Adventurous Over Being Ordinary

Imagined limitations can sometimes be the only obstacles in the way of you achieving success with your goals. Negative thinking, though not the preferable option over positive thinking is the chosen option, most of the time. Comparing your ‘out-of-my-comfort-zone’ dreams and your life to the dreams and the life of the majority of people around you can hinder accomplishments too. I think negative a lot of times – so much that in most of those cases, I need someone to talk me out of such a state of mind. My negativity usually affects my emotional state but not my productivity – this is not a advantage. No form of negativity is an advantage. The point that I should highlight is that I have moved beyond that stage where comparing myself with others, non-encouraging comments and negative thinking affected my productivity. There are lots of beneficial opportunities that can only be tapped into by those who move outside of their comfort zone, by the adventurous ones who know that failure and rejection are possibilities, but yet still want to try. No matter how old, poor, rich, healthy or popular you are, if you think of a great idea, put that idea into action. Don’t think of why your idea will not work out or how others are doing just fine by living simple, ‘non-out-of-my-comfort-zone’ lives. Here is a quote by the Late Steve Jobs that I found out about and which I like: “Here’s to the crazy ones, the misfits, the rebels, the troublemakers, the round pegs in the square holes… the ones who see things differently — they’re not fond of rules… You can quote them, disagree with them, glorify or vilify them, but the only thing you can’t do is ignore them because they change things… they push the human race forward, and while some may see them as the crazy ones, we see genius, because the ones who are crazy enough to think that they can change the world, are the ones who do.” I definitely want to be “crazy enough” to believe in and go after those dreams of mine that seem unique and necessary. I want to keep challenging myself to move out of my comfort zone so that I can achieve my dreams. I want to keep being adventurous. How about you? I am hoping that your answer is “Me too!” 🙂

Love & Peace,

Chiamaka.
