The Comfort Zone

I used to have a comfort zone where I knew I couldn't fail,
The same four walls of busy work were really more like a jail

I longed so much to do the things I'd never done before,
But I stayed inside my comfort zone and paced the same old floor

I said it didn't matter that I wasn't doing much
I said I didn't care for things like a new car, house, clothes, and such

I claimed to be so busy with the things inside my zone,
But deep inside, I longed for something special of my own

I couldn't let my life go by just watching others win, 
I held my breath and stepped outside to let the change begin

I took a step and with new strength I'd never felt before,
I kissed my comfort zone goodbye and closed and locked the door

If you are in a comfort zone afraid to venture out, 
Remember that all winners were at one time filled with doubt

A step or two and words of praise can make your dreams come true
Greet your future with a smile, success is there of you!
