Did you know that the number one answer to dying people when you ask them what is your biggest regret in life?
Their answer was – “I did not take enough risk.”
Was it because they lacked education? No. It is because they lack courage.
Courage helps you to be successful in life. It is never about your education. Even if you have a good education but don’t step out to face reality, you are not going anywhere.
Be courageous by stepping out of your comfort zone because your comfort zone keeps your dream dead. A comfort zone is a safe place. It is comfortable. It’s so secure that some people don’t bother to do something for themselves. You have to step out!
Here are two steps to step out of your comfort zone.
Step 1: Know what you want! When you know what you want, write it and dream about it. Don’t rely on textbook methods of accomplishing things. Use them as a guide but be courageous and always think outside the box.
Step 2: Have a courageous mindset. Don’t be afraid to explore. A fearless perspective wakes you up in the morning, ready to conquer the world. Action precedes clarity – this will only happen if you know what you want (see Step 1).
Are you willing to do anything to get what you want?
The key to becoming successful is not about your knowledge or education. It is your habit for action and implementation. You have to use that knowledge after you acquire it.
One of the main reasons why people are afraid to use their knowledge is the thought of failing. People change their minds a lot because they are so scared to fail.
My suggestion, fail and try again. Your failure is your friend because it teaches life lessons firsthand. When you fail, stand up right away. Do not dwell on your failure because that won’t help you.
Try, explore, fail, and try again. Never fear!
Leave your comfort zone and be courageous!
It’s not about school; it’s about trusting our Lord God!
“Trust in the Lord with all your heart and do not lean on your own understanding. In all your ways acknowledge Him, and He will make your paths straight.” (Proverbs 3:5-6)
Finally, when you become successful in life, don’t focus on success but on where that success is leading you!
God is the greatest!
