but stepping off from the top of a 20-story building is not a leap of faith, nor is it stepping out of your comfort zone; it is a leap of stupidity. I know what will happen if I do, so that action is not outside of my comfort zone, it is outside of all logic or reason. However, BASE jumping from a 20-story building might be more along the lines of stepping out of your comfort zone, if you are a “regular” skydiver, but only the first time you do it.
The pretext to all this “comfort zone” argument is some people know that their comfort zone is very limited and they know there is room beyond it that can be “safely” explored.
If you are a housewife that does nothing but care for the house and the kids, stepping out of your comfort zone might involve something as simple as shopping at a different store or trying a new brand of shampoo. However, for a avid daredevil, stepping out might entail something that others would consider suicidal.
Everybody has their limits; stepping out of your comfort zone just means you are willing to take that “risk” and try something outside of those limits, once in a while. You might like it and it might open new horizons for you … or you’ll be sorry and never do it again, but at least you can say you tried it. :-) 11 months ago
