Move beyond your comfort zone

By Cassandra Tyndall

Regardless of what you’ve got your sights on achieving this year, it takes bravery, courage and the willingness to see things differently to make the choice to change. Being amped up with an inflated sense of enthusiasm allows us to dream up the impossible and make it possible.

Despite the best of intentions, it can be easy to lose sight of what actually takes to go from point A to point B. There will be effort, toil, conflict within yourself (or even with others) and the required compromises to move beyond a comfort zone.

This week, a sudden plot twist, a fork in the road or a surprising turn of events may steer you off course, or prompt the need to make a quick choice. Under this week’s volatile skies, eruptions or explosions are bound to take place. If you’re stuck in a comfort zone, you may make a sudden realization that it isn’t all that comfortable after all.

It’s also possible that in order to achieve your dreams for the future, you may have to give up more than you originally anticipated. Bear in mind, if you’re not willing to sacrifice for what you want, what you want will be the sacrifice.
