you want
is just
your comfort zone.

I used to have a comfort zone
where I knew I wouldn't fail.
The same four walls and busywork
were really more like jail.

I longed so much to do the things
I'd never done before,
But 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 things like
commission checks and such.

I claimed to be so busy
with the things inside the zone,
But deep inside,
I longed
 for something special of my own.

I couldn't let my life go by
just watching others win.
I held my breath;
I stepped outside
and let the change begin.

I took a step
and with new strength I'd never felt before,
I kissed my comfort zone goodbye
and closed
 and locked the door.

         If you're in a comfort zone,
         afraid to venture out,
                 Remember that all winners
                 were at one time
                 filled with doubt.

                                 A step or two and words of praise
                                 can make your dreams come true.
                                 Reach for your future with a smile;
                                 success is there for you!
Beyond a wholesome discipline,
be gentle with yourself.

You are a child of the universe,
no less than the trees and stars;
you have a right to be here,

and whether or not it is clear to you;
no doubt the universe
is unfolding as it should.
Move out of your comfort zone.
You can only grow if you are willing
to feel awkward and uncomfortable
when you try something new.

Leaving one's comfort zone is no small chore!
I've learned this first hand.
I can say that when all's said and done
it's worth it!
