Don’t Always Play it Safe

Daily Door for August 15 - Don't Always Play it Safe - Quote: "A ship is safe in harbor, but that's not what ships are for." - William G.T. Shedd

 

It’s scary taking risks. It’s easier to play it safe and not stick your neck out too far, but how does it feel? Is it fulfilling? Do you feel like you’re really achieving your potential?

 

Stepping Out of the Comfort Zone

We humans are interesting creatures. We have so much potential, and we are physically and mentally designed to do great things. However, we have no idea what we are capable of until we actually start trying things. So we, ourselves, are continuously discovering what we can do.

The only way to know what you’re capable of is to try. That means you have to step out of your comfort zone. If you always play it safe and don’t take risks, you will never know just what you can do and achieve. You may never see your full potential.

 

Action Item

In what area of your life do you tend to play it safe? Is there more than one area? Challenge yourself to step out of your comfort zone and take a risk. It doesn’t matter how small it is, just choose something. Enjoy the feeling of pushing your own limits and the reward that comes with it.

 

Affirmation

“I have the courage to step out of my comfort zone.”

 

Please share your own experience. Do you tend to play it safe, or are you comfortable with stepping out of your comfort zone? If you have trouble taking risks, what’s holding you back? Let’s all help each other on our journeys by motivating and supporting each other.

 

Keep having the courage to walk through those doors, and have an awesome day!
