Off-Topic Thursday: Out of Your Comfort Zone


That’s my wife and me on our way from boat level to 600 feet up. A huge step out of my comfort zone!


“The solution to most of your problems is outside your comfort zone.” – Michael Hyatt


What problem do you have that you most want to solve? What need is most important to meet? What goal is most important to accomplish?


Whatever your answer is, you can try to play it safe and still reach your desired end. But 99.999% of the time, that won’t work. A bird doesn’t learn to fly sitting in the nest. A baby doesn’t learn to walk without letting go of the furniture. A musician doesn’t learn to play guitar without a time of very sore fingers and awful chord changes. A business doesn’t launch successfully or reach the next milestone without the owner taking major risks.


Whatever your next step is, try looking outside your comfort zone for it—but only if you’re willing to take the risk. Few things are more disappointing in life than to know what needs to be done and being unwilling to do it.


Take the risk. Step outside your comfort zone. If your problem is important enough, and your God is big enough, then the risk is worth it. Even if you fail, and you might, you’ll have a new “normal” to start from next time, and be closer than you were before.
