Outside the Comfort Zone

Everything you want is just outside your comfort zone-Robert Allen

 

We talk a lot about comfort these days. We have luxury cars and comfortable shoe. We even have a restaurant type called “comfort food.”

There’s a lot to be said for comfort. It’s something that we strive for – a comfortable wage, a comfortable home, you get the idea.

We have created a place, the comfort zone, where we choose to stay rather than speaking in public or helping out with a cause on the weekend. To stay within the comfort zone is to do nothing out of the ordinary.

In order to have those items that give us comfort, we first must be willing to get out of that zone to earn it. The Everyday Revolutionary must become comfortable outside the comfort zone, because indeed, everything you want lies outside of it.

You don’t have to dive into the deep end to start. Just a few steps out will demonstrate that discomfort can be overcome if the outcome is important to you.

Go ahead, stick your toe in.

The #NeverAgain movement has quickly become a national movement, but in keeping with the spirit of The Everyday Revolutionary, we understand that national movements are made up of well run local movements. Here’s an article from Hingham, Mass about the organization of the student walkout there.

But since you’ve decided to enter the world of Everyday Revolutionaries, you’ve chosen yourself…and you need to view yourself, humbly, as such! Listen in to the podcast for some encouragement for the Chosen Ones!
