22 Motivational Quotes To Break You Out Of Your Comfort Zone

< ?xml encoding="utf8mb4" ?>

A ship is always safe at the shore — but that is not what it is built for.

No one wants to live a basic life, but it can be hard to figure out how to step out of your comfort zone. We’re constantly on a search for happiness and we all want to lead an exciting and fulfilling life, but to make these dreams a reality we have to be proactive and search for new experiences and new opportunities.

It’s scary to put ourselves out there.

But without taking chances or analyzing every little detail that could possibly go wrong, we most likely won’t achieve the life we’re after.

What’s holding you back is this tiny thing called the known. This is called your comfort zone. A comfort zone is where we are when we feel safe, at ease, and stress-free. Sounds pretty nice and cozy, right?

So, why would any one ever want to step outside of it? Well, nothing groundbreaking ever really happens in your comfort zone.

For a select few, that may be fine. But I know that most people are after adventure, a happily ever after, and experiences they will be able to look back on and say, “I can’t believe I did that, but I’m so glad I did.”

So, it’s about time we leave that zone of protection and familiarity. 

Leaving your comfort zone is so rewarding. What are some of the things we chase after when we decide to be brave and leave our comfort zone? Some chase after a promotion or a better job. A few leave their job to start at something new that will make them happier than they’ve ever been.

Some people will pack up their belongings, wave goodbye, and move to another state or country. Others might finally talk to the person they’ve been eyeing for a while now or do something radical — jump out of a plane (attached to a parachute of course).

And what are the outcomes of these? Great stories to tell, a better life, a happier individual.

So with all these great possibilities, why do choose to not take a step outside of what they’re comfortable with?

Well, because they can fail. But the important thing about failure is it’s only a possibility, not a guaranteed outcome. And failure is not the final outcome, it’s a chance to start again and learn.…

15 Inspiring Anthony Bourdain Quotes on Life and Adventure

< ?xml encoding="utf8mb4" ?>

Celebrity chef and TV personality Anthony Bourdain took his cooking career to another level by becoming a bestselling author and a TV personality.

Sadly, on June 8, 2018, Bourdain was found dead of an apparent suicide in his hotel room in Strasbourg, France.

Born on June 25, 1956, Bourdain made a name for himself after The New Yorker published his article “Don’t Eat Before Reading This” in 1997. Ever since then, he has had a flourishing career hosting TV shows such as A Cook’s Tour– a show about Anthony’s exotic food experiences traveling around the world; and No Reservations, which explored similar themes.

His show Anthony Bourdain: Parts Unknown has won several Emmys. Bourdain also participated as a guest on Bravo’s Top Chef and as a main judge on Top Chef All-Stars.

He has written several books, including Kitchen Confidential: Adventures in the Culinary Underbelly, which was turned into a short-lived sitcom starring Bradley Cooper.

Bourdain’s love for traveling, good food and drinks made him a wonderful storyteller.

Here are 15 Anthony Bourdain quotes that will urge you to take that journey and live your life to the fullest.

Travel changes you. As you move through this life and this world you change things slightly, you leave marks behind, however small. And in return, life—and travel—leaves marks on you.

Open your mind, get up off the couch, move.

Your body is not a temple, it’s an amusement park. Enjoy the ride.

Good food is very often, even most often, simple food.

Maybe that’s enlightenment enough: to know that there is no final resting place of the mind; no moment of smug clarity. Perhaps wisdom…is realizing how small I am, and unwise, and how far I have yet to go.

The journey is part of the experience – an expression of the seriousness of one’s intent. One doesn’t take the A train to Mecca.

Things got broken. Things got lost. But I wouldn’t have missed it for the world.

That without experimentation, a willingness to ask questions and try new things, we shall surely become static, repetitive, moribund.

Luck is not a business model.

If you’re 22, physically fit, hungry to learn and be better, I urge you to travel – as far and as widely as possible.

Don’t lie about it. You made a mistake. Admit it and move on. Just don’t do it again. Ever.

Skills can …
