Blessing for today ~ Progress ~
All progress takes place outside the comfort zone. ~ Michael John Bobak
A comfort zone is a nice place to rest between adventures. And, it is only meant to be an oasis for a short break. If we tarry too long in the comfort zone, stepping outside begins to seem scary. The longer we spend at the oasis, the more foreign the territory beyond feels. So, what changed? We have certainly been outside the comfort zone before, and survived. In fact, we not only prevailed, we excelled outside the comfort zone. We made great discoveries about ourselves, our world, life and beyond, outside the comfort zone. We found courage, wisdom and miraculous experiences outside the comfort zone. When we build a fence around our comfort zone, we construct a self-imposed prison. It may feel safe, but remaining too long in too small a space lends itself to a state of atrophy. The phenomenal discovery we make as we venture beyond the fence again and again is that the comfort zone expands to greater and greater expanse. As we grow and progress, so does the comfort zone. Be brave. Break out!
Will you choose to progress outside your comfort zone today?
