What stops you from going after what you want? When a project or activity is going to be difficult (or maybe even a little scary) many of us will opt to avoid the challenge and choose instead to remain inside our comfort zones. In fact, our comfort zone gets straight to work rationalizing our decision to delay, avoid or stall. This really requires no effort at all, especially if we believe we may not succeed at the specific activity. But when did we start avoiding potential success like that? When did we start subscribing to doubt? As young children, if we gave up so easily we would never have learned to walk or talk; ride a bike or learn to read, heck even learn to use the potty. So obviously this pattern of hesitancy and doubt is an acquired skill. One that can be altered with a little decisive action. Who's in charge this week, you or your comfort zone?
