Nothing great ever happens inside of a comfort zone. Why? Because it’s a safe haven for being lazy. When you are in your comfort zone you are relaxed and in charge of everything. It’s YOUR comfort zone. Nobody knows you better than you. In times of pressure, vulnerability, and flat out being uncomfortable is when the magic happens. That level of uneasy makes us do things we wouldn’t do, it makes us say things we wouldn’t normally say, it makes us react faster and sharper by nature. There is a reason why it is said that the most dangerous animal in the world is an animal that is backed into a corner. We as humans are the same. When we are faced with pressure to do something and you are backed into that corner, there are only two things you can do. Fight or die!
Think of it in terms of public speaking. It is a fact that public speaking is the biggest fear in the world, even or dying. Most people hate it and won’t do it. It’s the fear that consumes them to literally say “I can’t do this.” In that moment when you are up in front of a group of people and they are waiting to hear what you have to say, you can either speak or run off scared. I think there is something to be said towards your courage for even standing up to speak in the first place. Do not be afraid of your moment. Do not be afraid to make a mistake. The irony is the moment you make a mistake people are empathetic to you because they often have the same fears. Embrace being uncomfortable! Once you master that art the sky is truly a limit you will surpass. Be Inspired!
