Stepping Out of Your Comfort Zone

2 min readHigh RopesWell, January is almost over and most days I’ve done something new.  I’m finding that it’s really pushing me outside of my comfort zone. Sometimes it’s something small like trying a new dish at a restaurant – FYI chilled paw paw soup is very good!

Other times it’s something a little bigger.  On vacation last week, we really wanted to go snorkelling but couldn’t find any tours on the day we wanted.  We had met a guy on the beach who had a boat and said he would take us snorkelling.  After much discussion we decided to take a chance – we gave him our cash deposit, with no receipt, and hoped that he would be there the next day as arranged.

Well it turned out to be one of the best days of our vacation.  What this really drove home to me is that sometimes we let fear hold us back.  We almost didn’t go because he didn’t have an office and a receipt book.  There was an element of risk.  Not a huge risk – we had seen some other people come back from one of his boat trips with all their body parts intact – but we could have lost our money.

So try stepping out of your comfort zone occasionally – shake it up a bit.  Sometimes you may be disappointed but other times you may be very pleasantly surprised.
