“You only ever grow as a human being if you're outside your comfort zone.” —Percy Cerutty, running coach
change is hard for me. i am a creature of habit. i like to park in the same row when i go to target or the grocery store, and i always take the same route to school. i find the way i like to do something and just continue to do it the same way every time.
i like to be in my comfort zone, and when i'm not, i am very anxious.
i try to figure things out way ahead of time, so as to avoid being surprised. i always arrive places early. after all, my motto is, "if you're on time, you're late". things in my life are very orderly & predictable. i like to have a contingency plan at all times, and a realistic view of things.
but when i decide i am going to do something, i go all out. i do everything i can to obtain my goal. i have a fierce determination and drive.
but are my goals too realistic?
am i too anxious and afraid to really shoot for the moon??
i don't take chances.
every accomplishment starts with the decision to try.
but are my dreams not high enough??
i want to push my limits
both mentally & physically
to see what i'm really made of
i want to shoot for the moon
that is why i'm reassessing my goals for this marathon.
i want to go past what i'm comfortable with
or think i may be able to do.
i want a "pie in the sky" type goal
i want to be outside my comfort zone
but i'm taking a risk
i'm pushing the limits...
big time :)
