The inspiration for Comfort/Danger zone came from the realization that I had been trying to be comfortable in life. You may think to yourself, what’s the problem with being comfortable? The answer may be uncomfortable to hear. Everything is wrong with being comfortable with where you are at. If you are comfortable in life, that means that you have settled. It means that you are no longer willing to grow.
There were so many things that I was uncomfortable with. I was intimidated by the gym, I was an introvert, I was a homebody. I realized I wasn’t happy with my life and I had to do something about it. You’ve probably heard it time and time again to get out of your comfort zone and live a little. I can say from first hand that, while it is difficult at first, if you shed the limitations you place on yourself – you will be surprised with the results. The only way that you will be able to gain this knowledge and awareness is to do things that you have not tried, things that you have not done.
This is about attaining a life that you are worthy of. I have heard time and time again that life gives you what you deserve, not what you want. I was unhappy with my life and I could only blame myself because I had created the circumstances that surrounded me. Life was giving me what I deserved. You can sit there and be bitter for the life that you have, or you can do something about it. You’re going to have to pay a price, so start getting uncomfortable for the life you want and you will be rewarded with the life you deserve.
This is the reminder to me that if I ever find myself comfortable, that I am in danger. Whether that be in my life professionally or personally or at the gym. It is no longer my goal in life to be comfortable.
