You reach the fear zone every time you get out of your comfort zone. That's why a lot of people don't want to leave it.

Breaking the fear zone will bring you to learning and growth.

Yes, that's clear. But why is the comfort zone INSIDE the fear zone (same with the rest of the zones). They shouldn't overlap in my interpretation.

I think that the circle describes the way you grow, and different states of your growth are described and marked differently.

So, there are no circles in circles. There is just one circle with different states.

Sorry, if I couldn't express my thoughts clearly in English :)

Though, I understand what you are saying.

No need to ever be sorry for trying in another language!

Thanks, now that explanation makes sense. 👍

Hi again Sebastian. I often use inversion and reversal of polarity as an analysis tool. It's quite rare to try this trick with a diagram and a bit hard to explain.
I would first have to replace "fear" with "anxiety" (dissonance).
Having done that I see a coherent result if growth is this smallest enclosed circle, followed by learning, dissonance and comfort.
Does that make sense?
