Yes, when we want success in life first thing is to think with no boundaries. That is think like a child and come out of your comfort zone. This means that when we are kids, we are eager to learn to stand, write, etc. Once we age, we start applying boundaries for ourselves. So, stop being in your comfort zone ready to take risks.

Hi, friends I just want to discuss regarding this topic that a ship docked in Harbor can not face the storms that means here ship means we and that Harbor means our comfort zone and that storm means our path of success if we always stocked our body physically and mentally in the comfort zone we can't win the race a scriptures looks more to more beautiful due to their lots work done by that maker and painter so we should always busy in our non-comfortable zone but never rest in our comfort zone as we talk a sleeping lion can't get the sweetest meat so we just start our mission mode for getting our goals never think of that how much we completed our task today but think like that how much I want to learn today and how far I am from my success, achievement, goals. So, I concluded that our mindset ship always is in ready for facing storm be in the running water-heavy waves but not be in a comfort zone like Harbor thank you.

It means the ship docked in the harbour cannot reach its destination. Without movement and without any action nobody can get anything. If you are stuck at the moment and dream of everything it is of no use. You have to move to get what you want. Same way if you have any thought you have to take a step, which is the first step to make your dream come true. The result is secondary, you may get it or not, never think of that. It creates a negative thought in you. Movement is necessary. Make a move, just don't be struck where ever you are. The very first step gives you confidence, later no one can stop you. Even you, can't stop yourself from moving.

Life is all about taking the risk, one can't succeed in life until he passes by million of difficulties.

The survival of the fittest is a base of ones living.

A ship docked in a harbor can't experience thunder, lightning, storm and can't prove it metal until tested in an open ocean. As experience always tends to perfection. The day when we all will understand our duties, responsibilities, aim no one would be able to stop us. Once the ship sails into the ocean face the storm and reach its destination it gets success.

According to me, the given topic has a deep meaning.

That if you want to succeed in your life you to face difficulties criticism from your competitors and other people but from the fear of criticisms you don't need to follow your path of success as same as that of the ship docked in the dockyard not able to survive long in front of the storm but whereas if it is moving then it's chances or probability of serving the Strom increases so from this we have to inculcate the sense of always moving forward in our life and never stop from difficulties in our life.

If you are not taking a risk in life, then you are taking bigger risk. According to me, success is not having only one result, it is the result of continuous hard work at each and every moment of life. Those who will not come out of box and also those are not able to think out of the box will never get success. Those work hard may get success or may not but I can say he or she has gained some experience. Experience plays major role in the life of successful people. So we should never give up and always try our best to get a positive result in our life.

In my instance, this phrase can be compared with a person who lies within his comfort zone and never wishes to get out of it. He who has all the luxury, moreover no further intention of doing something productive, can never go ahead and face the storm (hardships). As a ship can reach its destination after crossing storms only, the man can attain its aim by facing hardships and struggles in life.

I conclude by saying that those who want to remain only in their comfort zone can never become successful in their life.

Friends, there can be a number of interpretations of this phrase. When I heard the topic I could clearly relate it to the journey of life. A ship docked in harbor is a man, a human who is still clinging to his limitations and still is dependent on someone and fears risks and challenges. A ship docked in a harbor is a human who is still inside a shell and caught inside. It still fears to come outside of it. Can such a person ever be able to succeed?I feel that such a person would never be able to face storms of life -obstacles of life.

Therefore I conclude saying that it is important to come out of your comfort zone.

Definitely, a ship docked at harbour can't face the storm. A ship is not meant to be tied to one place. A ship deserves an experience of travelling across the water then only it's purpose will be fulfilled and it could face the storms without getting submerged easily into the water. As a ship dock to a harbour is useless similarly our life is also useless if we never come out of our comfort zone then d only thing we will do is surrendering ourself easily before the situations. What is the essence of that life which is not full of experiences and risks? Our experiences make us to reach success and get the meaning of life. We, humans, are always afraid of bad experiences and just because of it we never desire to come out of our box.

Our experience and risk-taking capacity prepare us to face any difficult situation of our life. It makes us strong so that we can easily withstand bad situations. Our life comprises of both good and bad weather. A difficult one is like a cloudy weather. If we are already having an experience then we can perform better.

A ship docked in the harbour may be safe, but if you wanted something safe you would have a fortified defensive structure built and not a ship.

Safety is nice, but pushing yourself outside the comfort zone is sometimes necessary.

Not everything in life comes easy. It takes arduous effort, perseverance, tenacity and unwavering compassion to attain success or reach desired heights.

The prudence to prepare for unexpected and the skill of side-stepping trouble and embarrassment is important to strike balance between safety and risk, also to stay composed and collected without trepidation.

Even if the ship is docked in harbour might be possible that its design is far better to conquer the storms. Similarly if a person has a good will power, sharp mindset and is unidirectional in his thoughts will easily cross any hurdles.

