Magic happens outside your comfort zone
Of course it does! People are afraid of everything. They don’t know why they are afraid but they know that they are. They gather things, people, relationships, and choose events to attend, just to be on the safe side and feel comfortable.
Some do not even know what “comfort zone” is and struggle to describe it. Once they are forcefully removed from a stagnant path and known choices, they enjoy new and unknown things and wonder where they have been their entire life. But even then, majority goes back to their old environment.
Once you face the fear, it disappears as mystery behind THE Unknown becomes Known and Familiar.
If you are unhappy, but choose to be where you are, choose same people around you, choose not to try that one thing you always wished you had the guts to do, magic will not happen.
Magic happens when you decide to go against your own way. Magic happens when you turn your back towards the old way and face the new way.
