We get up five days a week and head off to the job we, at best tolerate, at worst hate. We do this because everyone else does it so it must be the right thing.
What we perceive as our safety net, our comfort zone.
A friend of mine asked me recently what I think about our comfort zones. Well here is what I think:
I think that we get entirely too comfortable for our own good. I think we need to shake things up a little. If you are the kind of person who shudders at the thought of something different, then you need to start small, but you need to do something! If you never try anything different, then how on earth will you ever discover what – or who – you really love?
I’m not advocating you quit your humdrum job and travel the world (although if you want to, go right ahead – or at least make plans and take steps.)
Be an adventurer – even if on a small scale. Open your eyes, your heart and your mind. See what this amazing world has to offer you.
Get passionate! Get curious! Get lively! Get excited!
Opportunities come to us from the least expected places. If you don’t peek through the door, you will never find them.
Be greedy – grab for those opportunities when they come along, and don’t let them go.
Stop worrying about what others think – my favourite quote ever: “What other people think of you is none of your business.”
It’s truly all up to you – create your own luck, and live your own life.
