                                              It’s easy to feel small and alone in such a big, scary world, but it just means that you have more space to grow.

                                                  Things can sometimes move a little too fast, and it can be suffocating. Nothing beats the feeling of breaking free. It just takes a bit of courage.

                                                    The secret to youth and prosperity is the unrelenting desire to learn. Whenever you’re feeling down, go find out something you’ve never known before. It might help to remind you how little of this world you’ve experienced.

                                                              Mahatma Gandhi once said:

                                                              “The world is big enough to satisfy everyone’s needs, but will always be too small to satisfy everyone’s greed.”

                                                              So remember, it’s a large world for reasons that matter.

                                                              10 Ways To Step Out Of Your Comfort Zone And Enjoy Taking Risks

                                                              10 Ways To Step Out Of Your Comfort Zone And Enjoy Taking Risks

                                                              The ability to take risks by stepping outside your comfort zone is the primary way by which we grow. But we are often afraid to take that first step.

                                                              In truth, comfort zones are not really about comfort, they are about fear. Break the chains of fear to get outside. Once you do, you will learn to enjoy the process of taking risks and growing in the process.

                                                              Here are 10 ways to help you step out of your comfort zone and get closer to success:

                                                              1. Become aware of what’s outside of your comfort zone

                                                              What are the things that you believe are worth doing but are afraid of doing yourself because of the potential for disappointment or failure?

                                                              Draw a circle and write those things down outside the circle. This process will not only allow you to clearly identify your discomforts, but your comforts. Write identified comforts inside the circle.

                                                              2. Become clear about what you are aiming to overcome

                                                              Take the list of discomforts and go deeper. Remember, the primary emotion you are trying to overcome is fear.

                                                              Advertising

                                                              How does this fear apply uniquely to each situation? Be very specific.

                                                              Are you afraid of walking up to people and introducing yourself in social situations? Why? Is it because you are insecure about the sound of your voice? Are you insecure about your looks?

                                                              Or, are you afraid of being ignored?

                                                              3. Get comfortable with discomfort

                                                              One way to get outside of your comfort zone is to literally expand it. Make it a goal to avoid running away from discomfort.

                                                              Let’s stay with the theme of meeting people in social settings. If you start feeling a little panicked when talking to someone you’ve just met, try to stay with it a little longer than you normally would before retreating to comfort. If you stay long enough and practice often enough, it will start to become less uncomfortable.

                                                              4. See failure as a teacher

                                                              Many of us are so afraid of failure that we would rather do nothing than take a shot at our dreams.

                                                              Advertising

                                                              Begin to treat failure as a teacher. What did you learn from the experience? How can you take that lesson to your next adventure to increase your chance of success?

                                                              Many highly successful people failed plenty of times before they succeeded. Here’re some examples:

                                                              5. Take baby steps

                                                              Don’t try to jump outside your comfort zone, you will likely become overwhelmed and jump right back in.

                                                              Take small steps toward the fear you are trying to overcome. If you want to do public speaking, start by taking every opportunity to speak to small groups of people. You can even practice with family and friends.

                                                              Take a look at this article on how you can start taking baby steps:

                                                              6. Hang out with risk takers

                                                              There is no substitute for this step.

                                                              Don’t say “Oh, I just don’t have the time for this right now.” Instead, be honest and say “I am afraid to do this.”
