I recently read a quote that said, “The Greatest Enemy To Human Potential Is Your Comfort Zone.”
Our comfort zone can be a danger zone!
When we go through a difficult time we tend to retreat to our comfort zone, which makes us feel safe.
Unfortunately for many of us, the comfort zone is ripe with old patterns and negative coping skills.
Ironically, it is dangerous to remain in this comfort zone for too long. To make things more complicated, it can be terrifying and extremely difficult to move out of this stuck place, and get back to life.
But in order to grow and heal, and in order to achieve our potential in life, we must be willing to take that first step out of the comfort zone.
