Week 21 – Get out of your “Comfort Zone”

Aloha and Welcome Back everyone to Week 21.  It sure has been another crazy week for us here in Milwaukee.  Week 21 shares with us the fact that we all have something called a “Comfort Zone”.

In our “Comfort Zone” we can find ourselves being somewhat “trapped”.  We are afraid of crossing our zone because of the unknown.  We have become our own reluctant hero.  I have a poem to read and reflect on.

THE COMFORT ZONE

I used to have a comfort zone where I knew I couldn’t fail.
The same four walls and busy work were really more like jail.
I longed so much, to do the things I’d never done before.
But stayed inside my “Comfort Zone” and paced the same old floor.

I said it didn’t matter that I wasn’t doing much.
I said I didn’t care for things like diamonds, furs and such.
I claimed to be so busy with things inside my zone;
but deep inside I longed for something special of my own.

I couldn’t let my life go by just watching others win.
I held my breath and stepped outside to let the change begin!
I took a step and with new strength I’d never felt before,
I kissed my comfort zone “GOOD-BYE
I closed and locked the door.

If you are in a comfort zone, afraid to venture out,
remember that all winners were at one time filled with doubt.
A step or two and words of praise can make your dreams come true.
Greet your future with a smile,
success is there for YOU!

WOW…not much more here I can say about our Comfort Zone.  I just would like to ask you to think back, think back to week 17HJ ad see if you can R2A2 this poem to your own Hero’s Journey.

We hope that this has inspired you to take a closer look at your own Comfort Zone and how you do have the power to change your life and the lives of your spouse, friends and family for the better.

Mahalo for stopping by.  See you next week.  Thank you for leaving a comment and as always….SHINE ON!!