As a child I was scared to ride a bicycle and would shudder at the very moment I used to see my father take out the bicycle for me to ride. I was scared to crash it in a road, hurt myself and my father was more perturbed if I would hurt anyone else with it.

Jokes apart, he told me that if I try I would fall off or not for the first time. But if don't try again and again, I would not be able to experience the joy of cycling once I learn it.

The fear in you might stop you for once, but the slightest hope of joy will always keep you going. Rock the ship, it's time to face the storm.

Yes I completely agree with this saying that "A ship docked in harbour cannot face the storms", which means that if a person is not moving in his life, than he cannot face all the problems in life. If a person is doing nothing, than he can never progress in life. One Should know about their strengths and weaknesses. He/She should work on their weakness. Running or not reacting to the problem is not a solution to tackle the problem. Problem is only overcomed by facing and solving the problems. For example if one is afraid of falling from a bike, so he thinks that I will not drive the bike, if I will drive than I will fall. Then he is never going to learn how to drive the bike. We should look for the possibilities for solution of the problems. By this way we can live our life delightfully.

Everyone on earth takes birth or exists for a purpose. This may be a self-defined goal or a social responsibility or anything. Everyone's life is directed towards the accomplishment of the objective. Although, one accomplishment leads to the desire for a new goal. Success lies in such accomplishments.

The purpose of a seed to provide food and shelter and reproduce. The purpose can be achieved only if the seed comes out of its comfort zone, i.e. the nurturing soil. The seed's life is successful, only when it cracks the earth and comes out to grow into a tree. It is said, "Too much of anything is bad". If the same seed, fails to grow and come out of the comfort zone to face the atmosphere, the same earth which was supposed to nurture it will end up spoiling the same. A rotten seed is of no use.

Similarly, an un-harbored ship invites rust and damages itself. Over-pampered or lazy people who deny leaving their comfort zones, are never successful. To enjoy success, one needs to face challenges and difficulties of life.


A ship can sail against the storms and realize its potential, only if it is un-harbored.

I think that a ship docked in the harbor cannot face storms. Let's take an example of Lord Buddha, he was a king enjoying a lavish life with his wife until he came across the harsh realities of life that is suffering, old age death. Then he went on to explore the realities of life and enlightened the world with his teachings. If we talk about a harbored ship, it would eventually form rust and would be of no use likewise if we won't face any storms (hardships) that life would be a burden. Without striving, you won't get any idea to tackle it. So let's unleash the ship so that it will fulfill its purpose and sail it across and against the channel.

In my opinion, a ship docked in harbor cannot face the storms. Is similarly the person facing difficulties in life. A person who has only success in life can never know the taste of actual success that comes after failure.

Here the person who has only success doesn't know how failure will be & if failure comes to him, he may not be able to face those difficulties but the person who face success after failure can surely face any kind of difficulties. So the life with difficulties will help us to know the actual happiness of success.

A ship at the harbour can not face the storm is very right. To fly in the sky we have left our nest. But I don't think that life is race but it is beautiful paradise created by god. To enjoy its beauty we have to explore through it. Obstacle are just gap fillers between you n your success. In short life is an ECG don't expect that it should be straight. Just deal it!

After complicating among thousands of sperm cells we entered to this comparative world. We had struggles a lot in our mother stomach for our birth, in the same manner we should struggle a lot to reach our goals. Sea seems flat from outside, we know its depth only when drown into it. Life is race we are the racers, we should competitive each and every minute, in fraction of seconds we may miss our goal.

To accomplish our targets we are like a sailing ship not as ship docked in the harbor. Waves in the seas are struggles in our life. As ship move forward by crossing each and every wave. We should also reach our goals by crossing all difficulties faced in our life's. I conclude ship docked in harbor is equal to man with full of laziness. Even he is talented his laziness kills him.

Hello everyone.

We are here to discuss about the topic A SHIP DOCKED IN HARBOR CAN'T FACE STORMS.

According to my views what this statement means is that the one who is living in a cozy and protected environment won't be able to face the ups and down's of the life until and unless that person come out of that cozy environment and start facing reality.

Conclusion : For becoming a wise person one has to face life.

'A ship Docked in Harbour cannot face the storms'.

Yes, I agree with this statement. The cozy lifestyle will never help us grow strong enough to tackle the real life situations. But before we go to face challenges, one should be prepared enough to know how to face challenge and march forward in life. The goal is also needed to chosen intelligently.

Today right from childhood we are pampered by so many luxuries, modern amenities, gadgets etc. Which make us feel that we are very happy and I don't have to make any efforts for anything. But when grown up one faces obstacle at every point of time. He has to take decisions himself.

So he is already facing difficulties and problems every time but he should guidance and apply his own knowledge to tackle it. Because the reality is far more complicated than we think of. Also one cannot go avoiding the reality.

So please think of you, your goal, process etc. And make endeavors to get. Keep remembering life is a bed of roses. We are always getting illusioned in so many ways. Find a path to achieve the aim.

