“No son, we can’t”
“But why? This is such a nice place, it is comfortable and I’ve been a good boy all along”
“That’s where you are wrong. You musn’t get too comfortable. Get out of your comfort zone. Don’t stop no matter how difficult the next step is”
He didn’t understand. Left with no choice he followed his Dad.
Years later those same words helped him make up his mind for a life changing decision.
