There’s a story about a man who was looking for his keys under the streetlamp. He had dropped them somewhere else, but the light under the lamp was better. So he ended up searching only within his circle of light.

This is what our comfort zone often does to us. We stop looking beyond.

Here, Brian Johnson together with T. Harv Eker remind us how important it is for us to step out of our safe and comfortable zone and why.

“Here’s an equation I want you to remember for the rest of your life: CZ = WZ. It means your “comfort zone” equals your “wealth zone.” By expanding your comfort zone, you will expand the size of your income and wealth zone.”

~ T. Harv Eker from Secrets Of The Millionaire Mind

That’s genius.

Is comfort your priority? Um…If so, you’re in trouble…

EXPAND!!! And know that “The more comfort becomes your priority, the more contracted you become with fear.”

As Mark Twain so brilliantly reminds us: “Twenty years from now you will be more disappointed by the things you didn’t do than by the ones you did do. So throw off the bowlines. Sail away from the safe harbor. Catch the trade winds in your sails. Explore. Dream. Discover.”

And, while we’re on the subject of sailing, remember the wisdom: “Ships in harbor are safe, but that’s not what ships are built for.”

May we expand our comfort zones, become all that we are destined to be, circulate a beautiful amount of wealth in the world and create freedom in all aspects of our lives!

“Comfort kills! If your goal in life is to be comfortable, I guarantee two things. First, you will never be rich. Second, you will never be happy. Happiness doesn’t come from living a lukewarm life, always wondering what could have been. Happiness comes as a result of being in our natural state of growth and living up to our fullest potential.”
