We all have so many different fears all manifesting in one way or another for many different reasons connected to all kinds of root causes, however it would seem from popular documentation that some fears are more common than others.

Below are all the different kind of fears and phobia’s that prevent many people from stepping outside their comfort zone and exploring everything that life has to offer. These are reported to be the top 100 most common fears globally recognized.

There may well be some you can or could have once identified with, but you can see from the list just how restricting, challenging and imposing some of these could be when it comes to living a truly free and fulfilled life. Alternatively, it can just be quite insightful from an awareness point of view to see what really challenges some people.

Please remember, although the following fears are labelled and generally defined, each is idiosyncratic to every individual, ranging from slight to severe with different extents and contexts attached to an individual cause.

Now just imagine if one of these has ever prevented you from living your life the way you really want to… never travelling to Australia for fear of spiders and snakes, never exploring the world for fear of flying or never seizing exciting opportunities for fear of failure and so on. Well now you can do all those things because you can find every resource needed in “Out of Your Comfort Zone” to overcome whatever holds you back and really break some boundaries to live a life free, fulfilled, and beyond limits.
