I've had friends openly admit to me before that they've stayed with someone purely because they were just that, they were comfortable in the relationship, and they were scared for what would happen if they went after what they really wanted.
And I don't really want to just talk about relationships here, I'm talking about everything. I'm talking about the life you create, the place you call 'home', your health, the friends you surround yourself with, your job, the list is endless.
For me, this is a really strange mind-set that I can't get my head around. Why would you not want something that makes you excited? Why would you not want something that makes you incredibly happy? Why would you not want something that makes you work even harder for the best results possible?
ARE YOU REALLY HAPPY, OR JUST REALLY COMFORTABLE?
I'm totally guilty of this myself, but if you're sat there saying 'oh I'll do it tomorrow', you're already settling for less than you want.
If there's one thing I've learned in the last year, it's that timing is never going to be perfect. Waiting is never going to be the answer.
Again, I'm guilty of this too, but I feel that we're all terrified of change, of taking risks, and of failing at something that we're trying to achieve.
But I guess we can't really live like that.
I'm not trying to say that our lives need to be perfect before we're happy, because nothing will ever be perfect. But, it's about changing the things you can until you're perfectly happy.
Does that make sense?
TEN YEARS FROM NOW, MAKE SURE YOU CAN SAY THAT YOU CHOSE YOUR LIFE, YOU DIDN'T SETTLE FOR IT.
