Expanding your comfort zone

You’ve had the courage to step outside your comfort zone. You’ve become confident doing things you never thought you could do.

Congratulations are in order. But a little wariness is called for too.

Because you haven’t eliminated your comfort zone. You’ve expanded it, making yourself more likely than ever to get stuck in it.

Even though you’ve successfully challenged yourself forward, here’s what you must now do. Challenge yourself again.

Fortunately, dealing with a difficult challenge is one of the things you do best. After all, you’ve seen how effective you can be, and you’ve earned the chance to see yourself in action again.

So don’t get too comfortable with your newfound success. There are a whole lot more good things for you to achieve.

— Ralph Marston
