Comfort Zone Can Be Hazardous to Your Health

Comfort Zone Can Be Hazardous to Your Health

Having something to look forward to every day keeps the passion, adrenaline, energy, and motivation going. Doing things differently and changing the game once in a while will make you better and stronger. I have a friend will call him Mike, who’s had the same job for 20+ years. My friend is making $10.00 an hour more 20 years of service, which translates to $.50 cents a year.
Same job, Same drive to work, and same habits translates to boring and routine. Mike is currently unhealthy and  unhappy with his life, what a surprise. But he has retirement and a steady paycheck, so what’s the problem?
 Having a new goal every week forces you to think differently and ignites the creative part of the mind.
I will give you an example. I use to have a cushy job making good money. I would work 20 hrs a week and get paid for 40. Great work environment and great benefits all around. But I realize I wasn’t growing spiritually, mentally or physically. I was becoming complacent not doing anything productive.
People thought I was the luckiest man alive fo having this job. But deep down inside I wasn’t happy. So I did something crazy, I quit. My friends and family thought I was losing it. Having money and a nice retirement doesn’t always equal to happiness.
Jim Carrey the actor once said I wish everyone would find money, fame and fortune so they realize it doesn’t bring happiness. Live your life the way you want and not how someone else wants it.
Start changing your habits and slowly but surely you will start growing. Being uncomfortable equals results. When you feel fear and anxiety while trying something new that means your on the right track. If you keep going and don’t stop eventally the fear will wear off, it has too.
While my decision to leave my cushy job was very unpopular at the time, it was the best move of my life. I have grown tremendously and in the process helping everyone around me become better in some way, shape or form. Life is good!!!!!
