The picture above is funny, just like most of us he has a smile and thinks he is winning by being in his comfort zone….the problem is he will always remain in that bed and he won’t see all of the opportunities around him that can make life MAGICAL!
“The comfort zone is a place to rest, not to live” This quote really made me stop and think, reflecting on my own life there have been times I’ve taken the leap out of my comfort zone and as a result had a positive outcome. The leaps I’ve taken made me more comfortable, more confident, opened new opportunities and the list continues but somehow I’ve let myself stay stagnant for quite a bit of time.
The other benefit to trying new things is that it EXPANDS your comfort zone, so if you have a habit of hiding there then at least make it bigger so you can stretch out!
Assess whether you are resting or living in YOUR comfort zone and then decide what you can do to step outside of it. What will it be? What will your next move bring into your life?
I know I personally have never had a regret after I did something “bold” (we all have our own definition of boldness) I’ve always grown from it and I’m excited to continue the jumps but now I’m going to do it daily, weekly,monthly NOT just yearly!
