Being comfortable is what most of us aim to be. We study, work and toil so we can buy not only what we need to live, but also what we need to feel comfortable. All of your choices in life are influenced by how much comfort they will give you in the present or future. While there is nothing wrong with that, don’t you think you are missing out on things that could have been?
We are so determined to stay content and happy that we sometimes forget that there is more to life than what we know now. You’ve seen inspirational quotes that tells you to do something new, but you still wouldn’t do it just because you will be forced to get out of the comfort of your cocoon. After all, you are almost sure that doing something new means you would have to sacrifice something as well.
But what if a small sacrifice is just what you need to achieve something else? You might not feel comfortable in a while, but you will have something more, like fulfilment in life.
If you feel you are too comfortable in where you are right now, then maybe it’s time for you to do something else. Go ahead and take the plunge. Read more on the infographic below on the importance of breaking out of your comfort zone and how to do it.
