Do Not Lie to Yourself. We have to be honest about what we want and take risks rather than lie to ourselves and make excuses to stay in our comfort zone. “Roy T. Bennett”
The comfort zone is a beautiful place, but nothing ever grows there! It coddled you as a good friend but it is your unfriendly friend! Your comfort zone rub you your desired future! Breaking out of this comfortable and secured lifestyle means physical and emotional pain. When we take on a new situation, or accept change, we sacrifice that feeling of ease and safety and take a tough life. Believe it or not, the truth is, most things we like most are the most dangerous things for us. You love to drink juices, soft drinks and the likes, have you ever wondered for a while how these things were produced? Leaving them for a while might just give you a better life.
You love comfort, you love to be satisfied, you love to procrastinate, you love to have pleasure, good sleep, watching movies e.t.c. If you are given the chance, you can even be sleeping 17 hours in a day. You love to stay idle doing nothing, you love to hang around playing with friends, you love to be praised and are not ready to take them blame for doing what is right. Others are doing it, right! You know if you don’t, then you will be the talk, enemies will emerge and people will hate you, we all don’t love that feeling, it is our comfort zone but we have to leave it.
There is prize for every greatness, that is, if you desire to be one. If you don’t sacrifice for what you want now, WHAT YOU WANT will later become the sacrifice. And you will have to SETTLE for a life you DO NOT want. If you are not willing to SACRIFICE now, for what you want, then you can guarantee that LATER, you will be making sacrifices for many things you don’t want. If you don’t work for it NOW, you will be working for someone who did work for it, later. If you don’t put in the blood, sweat and tears NOW.
Sacrifice your time, sacrifice your nights out, give up your treats, If you don’t give up everything that is holding you back, that will be reflecting back to you in your FUTURE. That’s life for you.
Life will not give you what you want but what you deserve. Success will never come easy. GREAT results will NEVER come easy. You might get lucky. You might get better results. But long term, success requires SACRIFICE. EFFORT and DISCIPLINE. Understand that better is the enemy of best. Self-discipline does not mean limiting yourself. It’s ability to make a decision and take action. The good news is, you rarely have to sacrifice anything that will give you long term pleasure. Almost always, all you really have to give up are things that are dragging you down. The things that do nothing for your future.
