Get out of your comfort zone!

As we get older, we become creatures of habit, content to stick with the familiar. Some people are so comfortable with their lives that they even start to fear change – be it new technologies, new fashions or new people.

A challenging but ultimately satsifying way to extend your emotional development is to push yourself out of your comfort zone. Take that computer course if you’re worried about being left behind in the dark age. Leap into a career change if you’re bored in your current role. Take a trip to a foreign country with a culture completely different to your own.

Remember, what doesn’t kill you only makes you stronger, and afterwards, you can bask in the glow of your achievement.
