“To think is easy. To act is difficult. To act as one thinks is the most difficult of all.” Johann von Goethe
“Believe, when you are most unhappy, that there is something for you to do in the world. So long as you can sweeten another’s pain, life is not in vain.” Helen Keller
“Do your little bit of good where you are; it’s those little bits of good put together that overwhelm the world.” Archbishop Desmond Tutu
Expand your Comfort Zone
From birth a baby elephant is tied with a rope to a wooden post planted in the ground leaving it confined to very small space. Soon the elephant learns that he cannot break the rope. This space defined by the rope becomes the elephant’s comfort zone.
As the elephant grows up it could easily break the rope, but it does not even try because it was conditioned as a baby to think that it could not break free. As a result, the large elephant remains restricted and confined in a small space… Contd Below

“Who looks outside, dreams. Who looks inside, awakens.” Carl Jung
Expand your Comfort Zone… Contd
This metaphor can be used to describe what happens to human beings as we become trapped in a comfort zone. The elephant can easily break the rope and we can easily leave our comfort zone. Just as the elephant’s space determines what it can do, our comfort zone determines what we are capable of achieving.
In order to expand our potential and succeed in life, we must expand our comfort zone into unfamiliar territory.
You will never realize what you are truly capable of achieving if you remain in your comfort zone. Via GreatMindsInspire
“A life spent making mistakes is not only more honorable, but more useful than a life spent doing nothing.” George Bernard Shaw
“Things to do today…inhale, exhale, inhale. Aaaaah” Gautama Buddha
