What makes you feel comfortable is what keeps you stuck

Feeling comfortable does not lead to growth.

But why do most people stay in their comfort zone?
Are your own expectations holding you back?

In this episode, I am talking about the reasons why people stay in their comfort zones and always choose the “safe side”. And why choosing this hinders you from your personal and career growth.

I also talk about the following eye-opening points:

  1. Reasons for staying comfortable
    • Fear of rejection
    • Fear of failure
    • Fear of not meeting expectations
    • Unfair comparison to others
    • Not being ready
    • Being too busy
    • Not important
  2. Set systems to reach your goals
  3. You can reach incredible goals
  4. Do something different
  5. Grow personally
  6. Vulnerability
  7. Innovation
