A comfort zone can be so appealing. That familiar place where you feel at ease. No stressors, no pressures, no issues. It’s the easy chair in front of the TV, the job you do with your eyes shut, and autopilot daily motions with little thought to execution. For some, it spells perfection with no yearning for growth.
Another place many find themselves is with a burning desire for something extraordinary. Let’s call it Uneasy Street, where dreams are not a fleeting thought. What is the best method to initiate and master this exciting journey? JUMP IN???
This precipice is where many find themselves stuck.
…Yet, I have news for you. You may not be stuck.
A concept was brought up this week in the Master Keys webinar. Instead of jumping into the unknown, what about a continual stretching of the outer limits of the comfort zone?
And then it hit me…For many months, members of the MKE class have been writing down each week a service(task) for themselves and one service (task) that moves the goals in our Definite Major Purpose (to be accomplished during the week). Once accomplished, mark completed. No ignominious conditions in this group.
Little by little, we have pushed the outer edge of our comfort zone, feeling a bit unsettled and yet not so pained to have us recoiling in fear. Have you made the connection yet? The comfort zone has already expanded. You are on your way!!!
Guided in such a beautiful manner that it seemed effortless. A little stretch here, a little stretch there…
Lesson Learned: Stretching onto “uneasy” street isn’t painful.
