The place where we believe we are safe yet is possibly the most dangerous place on Earth.
Eddie Harris Jr put it aptly when he said “The sooner you step away from your comfort zone, you’ll realize that it really wasn’t all that comfortable”.
So, here are surprising ways the comfort zone is ruining your life.
Without wasting any time further, let’s dive into the topic, “How Comfort Zone Ruins Your Life?”

It’s well accepted that one of the greatest takeaways we can send children into the world with is resilience but resilience is built through your life from day one until the day you die.
Resilience gives you the capacity to enjoy life despite challenges instead of collapse into a heap and never get up again.
Within the comfort zone, there are no challenges to help you build resilience to work out your IQ and prepare yourself to deal with whatever comes your way.
In fact, you’re doing yourself a disservice because you make things so much harder for yourself to go through life like a baby with no skills or experience, that is then asked to make their own meals.
Babie’s cooking in the kitchen is just silly and so is staying in your comfort zone.
Year in, year out so get out of it!
When we take no risks and hold on to routine for dear life, we’re not living we are just oxygen thieves adding little value to ourselves, and those around us.
If we’re doing the same thing day in day out, we’re not exactly going to be a riveting company. Are we?!
Figure out what you’re genuinely afraid of when you think of stepping out of the comfort zone.
Are you worried that people will judge you or are you afraid you don’t measure up to others’ expectations of you?
Are you concerned that you’re not smart enough to engage in conversation with others?
There’s this beautiful cliché that says “amazing things stand on the other side of fear and as overused as we think it is”. It is 100% true!
You are worthy and valued but that starts with valuing yourself.
Who are you really?
Do people know the real you?
Do you know the real you or have you been living through all the distorted views of others for so long that you’ve forgotten who you really are!
Until you step out of your comfort zone, you’re never going to truly know who you are, and who you could potentially be
It stifles creativity
Your routine is a case of wash, rinse, repeat.
You eat the same food, you watch the same genre of entertainment on Netflix, you read the same one-sided viewed articles, and you hang out with the same people.
How on Earth do you get your creative juices flowing if this is your lifestyle that inspires you to work harder?
Improve and challenge yourself, and become a better person!
When you leave the comfort zone behind, that’s when the magic happens.
You find a new hobby and learn a new skill. And for example, you realize you actually enjoy horse riding which brings us to our next point number three.
When you’re watching the same news channel every day or reading the same news website, you’re only exposing yourself to certain angles of news or life in general.
This can lead to a biased and one-sided interpretation of events, and speaking to outsiders can often feel challenging when different points of view are brought across.
Depending on the news source, the information brought forward is often biased.
We’ve seen it with recent American elections where certain sites were pro-Trump or pro-Biden, and each news article would look into the fault with either political candidate.
With that in mind, it’s easy to focus on the negatives of each candidate when your source of news is only telling you the things they want you to hear.
It’s up to you to get your information from various sources so you can step out of your comfort zone and see things from a different perspective
Let’s stick with the horse example. Perhaps you’ve always wanted to ride a horse and have been too damn afraid so you never try and you feel crap about it often.
You wonder what it would feel like to have your legs wrapped around a beautiful stallion, feeling the wind blowing through your hair and your body, almost floating as the horse gallops along the beach.
Now imagine for a moment you fight your fear and you sign up for a guided beach ride.
You absolutely love every single minute of it and now you’re heading to the stables every weekend.
You meet new people, you find new interests and your life has changed dramatically and you found a side of yourself you didn’t know existed.
Replace horses with anything like cooking, singing, dancing, skating, writing, or blogging. Just take the first step!
Martin Luther King Jr once said “you may be 38 years old as I happen to be, and one day some great opportunity stands before you and calls you to stand up for some great principle.
Some great issue, some great cause and you refuse to do it because you’re afraid…
Well, you may go on and live until you’re 90 but you’re just as dead at 38 as you would be at 90 and the cessation of breathing in your life is but the belated announcement of an earlier death of the spirit.”
Is that how you want to live?!
Your life just coasting through or do you want to give it horns as Martin Luther King Jr did.
The more you say yes to things, the more you will grow and the more doors will open for you that is something that can change your life.
Whether it’s with a partner, a career you feel meh about, or even just the people you choose to hang out with.
When you remain in your comfort zone, these parts of your life are often just mediocre.
You stick to the same job because it’s safe and you know you’re going to receive a paycheck at the end of every month.
You hang on to your partner because better the devil you know than the devil you don’t, and you keep the same group of friends because however uninspiring they may be at least there are no surprises.
Are you kidding me?!
This is no way to live your life!
Ditch the partner, know your worth when it comes to your job and we give you permission to go out and meet new people and do not feel guilty about it.
You are worth way more than a mediocre life so go out and take some risks and reap the rewards because you deserve it!
It is really that simple you can’t expect a change in your life if you’re doing the same thing day after day.
This quote insanity is doing the same thing over and over again and expecting different results is often misattributed to Albert Einstein but it’s actually believed to be from a narcotics anonymous pamphlet published in 1981.
Although worded slightly differently regardless of who quoted it, it’s relevant to what we’re saying if you’re not going to step out of your comfort zone, you can’t expect things in your life to change.
If you’re keen to meet someone but you keep going to the local drinking hole down the road from you. Do you think one night someone absolutely perfect for you is just going to waltz in through the door?
This is not a hallmark movie, it’s life! And if you don’t get up off your butt and get yourself out there to meet someone they’re not just going to fall right into your lap. No risk, no reward!

