We like to be in our comfort zone....until we are faced by cross roads.....yeah, I consider these as cross roads...as we always have more than one way to chose from.
More often, 99.9% of times, that right path takes us out of our comfort zone. Comfort Zone... where we are secured, we are safe mentally, financially, socially...The challenge is to go out of that comfort zone and follow, what they call 'your heart'.
Those, who ignore that voice in their head, and choose to be safe within the comfort zone are considered as smart and practical. Those who go out of their comfort zone, choose the 'right path' according to their values and understanding of life, are considered to be foolish, stupid, crazy and so on. They are considered so until they prove themselves successful walking on that path. And that success would require persistence, consistency in order to establish integrity of character. To achieve such integrity, they have to walk the path till the end...accepting and facing whatever it brings along with it.
Bottom line is... it may be crazy not to sell the soul to secure the future... but at the end, all the pain and struggle is worth it. To save the soul.... :))
