I was sitting at a street-side stall of Idli Vada and Tea. This is my routine to reach here by 9 am every day to have a cup of masala milk and if I have missed my breakfast at home then I eat idlis too.
So, I tend to spend around 20-30 minutes here.
As soon as I sat today, a lady arrived there from a society compound. She was leaving for office I guess and was waiting for an autorickshaw.
She did not come very much ahead of the society gate due to the hot sun these days may be. She stood under the shade which was very much inside.
Seemed to be in a hurry but still did not want to struggle for an auto. Was waving hand to the rickshaws but may be many of them couldn’t even notice her as she was standing a bit inside the main road. And in between some other people who came after her caught the rickshaws easily just because they were ready to be in the harsh sun rays and were struggling to get rickshaw.
At last a rickshaw driver noticed her waving hand and stopped for her but denied to go to her destination.
She was simply annoyed with it, tried again but without moving from that comfort zone.
At last she called up someone and said she cannot come as her rick got broken on the way. And unable to find another rick. And she went back to that housing society.
Don’t we behave similarly with the opportunities in life?
We wait for them to come standing in a comfort zone. Sometimes we don’t want to struggle to grab them. And in between some other people come and ride on those opportunities.
Rarely an opportunity notices us but then we are not a fit for it. The opportunity denies to take us along with. But then after spending lot of time on it, we tend to give silly excuses but not ready to move out of the comfort zone.
Move Out of your comfort zone to grab the best opportunities.
