The scope of humanity is limitless; reaching every corner where the only barrier placed is the extent of our imagination. The farthest stars and the deepest trenches are mapped by the piqued interest of the human fascination, meandering through the unbridled, unexplored ocean of mysteries. We can achieve a plethora of dreams only if we set our mind to conquer them.
Very often, although capable, we do not tap into the unlimited potential of our resources, We instead choose to escape the difficulties placed before us and often sink to sub optimal performances, for the unknown frightens us. Most of us lead comfortable paths within our comfort zones, for it is a charted territory marked by us, choosing to ignore the wonders beyond.
But sometimes, many within us like to test those limits and chart the unexplored territory. They set out of their secure lives and explore the different routes. They overcome the fear of the unknown and achieve greater heights of success.
