When you stay inside your comfort zone, it gets smaller. Staying where you are most comfortable is an unhealthy habit. Like eating junk food or smoking tobacco, it feels nice in the moment and makes life harder in the long term.

When you forge out into new and uncomfortable territory, your comfort zone gets bigger. Like getting exercise, it’s hard in the moment and rewards you in the long term.

Doing the uncomfortable thing that makes everything better is an investment in your future.

Bite the bullet, step into the discomfort, and expand your horizons. Make the change, try the new thing, confront the issue, upset the apple cart. You’ll be glad you did.
