"The real voyage of discovery consists not in seeking new landscapes but in having new eyes." - Marcel Proust

If you want to continue to mature, develop, and maintain your health as you get older, you have no choice but to force yourself out of the confines of your comfort zone. The feeling of being alive and full of new energy is the reward you get for stepping outside of your comfort zone. You will learn things about yourself that you never really knew before after overcoming a challenge. The more you challenge yourself, the more confident and capable you will feel in new situations.

The old adage "Use it or lose it" used to be sufficient, but recent studies have shown that in order to delay or prevent the onset of age-related diseases, we need to keep our brains and bodies active and learn new things on a consistent basis. When you push yourself outside of your comfort zone, you give yourself the opportunity to live a longer, healthier, and more fulfilling life overall.

However, there are a lot of people who will do anything in order to keep living in the same familiar environment. In point of fact, it is estimated that many people never travel more than fifty miles from the location where they were born, and fewer than twenty-five percent of people in the United States possess a passport. Traveling is just one of many activities that can help you step outside of your comfort zone. It is not so much what you do to better yourself as it is the fact that you actually do something to improve yourself. Disruptable: Break Away from Ordinary by Allan Young is a fantastic book that will help you become a better version of yourself by providing you with real-world examples and actionable insights. Highly recommended and a well-deserved five stars from me.
