There is comfort in doing nothing. There is comfort in dreaming big dreams and visualizing grand successes without moving an inch from the bed. When we always give our 30-40% efforts and not 100% to achieve a goal or task, there is comfort in knowing that if we had given 100%, we would’ve succeeded brilliantly! Doing nothing keeps our idea of self-alive. Dreams become vehicles which transport us from the reality of our existence into the realms of the magical world. A world where we are the stars and the universe revolves around us.
There is discomfort in acting on our dreams. Waking up every day with determination to work towards the fulfillment of our dreams is difficult. Completing one boring/irritating tasks one at a time, gathering the self-discipline to set priorities and acting on them, burning the midnight oil, making tough choices to achieve our end objectives is difficult. These are reality checks which eventually dawn on us and more often than not, we stick with the comfortable. Fear of the unknown, self-doubt, peer pressures, the desire to achieve higher social status cloud our minds. And we do what we do best. We do nothing.
Travelling has always been my dream and it’s like ecstasy for me. Just the mere thought of going out of my box of existence was enough to get the adrenaline rushing in my veins. It could be music for someone, for someone it could be dancing or painting, for me it’s always been exploring. As of today, I have been to around 14 countries and 24 states in India.
