Dewaynes Scott’s new release, Stepping Outside Your Comfort Zone is a modern-day parable about a dog inside an invisible fence. This easy to understand analogue is the the spiritual launching pad for practical lessons on understanding your fears and depending more on the Creator to grow you in ways never imagined.
ABOUT THE BOOK
STEPPING OUTSIDE YOUR COMFORT ZONE begins with an illustration that most people are familiar with it’s an invisible fence used primarily for dogs.
How does the fence work? A metal line is buried underground around the perimeter of the property where the invisible fence boundaries will be and a device is put around the animal's neck that communicates with the metal line buried below. If the dog crosses the boundary, he or she receives a mild shock. This shock serves to remind the dog of its boundaries and keep it safe.
The animal might test the boundary just a few more times to validate its existence but over time, it will learn to stay within the boundary. Why?
The fear of the pain keeps it within a safe boundary to avoid any danger outside of the invisible fence.
By now, you've guessed it — human beings have invisible fences, too (or what this book calls comfort zones)!
Just like the dog's fence, your comfort zone is "invisible" but serves its purpose very well. Your comfort zones keep you in places that are stable, predictable and familiar.
But unlike the dog, you are there by choice — maybe it's intentional or maybe its subconscious. However, the best thing about choice is you can always make a change.
STEPPING OUTSIDE YOUR COMFORT ZONE is a personal journey, written in an easy to understand chapters followed by reader reflections. All the ideas presented are there to move you to expand your comfort zone so that you can fulfill your purpose and experience the joy and inner peace that comes with it!
