“A dream is your creative vision for your life in the future. You must break out of your current comfort zone and become comfortable with the unfamiliar and the unknown.”
– Denis Waitley
We all like getting comfortable. We enjoy living and doing things in comfort. In this day and age of instant gratification, we can quickly get the things we want.
For instance, with just a push of a button on a mobile app or a click on your computer mouse, you can have your food and groceries delivered to you. There’s no need to stand in line all hot and sweaty.
Thanks to the Internet, you can get practically anything you like delivered straight to your doorstep.
Living in a comfortable bubble
We tend to live in our little bubbles when we get too comfortable. At first, we may feel happy, satisfied, and safe in our little safe zone. We can do things that don’t stress us out or make us anxious.
Eventually, however, we become bored and uninspired. We become unhappy. Our dreams get relegated to the back burner.
But many people still don’t want to rock the boat even though they’re unhappy. Does this sound like you?
You want to leave things the way they are. You’ve gotten too used to comfort that the mere thought of leaving it to go do something uncomfortable leaves you in a cold sweat.
What does it mean for you?
It means you’ve changed. And it’s not for the better, either. You’ve become a scared little mouse where your dreams once consumed you. Always afraid your small block of cheese will get stolen right from under your nose.
I will share part two of this article tomorrow. Until then, stay safe, and keep the faith.
