YOUR COMFORT ZONE NEEDS TO BECOME FOREIGN TO YOU
I never quite understood the essence of leaving my comfort zone, after all, it was mine for the taking right? I fell at ease and at peace there. What could I possibly want out of life that made it a necessity for me to get out of my comfort zone?
I heard the phrase: ‘Everything you want is on the other side of fear’ and that shook me to my core. Could my comfort zone be loosely attached to fear? The answer to that was a resounding Yes. If anything it was very tightly attached to fear. They co-existed in a symbiotic relationship, each, mutually benefitting from the other and that was when I realized that it was time for me to ditch fear and start working towards my goals; many times that meant, not stepping but inhabiting outside of my comfort zone.
