Make a big splash...
I'm not talking dipping your toe in the water. I am talking taking the plunge...head first...sans floaties.
Most of us do not leave our comfort zone on our own.
Most of us need outside encouragement (prodding and pushing works too).
How does it feel when you are out there? Scary? Intimidating?
But what happens when you start getting more comfortable in that new uncharted territory? Guess what...your comfort zone moves out with you and becomes bigger. Your boundaries grow...your ability to "do" grows...and your reward usually grows as well.
I'm not saying you need to completely throw all logic out the door. Calculated risks are OK. Actually...the more you take...the more calculation comes into play and the variables actually lessen.
Do your research...remove the variables and do it.
When was the last time you took the plunge? If the answer is too long...jump in. The water's nice.
