your comfort zone. 1
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,
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 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! 2
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. 3
|Move out of your comfort zone.
You can only grow if you are willing
to feel awkward and uncomfortable
when you try something new. 4
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! 5
