The Comfort Zone

Comfort Zone


Comfort Zone

I used to have a comfort zone where I knew I wouldn’t fail.

The same four walls and busywork were really more like jail.

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

But 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 commission cheques and such.

I claimed to be so busy with 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; I stepped outside and 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!
