When this happens, your personality stops developing and you become incredibly predictable as a person.
Your emotions own you, rather than you owning your emotions.
In that case, you’ve become incredibly limited because of your past.
If you’ve had a hard experience in your past where something negative happened, or where you failed miserably, you might never step far outside your comfort zone again.
This will take courage.
You have to move forward.
You can’t be frozen to your past.
You must be bold in your action.
As Oliver Wendell Holmes, Jr. said, “A mind that is stretched by a new experience can never go back to its old dimensions.”
As you step outside of your comfort zone, you will experience the stress-response — fight, flee or freeze. Being out of the comfort zone is a beautiful experience because it is entirely physical and emotional.
