What’s The Risk Of Inaction?

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?
