Leaving your comfort zone is imperative to true success. Without such a step, you will stay in relatively the same place, making incremental progress, and life will look very much the same for the foreseeable future. There is nothing right or wrong about this, but it does prevent big moves forward.
When we make big moves or take big steps, we may find ourselves in a place of complete unfamiliarity. This means we may not look like we know what we are doing, and may look foolish. Unfortunately, a lot of people avoid taking big steps simply because they may look foolish along the way. What if instead that was ok? What if I told you looking foolish was part of being human?
Maybe a big step isn’t needed for you today, maybe it is. Maybe you have a big step coming soon. But whatever you do, never let fear of judgment from others be a deterrent. Looking foolish means you left your comfort zone, and that is always a good thing, no matter how it turns out. Everyone ends up in the same place at the end of their lives anyway, regardless of whether or not they looked good along the way.
Never be afraid to look foolish. Instead, consider it looking human. It means you’re living life.
