Expanding My Comfort Zone–G8 Expedition, Minakami

Expanding My Comfort Zone G8 Expedition(reflection)

–@Minakami

For the expedition this year, I expanded my comfort zone a lot, which is also the aim of this year. A lot of things are actually really challenging for me since I am afraid of height. However, for the first day, I challenged myself by going every activities. For the first day, we got canyoning in the morning and rafting in the afternoon. Canyoning is actually more challenging in general. However, since jumping from high places takes away a lot of energy, and I did not have a lot of it in the afternoon, I actually did fine in canyoning, since we still have two jumping in rafting. Even through I jumped both in rafting, I procrastinate a lot.

HERE IS A VIDEO OF I AM DOING CONYANING

MY FIRST JUMP IN RAFTING

However, after the jump, I feel happy and confident, and I don’t think it is hard as I thought it will be.

I think in real life, challenging ourself are very important because this will make you more confident, which is important in real life because it will make you always stay positive and inspire others. This is an element for leadership.

Also, after you did a thing that you are not comfortable with, you feel good. In the other hand, if you didn’t do it, you will be afraid if it more and more.

Lastly, it will be a good practice of controlling your fear.
