The Comfort Zone

Author Unknown

I used to have a comfort zone where I knew I couldn’t fail,

The same four walls of busy work were really more like a jail.

I longed so much to do the things I’d never done before,

But I 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 diamonds, furs and such.

I claimed to be so busy with the 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 and stepped outside to 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.


If you are in a comfort zone afraid to venture out,

Remember that all winners were at one time filled with doubt.


A step or two and words of praise can make your dreams come true.

Greet your future with a smile, success is there for you!
