Being married to a motivational speaker can be eye-opening at times. I've seen Kelly repeatedly take on challenges, often outside her comfort zone, at warp speed. It may simply be an inborn trait for Kelly to blow comfort zones to smithereens, but I've never seen her take an incremental approach to expanding her comfort zone in pursuit of a goal.
I recently came across this video, by Steven Iwersen, that advocates expanding your comfort zone slowly to reach goals. Maybe Kelly is an anomoly, and Steven has a good point when it comes to most people.

Is explosive change possible for the average Joe?[schema type=”review” url=”http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=WzfGxaRagZM&feature=youtu.be” name=”Is Explosive Change Possible?” description=”Successful people do not reach their goals because they got out of their comfort zones or by taking short cuts.
