So, a lot of people feel scared in life. Scared to start new things, scared to approach other people, scared to take risks etc. Everyone wants to feel safe in their comfort zone. You see people don’t want to loose what they have in their hands. But, to get big success you have to play big in life.
Now, the thing is you have to play big in life. You can’t afford to worry about small issues. You need to see the big picture. After all, we all have one life and we can’t waste it by not doing what we are supposed to.
Jordan Peterson on pursuing something Meaningful
The best example of where people feel scared to take leaps is when they want to pursue a business but can’t. This could be the case when they are trapped in a job they don’t like and have responsibilities like a family to take care of. It could be that they are scared that they might fail if they don’t succeed and might end up loosing everything.
You have to play big in life
Everyone successful has played big in life. When Mark Zuckerberg started Facebook, he decided to drop out of Harvard. Who could have even thought of putting their degree from a University as prestigious as Harvard on the side to start their business. Its scary to think that someone actually thought like that.
Its true that when you have responsibilities then you can’t just walk away from them. But at the same time, you need to work out a plan to make it work and follow it gradually until its a success.
Now, it is true that people feel hesitant to step outside their comfort zones. People feel hesitant when there is a lot to loose.
But the thing is that when you don’t pursue what you think you should, then you live your life regretting not taking that action. So, by staying where you are and not taking any action you should know that you are harming yourself. Also, you realize that you can’t really hold on to anything in this world.
Anything can happen and you can loose things you thought you never would. So, the sense of security is only an illusion in our minds. There really is no sense of security and anything can happen at any time. People are loosing their jobs, their families, their money in real time.
Life is unpredictable. Anything can happen. Time is precious. You have to act before its too late.
So, realize that time is important and that you have limited amount of it to make your dreams come true.
