The Way of a Weasel

Expanding Your Comfort Zone



On my walk the other day I met this little guy – and here is his version of our encounter.


This feels wonderful – running fast toward my goal with joy and freedom!

Oooops – breaks on! I can see something big and scary in front of me. I better figure out what to do now.

Do I want to continue running and just push through my fears? No!

Do I want to change my course and move in a different direction? No!

Ok – so here is what I will do. I will move slowly a few steps at a time and then stop and check how I feel. One, to, three, four. This feels ok. Whatever that thing is, it doesn’t seem threatening. I will take a few more steps. This time I will turn sideways and pretend I am occupied with something else – and see what happens. Nothing happens. That thing is just there – I will move still closer. This is feeling pretty safe. Now I am almost there – I’d better take a good look at this thing. It seems pretty friendly. Still, I will move slowly past it. There! I did it! Now I am off and running again – continuing toward my goal and feeling even better than before because of how I handled this situation.

Hurray for me!
