Understand the comfort zone and the risk
Yes, you are right these are the different phases of the life cycle of the butterfly. Every stage is associated with different energy level and specified time frame and if it does not reach the next stage within specified period, it will die and the butterfly will never come out. The adequate amount of energy and proper timing is required to reach the next level successfully.
Every new level is associated with some amount of ambiguity, instability and unpredictability which give rise to RISK.
The same phenomenon is replicated in our lives. We require energy every time we break our comfort zones. But we lock ourselves in our own comfort zones. We usually close the door of growth because we fear entering into uncertainty. We generally look at the negative side of the uncertainty which is fear of failure and loss. This creates a psychological fear in our mind which pulls us from going ahead or exploring new things, making us to revolve in same comfort zone and sometimes people spend their whole life under this fear & stagnation.
The only escape of this fear is to open the door and embrace uncertainty. When you respond to the change and accept it instead of reacting & avoiding it, you will start enjoying it. This is the way to your growth. But before entering the next level you must have enough energy to overcome the fear of failure.
Therefore, first you must equip yourself to face uncertainty. For this you have to prepare yourself.
