Everyone develops habits and routines, some of them are good and others are bad. Some of these patterns get us nowhere, and they leave us feeling kind of pathetic…

  • Do you ever have the feeling that your current job was a terrible mistake, or that you’re just not making enough money?
  • Do you wonder what things could have been like if you had found other solutions to perform your day-to-day duties?
  • Do you wish you were more social, had more friends, were a more exciting individual, and had more fun?
  • Do you regret not asking that girl/guy out, going in for the kiss, not saying “hi” to a particular stranger, or not making eye contact with that beautiful person who probably wanted your number?
  • Do you feel like you just can’t take more on in life, so you’re required to be stagnant, continue your routine just how you are, and accept your unsatisfactory existence?

If you answered yes to any of the above questions, you may consider stepping outside of the comfort zone, that you’ve been taking for granted.

Your comfort zone has no feelings. It does not care about you, and it’s certainly not going to help you find the woman of your dreams, the job of your life, or the happiness you desire!

To achieve true success, and satisfaction in life you cannot not be a victim of your own inhibitions.

You need to step outside of your comfort zone, and when you get back into it (ig. “Yay I have a job, again!”) to step right back out before you let the material realm grasp hold of your psyche, yet again.

We’re designed to evolve, grow, adapt, accelerate, survive, overcome, succeed, and/or continue even when we fail. If you’re not either learning something new at your job, enjoying every single moment of it, or overflowing with cash, your best bet is to attempt to use your job as a stepping stone elsewhere.

You don’t have to have a relationship to enjoy meeting new men/women. It’s amazing how much you can learn about yourself, and the opportunities that arise when approaching strangers, finding common interests, and becoming friends with new people.

When life gives you lemons, try asking for an orange! Your life is what you make of it, and if you find yourself blaming society for your problems, keep in mind it functions fine with, or without you.

Don’t get dragged down by pessimism. Don’t stare regret in the face. Ask and you shall receive. If not, ask again, try asking someone else. Approach the situation differently. What can you do to ensure a positive outcome for yourself and your community? Make a difference — don’t be indifferent!

Make the most out of every opportunity. Plant seeds of “luck” by keeping an eye open to new potentials, discussing them openly, and harvesting them when the time is right.

Once, I suffered from my own inhibitions, not today!
