Good Morning! A few moments ago while I was laying down and feeling lazy, I thought about everything that has occurred in the last couple of months and even though I’ve become a stronger person who is learning how to leave situations that stunt my growth and mental well-being, I still let my fear of failure/rejection stop me from taking chances that could lead me to where I want to be. I started thinking about why that is and I realized that it’s because I’ve become comfortable with life. I am not content with the way things are but comfort equals predictability which means that I cannot fail if I don’t step outside the box and try new things. If I stay in the same place I am now, setbacks won’t occur but progression is eliminated as well.
I went as far as to delay my road test (again) because I wasn’t ready to take that chance and fail it again. I kept focusing on those moments when I failed at something and how horrible I felt afterwards and I didn’t want to feel that way again so I didn’t even try. For me to accomplish the major goals in my life, I have to step outside of my comfort zone and realize that failure, while at times can be inevitable, should be used as a motivator to keep pushing towards my goals instead of a deterrent that holds me back. It is all about perspective and right now, this little “comfort zone” box that I’ve built around myself is confining and I need to break out of it to follow my passion and truly live and make the most out of this life. I know it won’t be easy but the greater the risk, the greater the reward. Besides, being “comfortable” isn’t what I signed up for when I decided to live the life that I wanted because nothing worth having comes easy. I encourage all of you to step outside your “comfort zones” and live the life that you dreamed of for yourself. It is a scary thing but settling is even scarier and isn’t good for the soul. I wish you all success😀
Always remember to love and live luxuriously!
