4 Reasons Your Comfort Zone Is Where Your Dreams Are not Possible to Thrive

Your dreams may not have a life of their own, but they do live within you. It lives in your heart and your mind. If you’re committed to achieving your dreams, it will consume you. This is why it’s so important to not get too entrenched in your comfort zone – your dreams will literally die there.

1. Your dreams get demoted to the background

When you get caught up in your comfort zone, you get stuck in your daily routines. Following your dreams will require you to do tasks that will take you out of your comfort zone, that will literally tear your familiar routine to shreds.

Instead of following your dreams and risking failure, you’ll choose instead to remain in your comfort zone. You tell yourself you’ll work on your dreams later when you’ve got the time to explore and experiment.

In short, your dreams get demoted to the background. Chances are it may never resurface again.

2. Your knowledge becomes stagnant

Pursuing your goals mean you often need to learn new things and new skills. You can’t do this when you don’t want to risk leaving your comfort zone behind.

You make do with what you have. You don’t want to risk anything including learning the things that will ultimately get you out of your comfort zone!

3. You won’t know your true potential

Even if you’re extremely talented, if you don’t get out of your comfort zone, no one’s going to know just how good you are. You won’t know yourself. Why? Because you’ll be too afraid to even test the waters.

You’re too afraid of what other people think of you. You’re afraid of falling flat on your face. You’re afraid of standing out from the crowd.

So, you don’t do anything with your talent. You keep it to yourself. And that’s why no one – including you - will ever know your true potential.

4. Your dreams will become nothing but a distant memory

You get too caught up in your comfort zone, you don’t realize years and decades have passed by. By the time you finally find the courage to step out, it’s already too late.

You’re already too old and weak, and you’ve already lost your talents and your skills. When that time comes, you’ll only be left with regret. And the only thing you can do is to finally bury your dreams knowing you did nothing to achieve it.
