“You have to motivate yourself with challenges. That’s how you know you’re still alive. Once you start doing only what you’ve proven you can do, you’re on the road to death.”
Tried and tested, a theory we stick to as if our lives depended on it. We stick to our level of education, broken relationships, abusive partners, careers and so much more, because we know how to handle these. We know what to expect. Our fear of the unknown weakens us. Even if it is something better than what we have at this very moment.
How often do you step out of your comfort zone and take a chance on new challenges? Getting your diploma, finishing high school, applying for that job advertised in the company you are working for?
You have proven for all of this time you can do what you are doing right now. People around you have seen it. You are established, seen as a pillar, never changing. However, for all of us there is a challenge ahead. We never take the leap of faith because we think we can’t.
Step out and meet your challenge head-on. Make a decision to tackle your obstacle, your challenge, your fear. Don’t stop dreaming. It is what keeps you alive. Go on, lest you die.
