    Even in this modern advanced technologically developed world there are people who are reluctant to step out of their comfort zone. Even a place thousands of miles away could be reached by a click from our handheld smart phone. We can have a video talk with our near and dear ones. People might ask,” What if something untoward happens? Will they be able to reach us?”

    People usually fall into a place where they stagnate called “Comfort Zone” and avoid undertaking anything new. Most people do not like the unusual.

    Why? Because fear, uncertainty and the unknown take over in their minds.

    In trying new things, people are afraid of their actual beliefs clashing with the new or the unknown, putting them into uneasy situations and over things they have no control over.

    But if they did take a step forward by leaving their comfort zone, people would get a overall self-improvement if they were, for example, to visit another country, learn a new ability, begin a new sport, take a crack and taste other foods, or anything that could challenge their mind.

    By taking such small risks in a measured fashion, and in taking a little challenge or two in things they generally wouldn't try or do, they would recognize that it might bring out their creativity and get a kick out of doing it.

    Those who do not step out of their comfort zone do not realize what they miss in life.

    Not sure I agree with you. To each his own, whatever seems like a great experience to you might not be worth the risk to others. It's just a matter of perception.

    Yes, I agree with you. "Stepping out of one's comfort zone" is one of the great clichés of our time. Fear is a natural and healthy response to the unknown.

    I agree with Sandycandy. This is totally dependent on the individuals and cannot be generalized.Of course, if some one wants to take a risk or move out of their comfort zone then we shouldn't be stopping them. At the same time you cannot ask the other person to move out of his comfort zone when they are not willing to.
    Everybody has the freedom to live their life as they wish.

    Every person has a reason for being who they are. Individual attitude also plays a role. I only think time and circumstances would make a person choose to go out of comfort zone.

    Thanks for posting your first fb.

    There is always an exception to any rule. There are many bold people who are risk takers and many who are afraid to take any risk.

    Many old timers are afraid to take risk and tread on unknown path and prefer the path shown by their predecessors.

    A wise choice. We should follow the ways of our ancestors as long as they work.

    As there are two sides to a coin there are two types of people in the world. Mostly youngsters are risk takers. Even among youngsters there are some who are afraid to take risk.

    Of course each one has their freewill and they can use it according to their perception.

    Individual attitude of a person is the main thing in determining risk taking. As you have said time and circumstances also depends on risk taking.
