“A comfort zone is a beautiful place, but nothing ever grows there.” -unknown
Our comfort zone is safe. It lacks challenge. We have an abundance of support. The likeliness of failure is slim to none….and this is why so many of us reside here. It’s easy to dream up some awesome goals here, but to believe growth will happen is naive. We can’t expect our low challenge lifestyle to bring forth the same success that a high challenge environment would….growth happens in a place of challenge.
If our dreams are worth dreaming, aren’t they worth the challenge it takes to achieve them? We might lose support when the journey to our dream begins because we have now created a new level of challenge for ourselves, that others may not want to participate in.
Failure becomes a bigger part of our lifestyle, but we must acknowledge that success is never reached without trial and error…and we must realize that our safety is only measured by the ideas we have about comfort.
We must strive to find comfort in growth, in high challenge, and in our journey to success. There is comfort in pursuing our dreams, rather than just dreaming of them. We don’t want to miss out on growth simply because it might be difficult.
