Occasionally, an expression makes us uncomfortable. Such is the case with a statement from Neal Donald Walsch, “Life begins at the end of your comfort zone. So if you’re feeling uncomfortable right now, know that the change taking place in your life is a beginning, not an ending.”
Getting out of the rut to think or try something different is not usually on the agenda.
Interestingly, the success of leadership depends on the ability, or maybe the flexibility, to recognize the limits of our comfort zone and how life begins at that point.
Recently, we discussed insanity: doing the same things in the same way, yet expecting different results.
The main thought here is known as the comfort zone. We do this because its where we operate most comfortably.
Imagine the change in following God within the Jewish nation after 1,500+ years of the same approach, and now something occurred far different than their comfort zone.
Leadership operates the same. We are not talking unscriptural, but when ideas and plans are introduced that make us uncomfortable, maybe life is just beginning.
