The Comfort Zone: How to Leave It Behind

Boot Camp Fitness for All Shapes and Sizes: Complete Manual to Exceed Your GoalsWe all have our life zones where we feel comfortable. Comfortable with how things are even though we might like to change some things.

I know some people who decided to leave their comfort zone behind. Those who are attending my 5:30 a.m. Small Group Training for five weeks, three times per week, have decided to get out of their comfort zone and bring about positive change by burning a few more calories and getting in better shape.

This brings me to a poem about The Comfort Zone I'd like to share with you:

The Comfort Zone
I used to have a comfort zone where I knew I wouldn’t fail.
The same four walls and busywork were really more like jail. 
I longed so much to do the things I’d never done before, but stayed inside my comfort zone and paced the same old floor.
I said it didn’t matter that I wasn’t doing much.
I said I didn’t care for things like commission cheques and such. 
Quotes to live by (The Health Colonel Series)
By Lt. Col. Bob Weinstein
I claimed to be so busy with things inside my zone. 
But deep inside I longed for something special of my own.
I couldn’t let my life go by just watching others win.
I held my breath;
I stepped outside and let the change begin. 
I took a step and with new strength I’d never felt before.
I kissed my comfort zone goodbye and closed and locked the door.
