Most people stay where they are for many reasons, number one reason is because they are comfortable in what they do and where they are.
Not to say that this retiree did not work hard, he did, and deserved to get where he got.
Taking a closer look at this gentlemans career, I could see that he never knew comfort zone, he didnít like sight of it or smell of it. He was constantly challenging himself, learning new things, going to night school, and taking advantage of every type of training his company offered.
He did not work harder than any of us, he only worked smarter, his pro-active habits lead him down road to success and ended with a happy ending.
To summarize this article, comfort zone is dangerous because it is holding us back, holding us back from unleashing potential we know we have.
Learning new things and taking on new responsibility is very important to our career, it makes us more productive, which leads to bottom line, more money! And will undoubtedly open doors of opportunity which we never would have know existed!
