When was the last time you did something for the first time?
Have you ever tried something new or changed something so dramatically that you lose all sense of coordination and end up flat on your back? The magic in life my friend, begins at the end of your comfort zone. You’ve heard people say you need to get out of the ease of life, right? You need to stretch yourself, they say. It’ll be good for you. Everyone seems to agree with this idea, but what do we actually know about the comfort zone? This means doing things that you hate, resist or even fear doing. It is all about trying new things and taking that leap to get out of the familiar. It’s about finding who you are truly capable of being and finding that balance where you can confidently take up new challenges. Stepping out of the familiar is necessary for your own growth because you cannot become a better version of yourself, unless you are willing to stretch beyond what you already know.The trick is to fall in love with discomfort, taking up failures as lessons and last but not the least, enjoying the process of stepping outside your safe boundaries. Enjoy the fun of discovering things about yourself that you may not have been aware of previously. So, break the chains of fear, step out and conquer little things each day. Add a tinge of craziness in your daily life and wait for the magical journey that lies ahead.
