There is usually quite a distance (i.e. our safety zone) between the end of our comfort zone and the start of danger. We act as if there is little distance at all and so stay well inside our comfort zone.
Next time you catch yourself saying, “Oh, that’s just who I am,” or “That is not something I can do,” please pause.
Chances are that you are confusing the zones. Continued work in your comfort zone will keep delivering to you the results you keep seeing and leave you wondering why they don’t change.
Take a step outside your comfort zone. There is safety there even if you have feared there is not.
In your corner,
PS: I was going to title this, “S-s-s-s A-a-a-a F-f-f-f E-e-e-e T-t-t-t Y-y-y-y Zone” à la Men Without Hats. But I chickened out. 😉
