I love snuggling up in my comfort zone just as much as the next person, but I also believe in GROWTH. I believe in stretching my boundaries and challenging my mind and body. I believe in scaring myself shitless (safely) on a regular basis. I believe in awesome.
I believe in doing one thing that scares me every single day. Sometimes that scary thing is making a phone call. Some days, it's signing up for a race. Some days, it's pushing myself in a work out. Some days it's being outrageously vulnerable. And some day it will be jumping out of a plane.
And the more scary things I do, the bigger my comfort zone gets. I remember when teaching a core strength class scared me (and then I taught for 6 years). I remember when hiring a virtual assistant scared me. (I did that last week and I can't imagine my life without her.) I remember when swimming 4.4 miles across Chesapeake Bay scared me (and then I did it and I have the cap line to prove it).
To see that classy cap line and learn more about my techniques for breaking out of comfort zones, watch this week's video.
And then I want to hear from you. What's your relationship with your comfort zone?
