“Move out of your comfort zone. You can only grow if you are willing to feel awkward and uncomfortable when you try something new.”
~ Brian Tracy, Author and Speaker
It is amazing how the very thing that has brought you this far can over time become a box that is keeping you bound from experiencing new opportunities. Very few people take the time to reinvent themselves in pursuit of a new and often bigger adventure. The reason many of us allow our current boxes to keep us from moving forward is the fear of the unknown and also the fear of loss. When you have spent years building your current box, the fear of loosing what you have can keep you from getting what you could if you attempted new things.
Each one of us, no matter how far we have gone in the pursuit of our dreams, have the potential to be much more than we are now. But to reach that potential we have to be willing to step out of our now comfort zones and dream even bigger dreams. You have to recognise that everything you have experienced and done up to this point has been preparation for an even higher dream. You can only attempt the next big thing because you have pushed through and done what you have done up until now.
Success Is A Continual Process Of Leaving The Familiar And Going To A New Place. Like In A Video Game, Mastering One Stage Opens The Door To the Next.
What is your current box of comfort? Is it your current employment, business or a certain level in your sporting endeavour? Whatever it is, you need to decide whether this is the best you’ll ever be or there is still more for you. I believe that living your full potential means that as long as we are alive, we can’t stop reaching higher and further. So the question for you is; what is going to be the next chapter in your story of potential and development. Dream it, Plan it and Do it!
