Leave your comfort zone

85 pounds of snake around my neck! Now that's something new.

I think one of the main things that keeps us from reaching our goals is being scared. Scared of what people will say, scared of failing, scared of not knowing what is going to happen next… this characteristic of being “scared” is a giant obstacle. Lately, I have been trying to live out of my comfort zone and it is amazing. Now looking back on the past, I’ve realized that I have had many lost opportunities. I regret not challenging myself. From now on, I am changing this. You can start small and work big. I’m starting small. I play tennis and I need to stop being scared to speak up. Speak up to my coach, speak up to my team and most importantly, speaking up to myself. Telling myself I am going to fight for what I have worked for. Not speaking up can really limit your success. Have a voice. This will have life long results. Also, just the other day, I had the chance to hold a 12-foot long python. This is definitely out of my comfort zone but you know what? I did it! And I am so glad I did. I don’t know when I will have that opportunity again, so when the opportunity arises, go for it! Furthermore, I have had many lost opportunities that are channelling my thoughts towards expanding my horizons. Now, I hate waiting for those chances to come again. Start today because it will change your life.
