One of the biggest battles I encounter every day is inertia, the tendancy to do nothing or remain unchanged. Taking action and stepping outside our comfort zones can be . . . well, uncomfortable. But I found the phrase that pushes me into motion.
There are moments from my childhood where a small seed of wisdom was deposited into my subconscious that would blossom with age. One of those seeds was planted during a Saturday morning fishing trip with my father and younger sister.
Professional speakers and self-help books encourage us to step outside our comfort zones and embrace the new. But even the new becomes a comfort zone after awhile. My step outside a comfort zone showed me the person I could be.
