Last night when I was putting my son to bed I was reading him a story like I always do.
He reads one to me first and then I read him one that he picks out.
We were reading Little Red Riding Hood and he proceeded to tell me that he doesn’t like the Big Bad Wolf.
I asked him why and he said because he’s scary.
He then said he isn’t scared of him though because he has a police officer costume he can put on and he would be safe.
It got me thinking. Adults tend to have this same mentality.
If something is scary many of us will “hide” behind our costumes or what we refer to as comfort zones.
Anxious, nervous or scared about starting a business or asking for a promotion? Shy away to our comfort zones.
Nervous or scared of the challenges that come with mending an old relationship or apologizing to someone? Shy away to our comfort zones.
Nervous or hesitant to start making healthy lifestyle changes because of the discipline it requires or the temporary pain involved with working out? Shy away to our comfort zones.
Comfort zones are definitely comfortable but nothing ever grows there.
I believe the minute we stop growing is the minute we start dying.
As adults we can only hide behind our police officer costume for so long.
It’s time to take control of your life and destroy the Big Bad Wolf you’ve been putting off for so long.
