Are you stuck in Comfort Zone of fear or complacent?

I read a quote on Facebook by Code Black Life that said, "If you want something you never had, then you need to do something you never done."

Think about this statement for a minute. It speaks truth on so many levels. I have heard many people say, they want to do something different because their tired of the same routine. Or better yet, they want to pursue a dream. Ask yourself,  What is stopping you?  Sometimes we find ourselves complacent and in a comfortable position where we are familiar and just don't want to change what is not broken.   Yet, we have to get uncomfortable in our comfort zone in order to shake some things up that makes us want to move on our desires.

For instance, If you want to change your job then you will need to update your resume and apply for jobs. You might make a list of target companies that you are interested In working for.  You might even network with a few people of influence that work for your target company.  Before you can do that, you must get out your comfort zone.  Your attitude and mindset has to change. 

The same rule applies if you want to pursue your dreams of being your own boss.  You must put in the work, commitment, dedication, and invest in your dreams to make them reality. However, none of that can happen until you get out of your comfort zone and do something different that will produce different results. It's time to align yourself with people who are doing what you desire to do. 

It's time we stop talking about what we would love to do and get out of our comfort zone and just do it.  Are you stuck in your comfort zone called complacent lane or the lane of fear?
