The comfort one is a psychological state where a person is familiar with things around him, feels happy, peaceful and secure.  He thinks that he is in control of situations around him. In reality, these very same emotions curb his progress due to lack of positive stress and inspiration which are required for one's development.  This is why it is essential for a person to step out of his comfort zone.  A meaningful life begins only outside the comfort zone. (Akhand Jyoti Jan/Feb 2020)
