“To stay truly alive, we need to choose courage over comfort so that we keep growing, climbing, and challenging ourselves, and that means not getting stuck thinking we’ve found heaven when we’re simply sitting on the nearest plateau.”

~Susan A. David, PhD


As you travel on your journey of life, you will sometimes find yourself in a time of comfort where you have achieved goals you set out to achieve and are feeling pretty happy with things. When these times occur, there are two important things to consider:

  1. Reflect on the moment and what has been achieved, give yourself credit for your own strength and talents (without arrogance), and be grateful for all those who helped you along the way. Take time to thank people as well as to celebrate and feel the positive emotions that achievement can bring.
  2. DON’T STOP MOVING FORWARD! Despite how good this moment may feel, you must keep pushing yourself to take everything that you’ve learned to this point and apply it to new goals, aspirations, people to help and things to achieve. The world never stops moving forward, so what you’ve achieved today will not keep you successful and content for long. This is merely a plateau on which to gather your strength and courage to ascend to the next part of your life’s mission.

Life is a journey that only ends when we die. You’re still alive, truly alive – keep moving! Choose courage over comfort.
