It may feel like the end of the world is approaching, but actually, a little anxiety is a good thing.

Ways step outside of your comfort zone:

1. Most of us have a set daily routine, by making small changes to this we can push ourselves to step outside of our comfort zone. You don't have to make huge changes, small subtle differences in your day-to-day routine can be enough to change your perspective.

2. Fear of failure can be a big reason we stay within our comfort zones. If you want to achieve something go for it, if you dream of building a business, then give it a try.
