Sometimes the place you are used to is not the place you belong.

January 23th - getting out of my comfort zone
You never change you’re life until you step out of your comfort zone; change begins at the end of your comfort zone.
Roy T. Bennett
Sometimes the best personal and professional experiences we can have in our lives are when we completely step outside our comfort zone. Even if they are a failure, we know we tried something new and likely gained a great deal in the process.
As much as I love my comfort zone, it is necessary now and then to try something new. It might be a little scary at first but when we try something new, it broadens our perspective on life. We tend to spend too much effort on keeping things as is and not enough striving for what could be. Whether it is trying out a new consignment store, a hike on a new trail, cooking a new recipe, or the launch of a new career, trying new things is exhilarating. Don’t let fear stop you.
I haven’t tried anything new in a long while, and I feel the need to shake things up and step out of my comfort zone. Doing the same old things really isn’t comfortable for me at all.
Trying new things is its own reward, freeing us to have the experiences that we long to enjoy, It’s a surprise gift waiting for us but such a loss when we don’t open it due to fear.of failure.
One of the great tragedies in life is in not developing your potential. You robbing yourself and the world of the wonderful talents God has given you.
We all need variety in our lives. So it’s out with the old and in with the new for me. I’m going to get creative and try out something new. Life is meant to be an adventure and they are always there when you look for them. It’s important to remember that tailing at something does not make a person a failure. Most people who have done great things have failed many times before they actually succeeded.
Do one thing everyday that scares you.
