Take stock of whether you are living a life directed by your hopes, dreams, and passions or a life driven by your fears and insecurities.
Anxiety and self-doubt have a tricky way of convincing us that it is better to stay comfortable, safe, and small rather than risk upsetting the status quo. But by being afraid to step out into the uncomfortable unknown, we limit our capacity for personal growth and fulfillment. We end up living a familiar life doing the same things, having the same relationships, and experiencing the same results, which often are disappointing or frustrating, because nothing new can ever be generated by repeating the same old patterns and behaviors.
Be courageous. A life rich with adventure in which you feel truly alive is ultimately worth any and all discomfort every time.
The comfort zone is a place where nothing new ever grows.
