Comfort Zone

Most of us are familiar with the concept of a comfort zone. This is the zone where we feel safe and secure, doing things that we know well and that require little effort. Our comfort zone can be a great place to stay, but it can also prevent us from trying new things and expanding our horizons.


Fear Zone

The fear zone is the opposite of the comfort zone. This is the place where we feel scared or uncertain, facing challenges that are outside of our usual experience. Stepping into the fear zone can be daunting, but it can also lead to growth and learning because if you’re able to push yourself past the fear zone, that’s where the magic starts to happen.


Learning Zone

The learning zone is somewhere between the comfort zone and the fear zone. Here, we are pushing ourselves to try new things, and may feel inadequate or uncomfortable. This is often the best place to be when trying to learn something new or develop a new skill. You just have to be mindful that it’s okay to feel fear and uncertainty when you’re learning something new. In fact, these feelings can be your internal signal that you’re on the path of growth.


Growth Zone

Once you’re able to push yourself to stay in the learning zone for prolonged periods of time, you start to reach into the growth zone. This is where your fears will abide and you feel like you have clear vision forward. What seemed impossible before will now seem very doable.
