The Edge of Comfort



The more you’re willing to try new things, the more you’ll evolve and grow as a person. As kids we embrace this fully. We chase every interest imaginable much to the irritation of our parents who pay for karate lessons, guitar lessons, art classes, basketball leagues and just about everything else that captures out interest for even the slightest of moments.

Of course we lose interest in some of those things and eventually we get told “just pick something and stick with it.” For the most part this is good advice, until we get to adult life and stop picking things period because we’ve been busy “sticking with it” as far back as we can remember. But it’s only when we chase those crazy wild eyed dreams of ours that we get out of our comfort zones, those dreams materialize, and we grow.

Everything that you are familiar with today was once unfamiliar territory. There was a time when you didn’t know how to walk, talk or read. But you do all of those things effortlessly now. If you took a similar approach to everything else you learn in life, you’ll be amazed at how quickly you progress.

Standing on the edge of your comfort zone is about finding a balance between courage and stupidity.
