“Sometimes we have to step out of our comfort zones. We have to break the rules. And we have to discover the sensuality of fear. We need to face it, challenge it, dance with it.” ― Kyra Davis
We tend to avoid people and circumstances out of our comfort and belief zone. We feel that it will waste our time and energy to deal with people with different natures and personalities like ours.
We like to spend time with people that have the same points of view as us. They make us feel comfortable and confident. They make us feel safe and cared for.
Our worldviews, our belief systems, our values are held intact.
However, they don’t make us grow. They simply validate our existing collection of beliefs.
If you truly want to grow, surround yourself with people who are totally unlike you, looking at whom you feel, “Inke saath toh time spend nahi ho paayega bhai. Yeh kaise aa gaye yaha?”
Those are the people you must spend your time with to explore new aspects and experiences of life.
The next time you see someone and your response is, “They’re not my types,” ask yourself, “What is it that they know that I don’t?”
And then spend your time knowing them, to understand what they know and what you don’t know. You’ll know more about the world than you did before.
Typecasting stops your inner and outer growth. Step out of your comfort and belief zone!
“Sometimes it is good to be in uncomfortable situations because it is in finding our way out of such difficulties that we learn valuable lessons.” ― Idowu Koyenikan
