Now see common people example. As a working people every day go to office do work, wait for office timing to end and come home. Eat and sleep. This is comfort zone if anyone says to us that does different things example change your daily routine. Walk from the different street but no we are lazy to do that. Even if we are not happy with our job but still continue because of comfort zone we are comfortable with our friend circle & enemy circle too and scare that new job will be challenging and we are in comfort level in current work though we hate that work but due to comfort zone that become our habit which we don’t want to leave. Can’t live with it but can’t leave it too. They know they are not growing they hate their work no financial growth and no career growth still don’t want to leave that job because of their comfort zone
You will experience many incidences like this in your day to day life; with yourself or your friends, your family or at your office.
As Albert Einstein said “a person is mad when he does the same work every day … but still expects the result to be different.”

Some people are successful in their comfort zone because they are in their comfort but they do things differently and try new thing staying within their comfort zone. But many people do things same way and expect different result. Mukesh Ambani do business but still he tried new things current example is Jio. As office example, you go to the office every day and do same work and expect to grow in your career life and financial life which is also like a rat race where you are running but at the same place.
As beautifully said by Shah Rukh Khan’s character Jehangir Khan in Dear Zindagi movie “Sometimes we choose a difficult path only because we feel that to attain important things we need to choose a difficult path we think that it’s important to punish ourselves but why can’t we choose a simple path what’s wrong with that especially when we are not ready to face that difficult path”
Out of comfort zone always doesn’t mean that you will be successful same as in comfort zone always doesn’t mean that you will be a failure.
So whenever you try to think that you should come out from your comfort zone first think that you are failing because of comfort zone or you are doing right things the wrong way.
Coming out of comfort zone is always doesn’t mean that you should leave what you are doing and change your route but do improvise in your work your way to a different and positive result.
