To overcome fear, we must venture out just past the edge of our comfort zones.  We must become friendly with the unknown, willing to become uncomfortable, and able to manage this area with peace and ease.  (For more information about this concept, grab a copy of my new book, Holding Space-A Guide to Supporting Others While Remembering to Take Care of Yourself First).

It is in embracing the unknown that we uncover what was previously hidden.  Having been revealed to us, we now have another piece of our puzzle, and can advance forward one more step.

We are frozen by fear when we do not allow ourselves to experience the uncomfortable state of “not knowing.”It is perfectly o.k. to play things safe, but it is not a place where much growth typically occurs.

So if we desire to move forward, or change a certain situation, the best place to start is just outside of our comfort zone. That’s where the gold is.
