If there is one thing I’ve learnt is that you cannot achieve any of your goals or dreams if you don’t get out of your comfort zone. Obviously it’s not an easy process and can be quite daunting & intimidating at first but you’ll never be able to reach your full potential while being stuck in the same place. I’ll be the first person to say not to do something if you feel uncomfortable and the same applies in this case as well.
There is a huge different between doing something to get out of your comfort zone and doing something that makes you uncomfortable. Remember that one will bring you fulfilment and joy whilst the other won’t, so trust your gut instinct! In today’s post, I’ll be sharing with you 5 tips to get out of your comfort zone. As always, if you are interested – keep on reading!
S’il y a une chose que j’ai apprise, c’est que vous ne pouvez atteindre aucun de vos objectifs ou rêves si vous ne sortez pas de votre zone de confort. Évidemment, ce n’est pas un processus facile et peut être assez intimidant au début, mais vous ne pourrez jamais atteindre votre plein potentiel tout en étant coincé au même endroit. Je serai la première personne à dire de ne pas faire quelque chose si vous vous sentez mal à l’aise et il en va de même dans ce cas également.
Il y a une énorme différence entre faire quelque chose pour sortir de votre zone de confort et faire quelque chose qui vous met mal à l’aise. N’oubliez pas que l’un vous apportera satisfaction et joie tandis que l’autre ne le fera pas – alors faites confiance à votre instinct! Dans le post d’aujourd’hui, je vais partager avec vous 5 conseils pour sortir de votre zone de confort. Comme toujours, si vous êtes intéressé, continuez à lire!

GET NEW OPPORTUNITIES
I think the number one thing you should remember that by getting out of your comfort zone, you’ll be able to bring new changes in your life such as getting new opportunities. When you are stuck in a routine, it won’t allow you to explore and find other paths in life.
Je pense que la première chose à retenir est qu’en sortant de votre zone de confort, vous serez en mesure d’apporter de nouveaux changements dans votre vie tels que de nouvelles opportunités. Lorsque vous êtes coincé dans une routine, cela ne vous permettra pas d’explorer et de trouver d’autres chemins dans la vie.

HAVE NO REGRETS
The biggest reason why some people don’t want to get out of their comfort zone is because they are afraid. But you know what’s scarier than that, it’s living your life regretting that you didn’t do something. When you miss your chance, there isn’t any certainty that you will receive the same opportunity again.
La principale raison pour laquelle certaines personnes ne veulent pas sortir de leur zone de confort est qu’elles ont peur. Mais vous savez ce qui est plus effrayant que ça, c’est de vivre votre vie en regrettant de n’avoir rien fait. Lorsque vous manquez votre chance, rien ne garantit que vous recevrez à nouveau la même opportunité.

OVERCOME YOUR FEARS
You can look getting out of your comfort zone as overcoming your fears as well. Most of the times when we have to get out of our comfort zone, we feel anxiety and fear but you have to get out of that place in order to conquer those fears in the first place.
Vous pouvez également penser à sortir de votre zone de confort pour surmonter vos peurs. La plupart du temps, lorsque nous devons sortir de notre zone de confort, nous ressentons de l’anxiété et de la peur, mais vous devez sortir de cet endroit afin de vaincre ces peurs en premier lieu.

I think something we don’t realise is the fact by getting out of our comfort zone, we can help others do the same as well. You don’t need to have a platform, blog or social media. Even sharing with your loved ones your experience might help them get out of their comfort zone.
Je pense que quelque chose que nous ne réalisons pas est le fait qu’en sortant de notre zone de confort, nous pouvons aussi aider les autres à faire de même. Vous n’avez pas besoin d’avoir une plateforme, un blog ou des médias sociaux. Même partager avec vos proches votre expérience pourrait les aider à sortir de leur zone de confort.

