Thrilling Tuesday: Get Out Of Your Comfort Zone

Alyson Campbell

“I’ve missed more than 9000 shots in my career. I’ve lost almost 300 games. 26 times, I’ve been trusted to take the game winning shot and missed. I’ve failed over and over and over again in my life. And that is why I succeed.” – Michael Jordan

Getting out of your comfort zone isn’t meant to be an easy task. If it were, more people would live their lives adventurously without letting their lives get stuck in a routine. Here are a few adventurous people that may help inspire you to get out and do something you normally wouldn’t do:

IF Ferdinand Magellan didn’t lead the first circumnavigation of the world to find a shorter, westward route to the East…

THEN his fleet would have never finished and he wouldn’t have found the Philippines during the journey.


IF Gertrude Bell, known as the Queen of the Desert and Shaper of Nations, did not lead negotiations after World War I to shape the Middle East…

THEN she wouldn’t have almost single-handedly found what is now Iraq – she is now buried there as well. 


IF Nellie Bly did not make it her life’s mission to prove that women can do anything that men can…

THEN she would never have traveled 25,000 miles in 72 days, with nothing but her clothes, a few pairs of underwear and toiletries. She would also have never paved the way for women like Gertrude Bell, and also travel bloggers today.


IF Willis Haviland Carrier didn’t submit drawings of his air conditioning system as a response to a quality problem at the Sackett-Wilhelms Lithographing & Publishing Company in 1902…

THEN we wouldn’t have any AC system today with temperature control, humidity control, circulation and ventilation control, and air cleansing features. 


IF Walt Disney gave up after being fired by a newspaper editor, filing for bankruptcy multiple times, and being rejected by the City of Anaheim to build Disneyland…

THEN none of this would ever exist!

Happy Thrilling Tuesday!
