I guess Leo just said it all.
I always thought credit card was like some magic to me, buying things without paying cash like really! I mean that was when I was really young and then I realized that you actually have to pay the bill and now credit card is really more credit to me than magic.

Anyway, moving forward to 2014 and as you can see, not all the Cs are still valid. We move with time and we change and things get better or worst with or without choice. In a very common local slang, we like to say "lan lan suck thumb" which actually means "no choice", can't say a word with thumb in your mouth, just do it.
There many changes in life that we hardly have a choice to for example age and death. Ageing and death is inevitable as of now. We know we can look young, feel young but time doesn't stop that way. Even Michael Jackson died a few years back and we know some day basketball legend like Michael Jordan will die eventually and probably become a religion of its own.
But I am pretty sure there are things that can be changed according to our choices isn't it? Like how we always say your life your choice, you can choose to be healthy or fat or in fact anything.

What about the way of life? We all know what comfort zone is and from the word comfort it simply means doing things that makes you feel really good but what if my comfort is actually making myself feel uncomfortable? Is that still my comfort zone?
There are two main groups of people in this scenario, 1 - those who only likes to do things that they are good at. Things that make them feel good about themselves. Might not be the most satisfying thing but it is something they are good at and they enjoy doing the same thing over and over again, thus comfort zone.
Some typical example would be people staying in dead end jobs or bad relationship because changes is just too much to handle.
What about the opposite group? "Uncomfortable" people?
I choose to use the word "challenge" to express this other group. I can't exactly call them ambitious because the enjoyment of being challenged doesn't really means converting something into achievement. Some times it can even be just about the adrenaline rush you get.
This group of people enjoys being challenged, doing things different, solving puzzles, learning new things and meeting new people. I once went to a workshop which talks about learning environment and we all agreed that the best learning environment might actually be your uncomfortable zone. Comfortable makes you slow and lazy (although happy) because you know what is happening where else comfort zone forces you to be alert, to be ready and that is the only way to survive and you know what they say about what doesn't kills you makes you stronger
Some typical example would be people who likes to pick up girls, trying to turn lesbians straight, people who always pick up different sports etc. As for me I love the excitement of job changing. LOL.
I wouldn't say one is better than the other or anyone makes a person a better person. End of the day I guess it is just a way of life choosing how you prefer to lead your life. I guess what is the most important is that you are happy with your choices. We make choices in life, good ones, bad ones and those that makes us regret and suffers for years. Some people prefers easy life, some loves a life which is full of challenges because overcoming each challenges makes you feel like you are on the top of the world!
|I really hate this kind of challenge|
I love a good challenge no doubt, picking up a hot girl, heading a new project, helping someone to quit smoking, playing a good game of basketball or solving a good puzzle but there will always be some battles that we can't win. Always pick you battle wisely and if need to, lose a battle in order to win the war!
I am quite sure he didn't say this first but there you go. Something to think about in life. To run or to fight? Pick your battles wisely people.