“We’re problem solvers pioneers and inventors by very nature” – If this wasn’t true then humans would never have evolved from hunter-gatherer to tool mastery like we did everything from our brain to our bodies, and all that lies in between thrives on being challenged take.
For example, exercising if you just stick to the same 30-minute circuit at the gym routine, you won’t see any improvement getting fitter or more built or leaner.
It happens when we challenge our bodies to move more than they currently are comfortable with and the same principle applies to our mental capacity.
If you want to optimize your brain, you won’t find the solution in your comfort zone!
When we’re doing the same thing over and over again, we get kinda lazy we’re not challenged anymore.
We make mistakes and we don’t give our best effort to the task at hand. It’s time to shake things up a little. Start small if you have to.
Change your route to work. Head to a different coffee shop, buy yourself flowers instead of crisps and chocolates.
And feel inspired every time you look at your beautiful blooms.
From there you can build your confidence and start doing more things you usually wouldn’t dream of doing.
Like saddling up riding a horse and bloody well loving it!
Nothing comes to those that wait.
Science is clear if you want something to happen you have to take some kind of action to initiate that change.
Newton’s first law of motion explains it like this, a body at rest will remain at rest unless an outside force acts on it and a body in motion will remain in motion unless acted upon by an outside force.
So if you’re stationary that is where you can expect to be tomorrow, next year, and next decade but once you are moving you’re on your way, and momentum will build and it gets easier but that’s a science lesson for another day.
Sadly you haven’t learned to use the skills to draw the line when people disappoint you. You don’t speak up for yourself because that’s way too uncomfortable for you.
When you accept things but they don’t really align with your values but you’re too afraid to challenge someone, that actually is way too uncomfortable.
Letting others control your life because you feel too afraid to say no and put a stop to it because off course that will make you feel extremely uncomfortable.
These are all unhealthy boundaries and yes it’ll be hard for you to deal with them but imagine how free you’ll be once you’ve waded through all of that discomfort and come out the other side!
If you want a surefire way off the invite list of your friends or colleagues it’s being known for, saying no to people will soon tire of hearing your excuses for why you can’t accept their invite and they’ll just stop inviting you along to things.
We’re not forcing you to go full yes on life but at least start by accepting invites and see where they lead.
There’s no reward for staying at a mundane party the longest, nor is there some kind of badge of honor for sticking it out in a dead-end job just to please your boss.
The truth is you’re just afraid of the unknown.
However, the result of being bored to tears is often a feeling of discontentment with your own life and eventually depression.
You have one life and it’s not possible to live it for anyone else.
Despite your best efforts at sacrificing your life for your partner, kids boss or parents, or even a cause you believe in, you won’t be effective if this is not what you love and what inspires and challenges you.
So, if you’re in a rut, how do you leave it behind?

By now you’re probably reading because you acknowledge that you’re in a funk, stuck in a rut, or running a hamster wheel of repetition. So it’s time to take action and start a new chapter.
Don’t worry this doesn’t have to be some kind of flying leap off an edge into unchartered territory.
Take some small but deliberate steps to get yourself moving away from the cocoon of comfort.
An easy way to break out of the mold is to strike up a new friendship with people who have no preconceived ideas about you.
It allows you the confidence to reinvent yourself without having to explain that you’re trying something new before you’re ready to. And if you need to meet some more inspiring friends then start by joining a club, change gyms or join a local meetup group that interests you.
One small conversation leads to an invite leads to an adventure and before you know it you have a lifelong friendship.
Don’t hang in uninspired places or comfortable places looking for people to go on a journey with.
Take someone who’s exciting equally open to new opportunities and ready for action.
