Comfort is a Cage

Your comfort zone is a cage.
— Alan Stein Jr.

We often trap ourselves in the ease of comfort.

As athletes and humans, it’s our duty to grow and thus seek discomfort. Growth can only be found beyond the familiar safety net of comfort. Your muscles need increased stress to gain strength just as your mind needs introduction to new ideas in order to learn. Obstacles and adversity fuel improvement while sitting back in comfort only leads to decay.

Don’t be stuck in Plato’s cave, comfortable is for the weak.
