Fear is a valuable thing. It keeps people safe and encourages caution when caution is due. But Fear can also be a limiting factor because not everything you’re afraid of should really be feared.
Have you ever been faced with a situation where you were afraid of making a decision, making a change or taking a risk?
Did you end up taking that risk or making that decision? Or, did you just stay put and left things as they were?
It’s in our nature to like feeling safe to be in comfort and away from danger.
There are two kinds of people: the realists and the dreamers.
The realists are the logical and cautious type of individuals who always think and weigh out the pros and cons before making any decisions. As a result, they tend to make safe choices and stick to their comfort. The dreamers are have big lofty ambitions, are risk takers. They often always challenge the norms of society and dare to think outside the box. They are more likely to change the course of their journey through time and by following their heart.
So which of the two do you think are better than the other?
In life, balance is always key.
Stepping outside of your comfort zone is a fear that should be embraced. Whether it’s deciding to drop out of University to start your own business, or moving to a new country on your own.
Living outside of one’s comfort zone is by definition uncomfortable. Therefore, the best habit you can foster within yourself is the practice of becoming familiar with discomfort.
