I used to have a comfort zone, where I knew I couldn’t fail;
The same four walls and busy work were really more like jail.
I longed so much to do the things I’d never done before,
But, I stayed inside my comfort zone and paced the same old floor.
I said it didn’t matter that I wasn’t doing much,
I said I didn’t care for diamonds, rings, and such.
I claimed to be so busy with the things inside the zone,
But deep inside I longed for something special all my own!
I couldn’t let my life go by just watching others win
I held my breath and stepped outside to let the change begin!!
I took a step and with new strength, I’d never felt before,
I kissed my comfort zone good-bye, and closed and locked the door!!
If you are in a comfort zone, afraid to venture out
Remember that all winners, at one time were filled with doubt!
A step or two and words of praise can make your dreams come true!
Greet your future with a smile and Success is there for you!!
I have to admit, I can be a creature of habit. I invest in new trainings, buy into new ideas and in theory they are all wonderful. The truth is, they don’t work unless you put them to work. It is like the doctor giving you medicine to cure something, you leave it in the box and you remain sick. I “want to but” seems to hang on my tongue. “What will people think?” rings in my head. REALLY!!! I stepped out of my comfort zone in the past and success surrounded me. About 18 months, someone’s simple statement sent me back into a tailspin of self-doubt, fear, insecurity along with Doubtful Debbie.
Today, as I put my holiday parties from my business to rest and gear up for the New Year, I am filled with awe and wonder. Ready to step out of my comfort zone. Ready to explore new territories. Ready to claim the blessings that are mine.
Who is ready to step outside of their comfort zone and join me?
Have a ThirtyOne-derful day!
