To the degree we’re not living our dreams, our comfort zone has more control over us than we have of ourselves. – Peter McWilliams

I’ve gotta’ go.

Though this place is familiar.
Though this place is full of great memories.
Though this place is where many of my first victories were won…

I must leave.

I’m not growing in this place.
I’m not learning in this place.
I’m not developing in this place.

And the longer I stay, the more I will suffer.

This place does not force me to take risks.
This place does not challenge me to be bold.
This place does not expect me to become better than what I am.

This place is where my dreams will die.

So where, exactly, is this place I speak of?

My comfort zone.

And as of today, this is a place to which I will never return.
