Remember when you started driving?
You felt Nervous – having to learn about road rules, how the car works, how to avoid other drivers (including cops)… I certainly remember feeling nervous, as though I would never make it. But then, you pass the test and drive a bit and suddenly, getting into a car is second nature.
That feeling of nervousness is the almost tangible edge of your comfort zone. When you do something despite that feeling of nervousness (and assuming you don’t fail miserably), you expand your comfort zone.
Then you get into a car which is automatic (or manual) and you feel nervous again. This is the edge of your new, expanded comfort zone.
Yes, moving outside your comfort zone takes courage, confidence and the will to get past it, but that is what life is about!
How often do you push the boundaries of your comfort zone?
