It can be very easy to play it safe. However, to experience personal growth, it can sometimes be necessary to do things that might be uncomfortable. Sometimes you need to step outside your comfort zone.
Life is about trying to make things easier for yourself. You try to have enough food so that you don’t go hungry. You heat your home so that you don’t get too cold. You try to make enough money so you can afford the things you like.
And yet, if everything in life revolves around ease or comfort, you won’t reach your full potential and you won’t experience personal growth or fulfillment.
As a result, you need to purposefully include some discomfort, to stretch yourself and try something that you don’t know how to do. Finding an appropriate balance can be difficult, but is ultimately rewarding.
