Not many people like going out of their comfort zones, it makes them feel awkward or uncomfortable.

The thing is, going outside your comfort zone can make you realize talents you never knew you had.

People, in general, like keeping things the same.

But many people go through changes, and that’s OK. It’s a normal occurrence.

Change can be an excellent motivator. It can shape people into who they are.

What would life be without change? It would be boring and uneventful.

We should do the things that scare us, like going up and meeting new people or trying a new sport.

It doesn’t matter if you aren’t good at something, still try it. You can do whatever you want and be whoever you want.

Going outside of your comfort zone can be scary at first, but once you do you will be happy. Once you come out of your shell you will feel free.

We should take risks because life needs adventure.

There are many people who decided to make a change and step out of their comfort zones, which eventually paid off.

For example, Barack Obama, even though a minority, became president, Ellen DeGeneres, as lesbian, became a TV star, and Eminem struggled with bullying as a child to become a famous rapper.

If all these people didn’t step out of their comfort zones, then they wouldn’t have gotten to where they are today.

When we go outside of our comfort zones, it helps us live more.

If you’re scared to try new things then you’ll never know what’s at the end of the rainbow.

What I’m saying is, until you try new things, you won’t know what you’re missing out on.

I try to do things that normally I would never do.

I do things like going up to new people and starting up conversations, trying new foods, reading in front of my class, or trying sports I’ve never done before.

These may be little fears I’ve had, but overcoming them has made me feel so much better. I feel like I can be more open with myself and with others.

We need to challenge ourselves to open up and do things that will help us grow as people. Do the things that are hard for you. Do the things that you never thought you were capable of. Most of all, do the things that intimidate you.

Doing these things will make you realize you’re capable of doing so much in this world.

When you feel good about yourself, it helps you be a whole new you that you never knew you could be.

    I enjoyed your article. It made me think of my comfort zone. When I was younger, I was quite adventurous. Now that I’m older and on disability, I’m scared to do anything new. After reading this, I think that I will start out slow trying some new things.
