26. No Life no Risk

By 25. Oktober 2019No Comments


Everything that is new or different generates excitement in us. For our brain, this excitement is first and foremost strange, dangerous. Deviations from the norm threaten our evolutionary thinking, which finds stability in constants. Your brain would always vote for the repetition of the past. Just don’t do anything new if you have survived this far.

Everything that lies outside the familiar is therefore somewhat unpleasant for you. At the same time the area outside the comfort zone contains exactly the happiness that we all hope for. No money, house or car replaces the happiness you can get from fully experienced experiences.

The secret goal of objects is exactly what you can have without them: Experience a better Now. Experience – not buy. Only if you don’t want to live, you don’t have to risk anything.
