Your Second Step Towards A Great Year.


Get out of your comfort zone.

When people remain in their comfort zone for too long, they often find themselves losing interest because they are never challenged. They always feel relaxed and get bored. Perhaps, the only good reason is, inside our comfort zone   we will not be making any any costly mistake.

As a matter of fact, it is amazing to see how people will hang on to what is comfortable or at least familiar rather than letting go and going after what really excites them. Indeed, there is no guarantee that you will achieve anything if you leave your comfort zone. But, if you never leave your comfort zone, you are guaranteed not to achieve it at all.

Following the herd mentality is a sure way to mediocrity. Just as ships were not built to stay in the harbor, we were not made to stay where it is safe. I believe our dreams lie beyond the horizon and we are both resilient and resourceful in pushing ourselves as far as we can go because you never know when life might give a little and open a new passage ……………………..

Have a great weekend.


A Brief Update: I have been involved in a new project since the start of 2012 and that explains why I have not been active of late. It will take another few weeks before I can free myself a little. Meanwhile, God Bless and Warmest Wishes to all of you.

    Michael….You are so right. The comfort zone is like cement, the longer you stay still the harder it gets to move. You have got to keep flowing…..VK

    Nice Michael! Nice! I soooo agree. I was so stuck for so long, so full of fear of leaving the comfort zone, but the funny thing was that I didn’t really like the comfort zone, and now that I’ve seen how if you look fear in the face, it really isn’t real, I’m going for it. Thanks for the reminder.

    Once again, inspirational post! Hope your project goes well.
    Have a great weekend!

  6. Wow, I wish I could write short, sweet, profound posts like this one. Very well said and beautifully succinct. Good luck with you new project.

  7. fear of the unknown is a great immobilizer. but taking one step towards a dream, then another, and yet another is empowering. it makes you feel brave and then, finally you hear yourself say, I can do this! Wonderful post!

  8. Your fear and your gremlins stop you from moving on!

  9. Good to see another post from you and that you doing good! I need to learn to get out of my Comfort Zone some more. God Bless 🙂

    Thank You for sharing your valued opinions here my friends. God Bless.

  11. And that is what life is all about. Get out of your shell, explore and most of all dare to be different than the “Norm” !!! because the “Norm” is boring!!!
    Cheers & Here’s to Health

  12. Lovely post Michael. God bless you in your endeavors this year. 😀

  13. I guess I’ll have to step out of my box a little and live more. Great post.

    Hey Michael!! I hope the year is to a good start for you and of course… another excellent post.

    Comfort zones are safe. They are secure. Your surroundings are familiar and pose little or no threat. And in our comfort zones we become more and more insular and self centred.
    We weren’t created to be comfortable. We were created to serve others. To serve others we need to get out of our own and into their comfort zones, and help them grow and encourage them to serve others also.
    Seems to me that is precisely what you are doing Michael. Great work.
    Happy New Year.

  16. Dance to a different drummer … sing a different song …!!!
    Very nice …

  17. Yes but sometimes staying in one’s comfort zone IS a costly mistake!
