Learn more about who you are
Pushing yourself out of your comfort zone can create an opportunity for you to learn about yourself and who you are beyond what you thought that you were capable of. Taking risks will help you to learn more about what you are passionate about and what doesn’t bring fulfillment to your life. This can lead to a higher EQ because you take the time to understand why things in your life bring you joy and teach you more about who you truly are.
If you are constantly in a state of comfort, you will lack the uncertainty that will challenge you and encourage growth in your life. The unpredictable encourages you to reach new highs of your EQ as it compels you to handle your uncomfortable emotions like stress and fear. Learning new things will help you build confidence along with your new skills.
Expand your creativity
Challenging your brain to be in a more creative space can lead to increases in your sense of fulfillment by leading to new hobbies that you are passionate about allowing you to lead a life that is enjoyable, interesting, and mentally stimulating. Even if you aren’t in a typical creative space, new or uncomfortable situations will push you to be more creative as you find where you fit.
Allowing yourself to be frequently pushed out of your comfort zone gives you the sense that you can take on anything. This creates so many opportunities for you that you may not have otherwise had because of fear or a sense of inadequacy. Confidence can be vital in career growth, development, self-love, and so much more.
Power in Challenges
Challenges and hardships have important roles in your life, it is important to have the ability and confidence to overcome them. Having the emotional capacity to deal with the unexpected can give you the confidence to live your life without major fears that may hold you back from living to the fullest.
