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!
