The World Beyond our Comfort Zone

“Look both ways before crossing the street.”

“It’s better to be safe than sorry. “

“We’ve always done it that way.”

“Don’t rock the boat.”

Many of us were taught to play it safe. Being what we are now is safe.  Staying where we are is comfortable. The problem is that when we don’t move forward, when we choose to stay where we are right now, we become stagnant, we become stale, we become bored.

Becoming the best we can be means pushing past the barriers of our comfort zone.  It means daring to dream, to hope, to create a vision for our future.  It means being willing to let go of what has become too comfortable, too easy, too common place.

It means opening up our hearts and our minds to change, to possibilities and to opportunities.  And sometimes it means closing our eyes, taking a deep breath and leaping off the cliff towards a stronger, more fulfilling future.

 “Life begins at the end of your comfort zone.” ~ Neale Donald Walsch
