Its been said time and time again, that nobody has ever achieved greatness within their comfort zone. This rings true in almost all facets of life. Whether you gauge your great success in life on your career, your finances, your personal life, or your health and fitness, you’ll never achieve greatness in any of these facets by sticking within your comfort zone. Making mistakes and failing is what allows us to learn and better ourselves along the road to Success. If you never leave your comfort zone, you never take risks, if you never take risks, you minimize failure and in turn you minimize your ability to learn. If you can’t learn, you’ll never possess the knowledge and skills needed to truly be successful.
Get out of your comfort zone, if you’re shy, talk to new people. If you’re out of shape and self conscious, try exercising, whatever getting out of your comfort zone means to you, try it. Once you get out of your comfort zone, you will make mistakes, you will fail, and if you treat these failures as a learning experience and learn rather than getting discouraged, you’ll be closer to success on the next attempt, and the next after that. Doing this over and over again, trying, failing, and learning is what allows us to inch towards success, bit by bit, until we’ve accomplished something we can truly be proud of.
Now, go on and pursue your Climb to Success.
All good things come to an end right. After spending a week in what is basically a paradise it’s now time to return home to the hustle and bustle of daily life.
As much as a vacation is an amazing feeling, and you can really distance yourself mentally and get into a true state of relaxation, it’s nice to come home. By the end of every vacation, I always feel ready to come home. As strange as it is I end up missing work. I don’t feel like I’m getting bogged down, or worried about the amount of work piling up, I just eventually start to miss the day to day hustle and bustle I’m used to once I’ve spent a couple days relaxing.
If you truly love what you do like I do, I’d think that you too may end up missing the satisfaction you get from a job well done after a solid week of leaving your mind completely at ease. This week of not a worry on my mind, and never without a cold drink in my hand has left me fully relaxed, fully recharged, and ready to come back at full strength and not risk burning out anytime soon.
If you can’t step back and relax and enjoy some time to yourself, then you should. It’ll inevitably help you along your own Climb to Success.
Until next time,
This week I’m out of town taking the opportunity to rest my mind and keep the burnout at Bay. This vacation is more than just a test though, a vacation to me is a time to consumer information without distraction. A great time to read a new book, meet new people, and become a better version of yourself, all without the common distractions you face at home.
Have a great week everybody!
