Come out of Comfort Zone : A Tale of 2 seeds

Once upon a time, a person sowed two seeds in the lawn of his house. A few days passed by and the person took care of the seeds by giving them adequate water. After some time, one of the seeds was gathering all the courage and energy it needed to bust out of the earth's surface while the other was silently sitting behind and seeing what the first seed was attempting to do.

"Why do you want to go out? Don't go !!" said the second seed to the first. "Because as soon as you go out, you will have to face the cold, the wind, the sun, the heat and above all the neglect and wrath of the humans."

"Look at me" continued the second seed, "i am so comfortable here. It is all so safe and secure in here. You would be a fool if you go out inspite of knowing all these facts."

Well, the first seed who had been patiently listening till now, expressed its views as soon as it got a chance. 

"It is a waste of life if you have not done something different and new. It is a waste of time if you don't go out and learn something new. It is a waste of one's whole existence if you have not added some value in someone else's life. It is the easiest thing to stay in your comfort zone and feel relaxed about it, but neither do you learn anything nor do you help anyone. Such a life is meaningless. So, come out of your comfort zone and try and do something unique, something different from which others can benefit."

The second seed heard all this but, as expected, did not react to this statement.

So, both seeds did what each of them thought was the right thing to do. At the end of their individual lives, the first seed had to whither sun, wind, storms, heat and uncaring mankind but had added tonnes of oxygen to the environment and consumed tonnes of CO2 from the environment. He had given fruits and shade to so many people around the area.. and what happened to the second seed who lay comfortably inside the soil...that seed just got dissolved in the soil. Both the seeds met the same fate in the end, but the impact each of them created during their life time was completely different.

I want to take the help of this story and motivate all of you to come out of your comfort zones, do something unique and different in your lives, dont just be relaxed and comfortable thinking as to why should you do anything for anyone when your life is going on just fine..for the whole purpose of your existence is to face the challenges and change lives of people around you in a positive manner...

We can all do the same after achieving financial freedom. You can decide how you want to add value to others lives but you must do something. And if you are someone like me who used to think that we want to contribute but where is the time, then you are at the right place now. If you are stuck in the rat race, then me and my book "From Rat Race to Financial Freedom" comes with a single purpose to enlighten as many people as possible on the importance of freedom in their lives and how this single factor can then change the lives of people around you.

Go on...it is possible...you have to take the first step and then me, my blog and my book will tell you how to take it forward from there.

My job is done even if one of the readers can take a decision to get financially free and make a positive impact on someone else's life.
