A Quote by unknown on experiences, comfort zone, world of possibilities, new, and grow

When one has dared new experiences - to go beyond their comfort zone - a brand new world of possibilities opens up, and one can't help but grow.

A Quote by Rob Brezsny on problems, comfort zone, and blessing

You will have a growing knack for gravitating toward wilder, wetter, more interesting problems. More and more, you will be drawn to the kind of gain that doesn't requite pain.  You'll be so alive and awake that you’ll cheerfully push yourself out of your comfort zone in the direction of your personal frontier well before you’re forced to do so by divine kicks in the ass.

A Quote by Albert Einstein on success, comfort zone, and self development


"It's not that I'm so smart, it's just that I stay with problems longer."

- Albert Einstein

So, as we need to stay with a problem (or Goal) long enough to turn it in to Successful Result, might as well choose a Big one that's worth staying with.

Those who staying with the right problem,(eg. learn a new skill, etc.), long enough will be rewarded.

Those who staying with the wrong reward,(eg. stay in comfort zone, etc.), long enough will get problem.

Albert Einstein (1879 - 1955)

A Quote by Denis Waitley on dream, comfort zone, and creative vision

A dream is your creative vision for your life in the future. You must break out of your current comfort zone and become comfortable with the unfamiliar and the unknown.

A Quote by unknown on jim paredes and comfort zone

All growth happens outside our comfort zone into the unknown. Everything we know now used to be unknown to us. Every time we fear the unknown just remember that the unknown is just another aspect of us which we haven't met.

A Quote by Vidyadhara Chogyam Trungpa Rinpoche on buddhism, fear, change, and comfort zone

When we hide from the world in this way, we feel secure. We may think we have quieted our fear, but we are actually making ourselves numb with fear. We surround ourselves with our own familiar thoughts, so that nothing sharp or painful can touch us.

When we are constantly recreating our basic patterns of behavior and thought, we never have to leap into fresh air or onto fresh grass. Instead, we wrap ourselves in our own dark environment, where our only companion is the smell of our own sweat. In the cocoon, there is no dance, no walking or breathing. It is comfortable and sleepy, an intense and very familiar home.

In the cocoon, there is no idea of light at all, until we experience some longing for openness, some longing for something other than the smell of our own sweat. When we examine that comfortable darkness - look at it, smell it, feel it - we find it is claustrophobic.

So the first impulse that draws us away from the darkness of the cocoon towards the light is a longing for ventilation. As soon as we begin to sense of the possibility of fresh air, we realize that our arms and legs are being restricted. We want to stretch out and walk, dance, even jump. We realize that there is an alternative to our cocoon: we discover that we could be free from that trap. With that longing for fresh air, for a breeze of delight, we open our eyes. To our surprise, we begin to see the light, even though it may be hazy at first. The tearing of the cocoon takes place at that point.

Then, we realize that the degraded cocoon we have been hiding in is revolting, and we want to turn up the lights as far as we can. In fact, we are not turning up the lights, but we are simply opening our eyes wider. We catch a certain kind of fever.

But again and again, we should reflect back to the darkness of the cocoon. In order to inspire ourselves forward, we must look back to see the contrast with the place we came from. You see, we cannot reject the world of the cocoon - which out which we may create a new cocoon. When we see the suffering that occured in the old cocoon, that inspires us to go forward in our journey of warriorship. It is a journey that is unfolding within us.
