“Life begins at the end of your comfort zone. So if you’re feeling uncomfortable right now, know that the change taking place in your life is a beginning, not an ending.” Neale Donald Walsch
The thought today is personally challenging. Getting out of the rut to think or try something new or different is not usually on the agenda.
Interestingly, the success of leadership depends on the ability, or maybe the flexibility, to recognize the limits of our comfort zone and the life that begins at that point.
Remember the definition of insanity: doing the same things in the same way, yet expecting different results.
The main reason behind our “insanity” is known as the comfort zone. We do this because it is where we operate most comfortably.
Imagine the change in following God on the part of the Jewish nation after 1,500+ years of the same approach, and now something far different than what they were comfortable with was occurring.
Leadership operates the same. We are not talking unscriptural, but when ideas and plans are introduced that make us uncomfortable, maybe life is just beginning.
