Comfort Is The Devils lettuce!

“When you’re comfortable, and life is behaving in ways that are preferable to you, your brain can release chemicals like dopamine and serotonin, which lead to feelings and sensations that are perceived as good,” Scott Trettenero The Comfort Zone and Personal Growth

It’s killing you slowly . And it’s often untraceable .

It’s your comfort zone — and stepping outside of it is key to discovering your passion, accomplishing your goals, and finding happiness .

But it’s not so bad, right? I mean, you’re comfortable, so you must be happy?

If only it worked out that way. Unfortunately, the longer you stay within your comfort zone, the less happy you tend to be.

Without the proper motivation, we’re willing to stay in a situation that doesn’t make us completely happy , for fear that the discomfort we’ll feel by stepping outside of our current circumstances will be greater than the discontent we feel now, however unfulfilled we are.

But by not stepping outside of your comfort zone, you’re costing yourself three of the greatest gifts life has to offer.

One can choose to go back toward safety or forward toward growth. Growth must be chosen again and again; fear must be overcome again and again.

Grow or perish

Grow or perish

In life, you’re either growing or dying. That might seem a bit exaggerated — and it is — but it’s not meant to be taken literally.

The primary ingredient for a happy life very well may be progress, as recent positive psychology studies have pointed towards. Shawn Achor, positive psychologist and author of The Happiness Advantage , refers to happiness as “the joy you feel moving towards your potential.”

Growth is about progress .

Progress is about movement .

The trick is, to making it a habit of stepping outside of yourself and growing consistently.

Try these 3 basic steps for developing the strength to step outside of your comfort zone –habitually:

  1. Make a procrastination list: Make a list of tasks you’ve been procrastinating on.
  2. Do one (or more) of the smallest items on your list: If you’re afraid of calling someone and telling them how you feel. Make the smallest simplest task easy. 
  3. Keep taking steps: By doing that simple task, and stepping outside your comfort zone ever so slightly, you gain energy and confidence.

Best app ever! You heard it right. This app has helped me get back on my quest to get things done while equipping myself with knowledge everyday.

Ashley Anthony

This app is LOADED with RELEVANT, HELPFUL, AND EDUCATIONAL material. It is creatively intellectual, yet minimal enough to not overstimulate and create a learning block. I am exceptionally impressed with this app!

Sean Green

Great interesting short snippets of informative articles. Highly recommended to anyone who loves information and lacks patience.

Laetitia Berton

I have only been using it for a few days now, but I have found answers to questions I had never consciously formulated, or to problems I face everyday at work or at home. I wish I had found this earlier, highly recommended!

Jamyson Haug

Great for quick bits of information and interesting ideas around whatever topics you are interested in. Visually, it looks great as well.

Giovanna Scalzone
