There are some categories of people that know what they want from life, they have plans, visions, ideas and they have started pursuing it, but as a result of comfort they have decided to stay put at a certain level. They know what they want, they have set off and started working on it, they have started achieving part of their desires and then for no reason they decide to stop growing, they decide to stop moving, they decide to take a break and stay comfortably at the level where they are currently.
They are actually due for the next level but they are afraid of taking risks because they don’t know where these risks might land them to. At this stage, they understand that they have not gotten to the level they could term as being successful and for these reason they see themselves as being unsuccessful. Rather than taking risk, they seek for security. They know what they are supposed to do, but they are afraid of doing it because they don’t want to leave a comfort zone to an unknown zone.
If you fall in this category, this is for you.
ACTION STEP: At this stage, you have gone far, but you must realise that you can go further and get better and become more successful. Look critically at yourself, what is stopping you from moving to the next level? What risks do you need to take to get to the next level and what would be the steps you need to take to ignite these risks? What information do you need to have and what experience do you need to gain? Do you need to write any professional exam or take any training? Who do you need to meet that would assist in ensuring that you move to the next level?
These questions need to be answered and actions need to be taken on these actions.
Have it at the back of your mind that successful people don’t look for security, they look for problems, throw themselves at it, solve it, make our world a better place in the process and they become successful. Inculcate in you the habit of aiming higher, always look at the top, and don’t look down on yourself. .Don’t give up, don’t seek for security and comfort, seek for opportunities and new challenges. You are destined to succeed, if you believe you would get there.
