Staying in your comfort zone?
Comfort zone is a place in everyone's life where we enjoy life at most. It's a place of enjoyment and of course comfort. The comfort zone is a place void of worries and anxiety. To some people their comfort zone may be in their parents house, where they don't have to pay the bills or live a hard life. To others their comfort zone could be anywhere, it could be a town with good prospects and all that.
Due to life events and other things, people at least once in their lifetime have to leave their comfort zone to make or start a new life elsewhere. Some even believed that if a person wants to amount to something worthwhile in life, he or she has to leave his or her comfort zone and go elsewhere in finding himself or herself.
Comfort zone in itself is not bad as nobody in life wants a place of discomfort, everyone fancy a nice and easy life. However, staying too long in the comfort zone is not ideal and can have some pretty bad consequences on people. Comfort zone may kill a person's high dreams of success. Why? because the comfort zone doesn't push people to work harder, it makes them feel relax. Most of the successful people we know all around us today own their own success to the fact that things were not rosy for them at the early stage of their life, hence they were gingered by their unpleasant condition to work things better for themselves. If such people remain in their comfort zone, they might not have attained success in the long run.
Staying too long in the comfort zone won't earn you any respect. Because you haven't really faced the harsh realities of the outside world, hence you will be abused by people around you. Consider a man of marriageable age still living aimlessly in his father's house. Such man cannot earn the respect of people around him. Until he make up his mind to start his own life by leaving his parents house such person will be underrated by people. Staying in the comfort zone means he's still depending either financially or mentally on his parents and that's too bad. One of the inevitable steps in the road to success is leaving one's comfort zone. Success doesn't come to people easily, it comes to people who intentionally and diligently pursue success. Independence is very vital in achieving success. Always have an Independent mindset, don't be too dependent on people with your needs.
Nobody has the obligation to be providing all of your needs for you, our parents can't even provide for all of our needs and there's also that stage where they ask you to start working for yourself too. You must be able to improvise in certain situations of life.
Do you know that leaving your comfort zone is a Herculean task and that you need to have a good plan before venturing into an unknown journey. If you don't have a good plan of what you're looking for and how to achieve it, and you just leave your comfort zone, you will suffer a great deal. That's why some people don't leave that comfort zone, not because they don't want to but they haven't figured out yet their life plan. As you go in the new year, have a concise plan of what you want to achieve and set your goals.
