And each time we step out of our comfort zone we become stronger.
I have a note on my 'fridge - "get out of your comfort zone today."
One huge asset I have acquired through recovery is a totally accidental by-product of AA. I can do public speaking now! It used to absolutely terrify me, but since I 'got out of my comfort zone' and shared at meetings, and gave leads at meetings, I can do public speaking now.
When I public speak now I just pretend everyone in the audience is in AA. Now I am terrified I will introduce myself as "Hi I'm Tommy K. and I am an alcoholic" at a business function!
Great topic - get out of your comfort zone!
