Our comfort zones creep up on us and we don’t really even notice getting stuck in them. We get up each day and do what we do because that’s what we do.

The problem with comfort zones is that we get so used to them that we can forget that we can do things differently. And unless we do something differently things will remain the same as they are.

But getting out of your comfort zone can be scary, the very thought of doing something differently can be overwhelming, making us stay safely in our comfort zone.

To get out of your comfort zone demands courage, start small if it seems to hard, change just one small thing, or do one thing you have never done before because every time you do, it will empower you to make more changes and do more things you have never done before.

Here are 25 quotes that will inspire you to Get Out of Your Comfort Zone and start living the life you want.
