I’ve been doing a whole lot of stepping outside of my comfort zone lately. It started with tip toe actions for things that made me slightly uncomfortable… then it moved into full on “this makes me REALLY uncomfortable”. The silly thing I started with were were a new hair style and nail polish color that I was sure wasn’t me and them miraculously this moved into taking on bigger and bigger projects. I had to really push myself into doing these projects even though they were great opportunities… but they were not comfy, behind the computer ones. You know the ones that I normally do.
And you know what happened? I was offered more and more awesome adventures and opportunities. These will better my life and those around me and help me to grow as a personally and professionally.
Had I not taken a deep breath and said yes none of this would have happened.
I enthusiastically encourage you to step out of your comfort zone. Don’t over think it. Don’t let the doubts and the worry set in. Tip toe if you must, but say yes even if it makes you feel uncomfortable.
How are you stepping out of your comfort zone?
