I love security. I love my safe places. The less risk the better, right? Well not exactly. Yes there is a certain comfort in sticking with what you know. The problem is if you never leave that comfort zone, there’s very little room for growth.
There are a few things I have learned over the years. One is independence is crucial. Able bodied people must learn to function independently of others. It doesn’t have to be a thing of permanence. You should, however, not only establish that you can but also be comfortable with it. I am in no way saying abandon your circle. Just know how to function independently.
Secondly, get to know yourself. I mean really get to know yourself. Understand what makes you special and embrace it. When you know who you are then you are able to grow. You can honestly identify what’s great about yourself and what parts can be improved upon.
Lastly, take chances. Occasionally step outside of your comfort zone. If you are not getting the results you want, do not be afraid to make changes. You may be pleasantly surprised with the result. The alternative is wondering what could have been. The result of taking a chance is usually growth. You should be able to learn something from every move you make. Self improvements do not come from being stagnant. Take a chance and take a step towards a better you.
