My Comfort Zone

Here is a great poem that was shared by one of our leaders on our team!  Had to share it with you!

My 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 checks and such.
I claimed to be so busy with the things inside the 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're 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.

Reach for your future with a smile; success is there for you!

Is There a Brick Wall in Front of You?

 I know many people think there are brick walls all around them. I thought I would share this quote! "The brick walls are not there to keep us out; the brick walls are there to give us a chance to show how badly we want something."~Randy Pausch
May is going to be a great month! I would love to help you through the brick wall by helping you take charge of your future!
