How prone are you to ‘the curse of comfort’? That place where you feel good, feel comfortable, and maybe even feel you’ve arrived. It’s an alluring destination. But I think a dangerous one.
Complacency can creep up on us. Our routines can become ruts. We start coasting through life unaware that we’ve grown flabby on familiarity.
Don’t get me wrong. I like to feel comfortable. I enjoy the familiar. Sometimes.
But I’m also aware that although change is inevitable, growth is optional.
Sometimes I need a wake-up call. Someone to rattle my cage and help me overcome the curse of comfort.
You see, it’s so easy to stick to what you know. To play safe. But perhaps the biggest risk to us leading fulfilling lives is when we stop taking risks. Have our comfort blankets become straight jackets?
Only you can decide, which is why your answer to this question could be incredibly revealing.
‘Where do life’s opportunities really lie? Inside or outside your comfort zone?’
It’s good to take care. But do you know what?
It’s also good to take risks.
Until next time….
