Check Your Comfort Zone At The Door

No matter what goals and dreams you desire, there's a good chance it's going to mean reaching beyond what you believe yourself to be capable of.

This fine line between what we think we can achieve and cannot is often referred to as one's comfort zone.

Whether it's giving a report in class, or preparing to make a speech to the board of directors at your company -- we all have a point where we begin to doubt what we're made of. Can we really pull it off we ask ourselves?

Perhaps you're asking yourself something similar at this very moment in your life. Let me assure you -- the answer is YES! Yes you can.

Now that's not to say you're not going to be scared, or perhaps even hear your knees knocking. Fear, is simply part of being human -- to some degree, we all deal with it.

The key is to manage that fear and not allow it to hold us back. At the risk of belittling something as serious as overcoming one's fears... I'd like to offer up this little acronym to keep in mind the next time you find yourself faced with one of life's less then comfortable situations...

F = alse
E = vidence
A = ppearing
R = eal

Don't worry; what you read above is not a typo :-) Keep that saying in mind, and also keep clearly in mind that just beyond your personal comfort zone lays great achievements.
