Many a false step was made by standing still. – Fortune cookie
And running in place.
We fail to ask ourselves what we are putting off out of fear? We fail to confront those dark corners of nagging frustration and desperation in our lives, and ask why? We hold back on pursuing our deeper desires and stand still while the world keeps moving ahead.
Fear is the factor that keeps us stuck, keeps us on the treadmill going nowhere special. Fear demands we remain in our safe place, our comfort zone of disillusionment and discontent. Until we confront fear and act, we keep running in place. Until we step beyond the safety zone, we remain standing still.
