The Comfort Zone
Unknown Author

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 or 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 good bye 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!

"You will either step FORWARD into GROWTH,
or you will step BACK into SAFETY"

~ Abraham Maslow
