too much safety is dangerous

We have tendency to grow comfortable and predictable with existing conditions.. even those undesirable to us. in the workplace we end up tolerating dead end jobs professions we dislike, and bosses that mistreat us.we resist making changes cause we fear the unknown.
"Do you dare to dream?"

there will be time to find something that will stretch your talents more.have faith in yourself. when your instincts tempt you to take risk on something that is not life and death matter, than do so with confidence..

the greatest risk may not be in leaving your job..don't wait for the right time to quit. there is never a right time. make calculated risk..smart moves.

the risk of taking action can be lesser than the risk of inaction. life is a perilous journey at best. there is a time you have to be courageous and dive into the unknown. when your inner voice is telling you to take a risk, its best to do so even your rational mind may be telling you otherwise.following the tried and proven path may appear safest but in some ways creating your own trail will bring more adventure and satisfaction.

if the path you take in life feels really safe then its probably is not the one that will bring the best out of you. you might even regret not attempting the ones less travelled. the moral of risk taking is emphasized in the old adage: "someone who tries to do something and fails a lot is a lot better off than the person who tries to do no nothing new and succeeds".

quoted from "101 really important things you already know, but keep forgetting"

With this, i took a leap of faith in my life from the path I trailed over the past 3.5 years. Jumped out really close to 100% out of my comfort zone I created over my entire 7+ years of my career and will not look back. Will not care what others will say, just turn around and slam the door behind. (sounds familiar? Refer to soundtrack "Let it go" from Frozen, pun intended :p )

I hope this will help motivate and inspire friends or anyone out there who felt like they got stuck somewhere in life and needed encouragement to make the jump. Just believe in your instinct. Well, i should survive to tell about my 'jump' soon enough :)
