“People will choose unhappiness over uncertainty” – Timothy Ferriss
In general, we are not risk takers. Once we get into a routine, that routine becomes very hard to break. So instead of changing, we choose to stay the same partly because we don’t know what the results of the change will be. Getting into a rut that isn’t good for your health, such as eating junk food or not exercising, can be hard to break, especially when there’s a voice in the back of your head saying that no matter what you do, you won’t be able to reach your goals. Although there is uncertainty in making a lifestyle change, you can’t let your previous actions stay and become your future actions, because you will stay where you’re currently at, unhappy about not reaching your goals.
