Do you want to share any life experiences? For example, the turning point of your life/ stepping out of your compfort zone results in the better; planning to do this job and then do something totally different.
Thank you for any information that you might be able to share.
It is always frightening to go out of you comfort zone, because you never know what to expect. You may be not ready for the situations that can happen. You can't control this. But these very moments make you realise your true desires and goals. They refresh your brain and you find some hidden strengths in yourself that you could never imagine exist. You become another version of yourself.
Unfortunately, not always going out of the comfort zone means some kind of development to the best. Nevertheless, I believe, that taking all the risks into account every person should expecience that at least once just to find out who he is.
Staying in the comfort zone too long makes us complacent and antsy to do something challenging. Most people won't accept the call to step forward. This is our Hero's Journey. Most people choose to rent DVDs and watch an actor or actress portray these important decision making moments in their lives where they have to really stretch themselves as people to grow and mature. These growth spurts are necessary if we are to find satisfaction at the end of our lives.
Why do we go on scary rides at a fair? To get out of our comfort zone, right? It's the long terms ones that really count at the end of the day. :)
