The Fallacy of Leaving Your Comfort Zone

There are a lot of sayings that tell us it’s better to leave our comfort zone.  They say it is necessary for growth and development.  It seems right especially with the “fact” that nothing is permanent except change. 

They have a lot of tips that they think can help you to leave your “box”.  Some of these are going on travels, meeting new set of people, breaking your routine; basically they try to tell you to try new or unusual things.

I accepted this advice until I realized that our lives’ purpose is null.  If we really do have just one shot in life, why should we go out of our comfort zones instead of enjoying it?
