Dear Gurudev, can you tell us why it’s good to come out of the comfort zone in which we feel safe and secure, and do things that we don’t like doing, or which we don’t feel comfortable doing.

Sri Sri Ravi Shankar:

Coming out of your comfort zone time and again will expand your ability and your strength; you become stronger.

You are so caught up in your comfort zone. That is the cause of your fear, your anxiety, and your bondage. Your comfort zone is your bondage.

Sometimes when you wake up and say, ‘I am going to get out of this’, it brings that strength back to you.
