Most people have heard of Maslow's hierarchy of needs it is a motivational theory in psychology comprising a five-tier model of human needs.
From the bottom of the hierarchy upwards, the needs are: physiological, safety, love and belonging, esteem, and self-actualization, but I believe his quote about growth is even more important, “You will either step forward into growth, or you will step backward into safety.”
The dreaded comfort zone stops most people from discovering their true potential. You can start overcoming comfort by asking yourself "What are questions", like what if? I looked for a meaningful exercise routine and tried it for a week. What If? I read an article in my field for 15 minutes before I go to sleep. As Thomas Edison said about his electrical light bulb experiment, “I have not failed. I’ve just found 10,000 ways that won’t work.”
Find your light bulb.
