    To me, this means that in order to get the results you want you need to get out of your comfort zone. By staying in your comfort zone, you'll only stay where you are now and not progress... We all need to learn and try new things in internet marketing, no matter how scary it may seem. By that I mean, for a lot of people, just the "taking action" bit is scary. Very nice and inspiring way to put it though, I like it!

    For Me, It means that We have to look for something bigger than what We have now. Feeling that We're satisfied with what We have will make us blind on the reality that there's a lot of bigger things in front of our eyes. So Open your eyes and pretend that You have nothing. That's way We can see the big opportunities in front of us.

    If a person is not grounded he will always chase new oceans, it's only when he looses sight of the shore he realises what he already had and has now lost, only to start all over again wasting more time.

    in short the grass always seems greener on the other side of the fence.

    The first thing it made me think of was doing things I'm scared of. I seem to be scared of a lot of things, and I have definitely had to leave my comfort zone a few times on my internet marketing journey. It's scary, and I imagine that some people would never do it. It's those that do it in spite of their fear that reach new levels of success.

    Of course, we can't always succeed at everything. But even if we don't, trying something new is always a learning experience.

    To me that means you can not progress in life unless you are willing to take risks.

      In order to discover the vast ocean of dreams and potential that lies dormant witnin you, you must leave the shores of dreaming and wondering, climb aboard the ship of exploration and action, then set sail on a journey through the uncharted waters of your unleashed latent talents and abilities.

    Very interesting interpretations here. To me, it means that in order to live life to the fullest you need to leave your comfort zone, take chances, take risks. That is where discovery of oneself becomes apparent.

    In terms of internet marketing, it similarly means we need to take leps of faith. In order to expand our business, we need to try new things, and paddle away from shore or our comfort zone. If you paddle far enough, it will be really tough to come back but heck, there may be something soo great in the vast ocean that we dont even want to come back to shore.

    Dream, take chances, live life to the fullest
