NEVER Step Outside Your Comfort Zone

You hear all the time that “life begins outside the comfort zone”.

Well I think that’s BS and here’s why…

Let’s imagine there’s a comfort zone, and you’re inside it. And then…you manage to rustle up the guts to step outside it…then what? …You step back inside it???

What’s the point of that? Sounds kinda dumb when you think about it like that – don’t you think?

How about we EXPAND our comfort zone…consistently…what was uncomfortable becomes comfortable and what we didn’t know was uncomfortable becomes uncomfortable until it becomes comfortable…and what we didn’t know we didn’t know was uncomfortable becomes uncomfortable until it becomes comfortable…and so on. Are ya pickin up what I’m putting down?

I have to share about Nick. What a flipping legend! I dared Nick last night to expand his comfort zone and approach a couple of strangers at a pub and engage in a little joke...at first I thought he wasn’t going to do it. Neither did he. It was waaayyy too far outside his comfort zone. I could see himself psych himself up, palms were sweating, the blood drained from his face. He knew he needed to do this to expand his comfort zone so he could be bigger, better, faster, stronger…

And by George he did. I was so excited for him. You could see he was relieved, excited, thrilled all at once. And I saw a glimmer of pride there too. Good on him! Go Nick!

I was hiding around the corner taking photos…it was dark so they didn’t turn out so well…
