When we are comfortable and everything is going smoothly, things are predictable, routine and regular. Everything is in our control and seemingly we are contented.
What happens when we get a great idea , then have a goal and we push the boundaries of our comfort zone? We experience the new, the exciting – learn , grow and develop. We will also go into unfamiliar territory, the unknown , the risky and let’s face it, we will feel quite awkward to the point of embarrassment.
So why go there?
When I first learnt to ski , at the age of 21 years old, I managed to get on the ski lift at Perisher Valley in the Australian New South Wales ski fields, get to the top , get off, lost a ski and then have to walk down the snow covered mountain. I got to the bottom exhausted and cold. My friends found my ski, helped me back onto the ski lift for another go. Eventually, after years of lessons and practice, I just love skiing and have traveled the world skiing at some of the most fantastic places like Italy, Austria, France, Switzerland and the US.
