There are risks and costs to a program of action, but they are far less than the long range risks and costs of comfortable inaction. – John F. Kennedy
What’s the cost of your inaction today? How long will we stay in our comfort zone, essentially fooling self? Time for some self-examination and truth telling!
Here are some ways in which we might be selling ourselves short:
- Not expressing love because we feel shy or lazy.
- Not saying yes to an opportunity because we’re afraid.
- Saying yes to too much work because work is our comfort zone!
- Being lazy about our health because staying healthy can be hard work.
Notice that a ‘comfort zone’ comes in many varieties, let’s be aware of them, and assert our will, for what is truly good for us.
Today I awaken! I act when necessary. I AM hopeful for my future well-being and act accordingly. I banish fear. I embrace uncertainty. I AM ready for change. I thrive, no matter what! God is my partner so why should I worry?
