Re: Dealing with Doubts as FIRE Approaches

Change is always though. Kept this poem in my birefcase for a few years. Hope it helps ...


I used to have a comfort zone
Where I knew I couldn't fail.
The same four walls of busy work
Were really like a jail.

I longed so much to do the things
I'd never done before.
But stayed inside my comfort zone
And paced the same old floor.

I claimed to be so busy
With the things inside my zone.
But deep inside I longed for
Something special of my own

I couldn't let my life go by
Just watching others win.
I held my breath and stepped outside
To let the change begin.

I took a step and with new strength
I'd never felt before,
I kissed my comfort zone goodbye
And closed and locked the door.

If you are in a comfort zone,
Afraid to venture out,
Remember that all winners were
At one time filled with doubt.

A step or two and words of praise,
Can make your dreams come true.
Greet your future with a smile,
Success is there for you!

FIRE'd since 2005