GROW AS A PERSON
Before you start to over-worry about what’s going to happen, think about the results. I truly believe that you will grow as a person and learn new things about yourself when you get out of your comfort zone. This will teach you lessons and you will even gain experiences.
Avant de vous inquiéter de ce qui va se passer, réfléchissez aux résultats. Je crois vraiment que vous grandirez en tant que personne et apprendrez de nouvelles choses sur vous-même lorsque vous sortirez de votre zone de confort. Cela vous apprendra des leçons et vous gagnerez même des expériences.
THANK YOU SO MUCH FOR READING!
Short and sweet post but I love it! I think you made a really good point at the beginning of your post about the difference between getting out of your comfort zone and doing something that makes you feel uncomfortable.
Last year I decided to put my priorities straight and stop doing things that just don’t make me happy. I’ve also stopped trying to please everyone, especially people who wouldn’t care back. I have a few things I really want to achieve this year and sometimes it’s a daunting thought but somehow I feel a bit closer to it cos I’ve persevered and have been talking to close friends who have been encouraging everyday. 🙂
Thank you hun! I stopped trying to please everyone last year. I guess since it’s something I’ve been doing all my life, it became tiring and emotionally draining at one point. I wasn’t happy with myself and I felt I was living my life for others.
I’m so happy to hear that you have a great support system. It’s always nice when your close friends or loved ones are encouraging you. I hope you achieve any goals you planned this year 👊🏼
Thanks 😊! I was the same too – doing things that made others happy but it wasn’t something that was for my gain. There was no self fulfilment in it and the worse is when they do not appreciate your efforts in putting them as a priority. All this comes with age and experience though.
I hope you achieve all your goals too!
Absolutely! Thank you my lovely ☺️
I like how you point out that we also inspire others when we’re outside our comfort zone pursuing our dreams. Olé! Rebecca
Thank you Rebecca! ☺️
You shared some valid points in your post.
I’m onboard for change of routine with no regrets.
I made the decision to do what’s best for ‘me’ and I don’t feel that’s selfish.
I enjoy reading your blog posts especially since you write in both my first and second languages.
Another excellent and informative read – great work!!
Thank you so much love! ❤️
This is a great reminder. If you want to achieve something greater, you have to move closer to your goal…and away from comfort. You never hear much about comfortable achievements.
Thank you David! So true!
This really made me smile as I’ve been getting out of my comfort zone a lot recently but not really stopping to think into the deeper benefits of it, I’ll be sure to keep this all in mind and it will motivate me to keep it up. Great post! 😄❤️
Aww I’m so happy to hear that! Thank you lovely 😘❤️
I can’t tell you how timely this post is. I’m so stuck in routine and recently my boyfriend was injured at work. He will be home for quite some time and I seem to be fighting the routine change to the point that I have so much anxiety. You’ve opened my eyes. I need to stop fighting old routines and make new ones with him. It’s all going to be ok. Thank you for helping me with this today.
Oh no! I hope your boyfriend is okay now. I’m so glad to hear that ❤️ I know it’s easier said than done but don’t worry, everything will be okay. You are very welcome love xx
Well written! Yes, stepping out of comfort zone can be daunting, but like you know, it’s easy for one to deviate from something that is not comfortable to the body.
We don’t know comfort zone has it’s limitations, but when you step out of it, it’s limitations becomes it’s benefits.
Thank you hun! ❤️
Very helpful tips, thanks! I like the distinction you made between getting out of your comfort zone versus being uncomfortable.
So glad you found them helpful! Thank you sweet 💗
These are such good tips!! This year I am planning on really trying my hardest to do things I normally wouldn’t and take up as many new opportunities as I can, I agree that if you don’t take up these chances you will regret it in the future!
Thank you so much my love! ❤️
Great tips and well written girl 🙂
Thank you hun! ❤️
Such an inspiring post, thanks for sharing! 😊 Whenever I have a new opportunity, I try to tell myself, as much as I can that “if the only reason I don’t want to do it is fear, then I have to do it” 😄
Thank you so much babe! ❤️
You’ve got a nice blog ☘️☘️☘️ Really nice ❤️😊😊
Thank you! ❤️
You are welcome. I just followed 🌺
It’s wonderful that you’re both encouraging us to think big an expand ourselves, but not too big: we don’t have to change the world all at once, we can make a small difference in the lives of our loved ones today. Thank you!
Aww thank you so much! ❤️
Thank you so much! I found this in Reader and needed to read. Like so many of the commenters above, I too am stuck in a routine and it’s getting pretty monotonous.
I’ve promised myself to quit my job and work on my blog full time. I just want to take advantage of my vacation days first. And I want to save a little more. My goal is October.
This is a great post. Reading it gets me excited about the near future! Again, thank you!
My pleasure! Thank you so much ❤️
You’re very welcome! 🙂
Nicely written. I was talking with a friend yesterday & we were saying we should be proud of ourselves for expanding out comfort zones. They either shrink or expand. I don’t think they stay static.
Thank you so much! ☺️
