For so many years, I was in my shell as if I was allergic to the external environment; I hated coming out of my comfort zone.
I didn’t want to battle my fears or deal with negativities and its related issues that can make me ‘go gaga’; like discouragements, unnecessary criticisms, failure, denials and drama from people who think they are better than everyone else.
Of course I wished there’s more about me than I thought, I wished I can grow, I wished I can let others know what I can do, and I wished I will have numerous opportunities to make things happen and enjoy the beauty of life, but that’s all I did; wish, wish and wish, I wasn’t ready to do what it takes to make my wishes come true. My comfort meant so much.
But along the line, I came to the realization that, until I come out to work for what I want, I will never have them, and that almost everyone living their dreams encounter those hurdles, too, but they just learn to deal with them; I learnt this truth the hard way.
That’s when I chose to go all out for my growth, shine, purpose and fulfillment, rather than ‘enjoy in my comfort zone’. And I’ve never regretted taking that step; it has been worth it.
You cannot harness your limitless potential, achieve your dreams, make things happen or impact the world if your comfort means everything to you. So, yeah, come out of your shell; face the fears, deal with the obstacles and live your dream life.
