DAMN! MY ILLITERATE SELF AND COMFORT ZONE.

Lastweek I left the house without my cards.
.
I had some business to attend to early so jetted out of the house without double checking as I would usually. I finished my business and it was time to pay for the services I got. Not enough cash to sort my 5figure bill, then and there it occurred to me that I wasn’t with my card.
.
Oga, make I do transfer?…”ha! I need cash ooo”. He replied.
.
I’m in hot soup I thought. Luckily for me, it was around 3pm, I could still walk into the bank where we had parked. I walked into the bank, met a cashier and requested for a withdrawal slip.
.
I guess I was looking too contemporary not to know about ATM’s. “Where is your card?” He asked. “Oh! I forgot it at home”. I amswered.
.
“Well, you don’t need a withdrawal slip, you can still use the ATM with your fingerprint”.
Like he was speaking some foreign language, my jaw dropped. “I’ld rather use a withdrawal slip, maybe I’ll try fingerprints next time”
.
He looked at me, shock his head as though I had offended the gods. “Are you withdrawing above 100k”? “No” I answered. “Go to any of the last 3 machine downstairs, select fingerprint withdrawal, input your registered line and place the required finger on the biometric scanner” he explained.
.
Choiceless as he wouldn’t give me a withdrawal slip,  I made my way downstairs, did as he instructed and boom! Machine dropped my ego! I felt like one of the heros in Star Wars. #lol .
.
Going home that day, it occurred to me how my mind was conditioned to only try what it was used to. Why was I refusing to try something new? Why was I insisting on doing only the familiar? Why was I choosing to remain in my comfort zone?…Well, I’ve answered all these questions and I think you should answer them too.
.
As with my bank experience, many of us are super glued to our comfort zone. We would rather die than try new ideas even if those ideas look like it has potential for growth and success. Comfort zone isn’t a myth guys, it exist and it will keep you at average all day every day.
.
Liberate your mind, be open to new ideas. Even if you fail, you’ld be better for it…By the way guys, I don’t think there are many of us who have used this fingerprint withdrawal technology in Nigeria. My hands need insurance, please recommend ?.
