Overcoming your comfort zone

“You never change your life until you step out of your comfort zone; change begins at the end of your comfort zone”.

What is comfort zone?

It is basically a  sturdy , impregnable, fabricated and unsubstantial wall a person builds around himself .

And he feels very safe , secure and Happy in that zone.


We all do have our own comfort zone and we also feel very reluctant in coming out of it , It might be because we are afraid to come out of it , we might be very lazy to come out of it , we brainstorm on what other people might think about you and  You might be  even too shy to come out of it.


I have realized; it is during the times I am far outside my element that I experience myself the most. That I see and feel who I really am, the most! I think that’s what a comet is like, you see, a comet is born in the outer realms of the universe! But it’s only when it ventures too close to our sun or to other stars that it releases the blazing “tail” behind it and shoots brazen through the heavens! And meteors become sucked into our atmosphere before they burst like firecrackers and realize that they’re shooting stars! That’s why I enjoy taking myself out of my own element, my own comfort zone, and hurling myself out into the unknown. Because it’s during those scary moments, those unsure steps taken, that I am able to see that I’m like a comet hitting a new atmosphere: suddenly I illuminate magnificently and fire dusts begin to fall off of me! I discover a smile I didn’t know I had, I uncover a feeling that I didn’t know existed in me… I see myself. I’m a shooting star. A meteor shower. But I’m not going to die out. I guess I’m more like a comet then. I’m just going to keep on coming back.


You might experience tonnes of gravitational force pulling you back

But once you come out of it, Boy the world is your’s.


For example ,

Whenever you are asked to give a presentation or seminar in a classroom.

Sitting with your friends might be your comfort zone and coming out of it is also too difficult but once you stand up among the hundred students among the class , ” Mark my words you’ll  be a dynamic leader one day”.

It’s up to you now , whether you want to be one among the hundred or the only one in the hundred.


You never change your life until you step out of your comfort zone; change begins at the end of your comfort zone.
