Life really does begin outside your comfort zone. Playing it safe will never develop character, strength, or confidence. If you want more you must stretch yourself. Becoming a public speaker is most people’s number one fear. It certainly was for me. My voice used to crackle if I had to speak in public. But now, I love it! I overcame my fear because I wanted to be an empowerment coach. I didn’t allow the fear to stop me from pursuing my desire. I urge you to go ahead and step into your uncomfortable zone. What is it that you want? Give it a try. Then do it again and again. Soon, you will have gotten comfortable with what at one time was uncomfortable. Then you will have to stretch again to reach the next level of what ever makes you uncomfortable. You see, life is always expanding and expressing. So step outside your comfort zone to develop your character, strength, and confidence. I’m sure you will be happy that you did!
