Comfortably Numb.


In the long run, doing alright is worse than being in a bad situation. ‘Doing alright’ is the biggest enemy of doing great.

If you were in a bad situation, it would motivate you to burn the ships and get yourself to a place where you’re doing great.

If you are doing alright, the fear of losing what you have will stop you from getting what you could have.

You’ll get stuck in a situation in which you’ve accepted to settle for something that’s below your full potential. A situation in which you’re comfortably numb.

Don’t let comfort make you lose sight of your dreams. You have one life. Don’t settle for anything less than its full potential.

There’s more to life than ‘doing alright’.
