You can have a detailed blueprint to break your comfort zone. Start with the simplest step of new activity and gradually increase the level of the challenge. It can be like getting up early, running or working out, developing a reading habit, etc.

If you do this regularly, you will find that it has become a habit and you are ready to try something new. This gives you the confidence to learn new things and constantly expand your horizons.

Love Yourself & What You Do
According to research, it is found that successful people have a habit of loving themselves. While struggling for self-improvement, you can concentrate on three aspects to get you going, namely Food, Exercise, and Meditation.
Exercise releases endorphins that turn on the 'feel-good' switch in your brain and help you relax. Healthy food habits won’t get you into trouble. Meditation, on the other hand, strengthens your connection with your soul and helps you refine your focus. These can help you love yourself.
The next thing is to love what you do. If you don't love it and only do things for the sake of doing it, then you are only making yourself miserable.
When you do things with love, you can see the difference. It makes you look forward to something in life and enjoy it.
