No matter what goals and dreams you desire, there’s a good chance it’s going to mean reaching beyond what you believe yourself to be capable of.
This fine line between what we think we can achieve and cannot is often referred to ask one’s comfort zone. The comfort zone is our living, work, and social environment that we have grown habituated to. It determines the type of profession we have, the people we relate with and the lifestyle we adopt.

- Procrastination: I will try to achieve success someday.
- Indecision: I don’t know what the right decision to take right now is.
- Fear of Failure: What if I make changes and they won’t work out.
- Rationalizing: I am getting a higher salary than my friends, what else do I want.
- Low Self Respect: I don’t deserve anything better.

If we clearly and brilliantly imagine ourselves succeeding by frequent repetitions and emotional crash, we will create a new picture of ourselves.
