Why Life Begins at the End of Your Comfort Zone

Breaking out of your comfort zone doesn’t have an age limit.

It is never too late to do something, even slightly, out of your bubble of content.

Remember, the odds are ever in your favor.

It could be something like joining a book club full of women you don’t know.

Even if it backfires and the women are only interested in reading 50 Shades of Gray, I guarantee you will learn something new!

Maybe it’s pushing yourself harder than normal in a work out- doing just one more rep than you’d intended, or sprinting for the last 20 seconds of your run.

No matter how big or small the step out of your zone is, you’ll look at things a different way.

Your comfort zone is just the way you like it, which often leads to tunnel vision, boredom & stagnation.

That feeling of your heart pumping against the chest, that adrenaline sensation that no one can quite describe…THAT is out of your zone.

It might be before you jump out the airplane with your parachute, or asking someone out on a date.

Whatever makes you feel most alive and inspired. This all happens out of your space of comfort.

‘No regrets’ is one of those sayings that for most people, is a tired expression.

Regretting something is a huge waste of energy – there are no time machines for us to fix our errors.

What we CAN do is learn from it…

Inspiration often has a chain reaction.

You see someone doing something inspiring, you think to yourself, wow maybe I can do that too.

Maybe you know someone with a similar comfort zone to yours?

Why not lead by example and invite them to do something with you?

People notice things, whether you realize it or not.

People are watching you, and what you do gives them an inspiring role model for growth and change.

Start today, start with something small.

There are no rules when it comes to you branching out.

Change your daily routine, contact a friend you haven’t seen in years, apply for a new job, start studying again – the list of things to do is endless.

Remember, its all relative.

Don’t compare your zone to others.

This is not a race. It’s your life.

Start peeling away the layers of comfort to create something bigger and better for you and the people around you.

Stay #FitProStrong, my friends,
