Sometimes We don’t have courage to step out our comfort zone. We don’t have courage to discard our fear. Fear always haunting us to see another world. What made special about comfort zone that you don’t want to step outside? It’s just like ‘a palace’ where everything about happiness and gladness always be brought out there. You know the story about the palace with the king and the queen? I heard the story about the palace where everything runs perfectly and people living well in prosperity. So the palace and the people who living there live in harmony and happiness. That’s the reality in today’s life where people who have already lived in harmony and happiness sometimes didn’t have courage to step outside their “home” and facing the new challenges.
I still remember when my first time traveling abroad to Malaysia. I had feeling fear to face with immigration staff in Kuala Lumpur International Airport. I already have prepared few questions that maybe would be asked from the staff. But “stamp”…. suddenly my passport was stamped and welcome to the new world. All my doubts, worries, and fears were disappeared. It was just beginning and long journey has waited for me to travel. At that moment, I felt that I have already win and walked one step ahead to leaving my comfort zone.
Sometimes We don’t want to step out our comfort zone because we don’t want to meet with ‘changing’. Changing is very challenging. Imagine that all the things around us were settle well then suddenly we must meet with uncertainty named changing. We need more time to adapt with new situation which is bad or good, we don’t even know. One question that stuck in my mind, why we have discouraged to step out the comfort zone and meet with changing? In my point of view the answer is we don’t have power to let go all of the happiness and comfort that we have sincerely. Sincerely is the key answer to all of our doubts and fears.
The point I said this story is just to remind us that world has many things to discover. World has many things that offered us experiences to upgrade our self to be better person. Sometimes we don’t have courage to step out our home and facing the world. It’s alright but we must think more deeply that life always runs forward and we must pursue our self to step closer behind them or even equal. Don’t let our self drop far behind them. I believe that courage will bring out the good result that maybe we never expected before. So courage to step out our comfort zone and sincerely to let go them are the answer to facing the challenges of the world.
