Getting out of comfort zone for a successful career

I have been thinking about this for the past few weeks. Every individual will have some personal preferences for their life. They would like to live a life that is comfortable for them. Some people take enough effort to make their life sophisticated and for some people, it happens to be like that. In this article, I would like to talk about people who work really hard to lead a sophisticated life. The first thing that comes to my mind when I think about such people is that they didn’t fear to get out of their comfort zone.

We all have this comfort zone in our life. We wish to always stay in the comfort zone wherever we go and whatever we do. This is a common human tendency. The individuals who broke that barrier and came out of their comfort zone became very successful in their life. This is not going to be a piece of advice from me because I myself sit comfortably in my comfort zone. But I have also been thinking about getting out of my comfort zone.


Some of my friends have told me that sitting inside the comfort zone is something like sitting inside the cage. We might fear about the world until we get out of it. But once we get out of our comfort zone and explore this world, the world will look beautiful in front of us and we will also be able to see the world from a different perspective. The opportunities that we might have currently in our career path can be limited now. Once we start exploring the bigger world, we might end up having many options and we can define our career path.

It is quite common that everyone will have the fear that “What if things go wrong?”. It is true that things can go wrong if we are not lucky but even in that case our skills will not let us down. That is the reason why we have to keep our skills intact. Even if one opportunity fades away, there will always be another opportunity in front of our eyes that can take us towards the success path. Confidence is very important along with the skill set. Some people might have the right skill set but they will not be having enough confidence to project it when there is an opportunity.


Before coming out of the comfort zone, there is yet another thing that we have to check which is our security. Just for the sake of coming out of the comfort zone, we shouldn’t lose our current career path with overconfidence. There should be a balance in both. When we take our leg from one stone, we have to make sure that we have another leg intact on the other stone. If the other leg is not in the right place, we might fall down. The comfortable placing of the other leg is the next thing but the basic thing would be to at least have a stone to keep our leg before we take another leg.