Thank you!

Ship docked in harbor cannot face the storms. A person explores himself, he must come out from the robot life. It would be anything company, place, religion. If person is under shelter or depending on something so he is difficult to understand real life.

I would say a person learns to face the challenges when he comes out from his fantasy world into real world. He'll win Not-immediately but definitely. Do not pray for an easy life, pray, pray for the strength to endure a difficult one.

Ship docked in harbor cannot face the storm.

Lets be realistic, life in its any form has difficulties to live along with. The type of difficulty is subjective to the person and scenario. Its easy to say that "Go live your Fear" or " Go against the Flow" but what it actually requires is the self realization that I need to give away anything that is weighing me down (read Anchor).

Just even the self realization is a big step. Realization to leave everything behind and go out face the life in its real form. Now, the Anchor has many form too. Its not just fear. It can be emotion or feeling attached to somebody too. What if the feeling is not fear of failure and its fear of success. All we need to do is realize.

Hi friends,

In my opinion the topic is similar to the true aspects of life, a mother gives birth to her child having a pain of 65 decibel, if she refuses to have a child in fear of having pain then a new life will not come into existence. Again if a baby bird doesn't try to fly in fear of falling then it can never fly. Therefore we have to face every difficulty of our life to achieve the success. It is the moral of life.

There are different stages of life and in each we have our personal experiences. Our initial stage is our childhood in which we are dependent to our elders our parents we learn everything from them each and every experience teaches us how to respond in the near future which similar to the way a ship docked in the harbor prepares itself to sail towards its destination.

Once the ship leaves the harbor it Jas complete it journey alone it has face every situation by its own. In the same once we grow it our responsibility to face every situation by our own following the knowledge and learning we gained during our early stages. Once we know our destination its our duty to choose the right path to achieve the goal but if we remain dependent for our own jobs we will never learn to to face difficulties.

The only way to face the world bravely is to face the storms. 'Storms are just like the stepping stones to success'. Of course every one of us wants to be succeed in lie some or the other way, its not just (bed of roses) flowers of success that we meet in our day to day life its also some failures that shape our future (like there are also some thrones in beautiful roses).

A ship that is docked in the harbor has loosen its ability to strive, once its brought out of it and made fit for sailing we are sure its going to rock. Its the same with us, we have been the 'docked ship' that is till our childhood in our parents shelter (harbor). But as an graduate its time for breaking the shell heading to face the storm (the outside world). I am sure each one of us are going to rock our journey of life.

A Ship docked in harbor cannot face the storms. A person explores himself when he comes out from the comfort zone which parents provide. We can apply it on our lives as well.

According to me when a person is under parent's shelter he is unable to know how fast how competitive this world is just like a ship in harbor and the day when he (person) faces hurdles, he gets the spirit of fighting to succeed his goal.

So it is not wrong if I would say a person learns to face the challenges when he comes out from his fantasy world and fights with the storms.

A ship docked in harbor cannot face the storm. In my point of view every goals can be achieved by facing some big or short type of difficulties, without difficulties one can get his goal only in dreams but we all know dreams are ideal that not real. If we have some goals then we have some barrier on that way, if we faced that then goals in our hand.

Let us I try to express technically function of ship cross the river from one destination to other, but on the way there is a barrier called storm comes, but if ship not face the storm can it reached to his destination? No, similarly a man wants to set up a business of his own if he afraid about future loss can he become a successful business man? No, so each and every goals there are some storms that we have to face to defeat it and get our goals.

Well said unless you try something that you really wants, it will not happens magically but doing so someone sometime get success and someone not to those who have not succeed they can do better than first because they are firm with the way that will make them successful, they are more experienced one. So as ship travel and number of times travels, it knows how to tackle with storm.

So like wise failure in life doesn't depicts your quality rather than checked your patience, increase your ability to face the problem so my friend never be afraid of what you didn't got and look it as new opportunity, with complete freshness, with complete enthusiasm and most important with 100% efforts without hesitation.

Yes. A ship docked in harbor cannot face the storms. One has to step to know the inward ability of oneself. In our imagination anything seems so simple and we will be in an idea that we could achieve it, whereas coming to reality we will realize the difficulties in it. Meanwhile we should not stop working because of fear of failures.

We should try try try until we achieve it. Most of the people will be in a thought of what others think of us if we fail in it. We are here not for satisfying others.

Hi friends,

It's truly said that 'A ship docked in Harbour cannot face the storms'. For few seconds go to your past, recollect those childhood memories. While learning to walk holding our parents hand, we must have fallen so many times but we used to stand up and walk again. This very picture can clearly say what actually life is.

We all fail, we fall, but in order to master our life we have to stand up again, just in the same way how we have mastered the art of walking:P. Moreover, gold cannot be purified without fire and diamonds are nothing but the chunks of coal stick to their jobs. So I believe, In order to reach our destination, we have to sail our ship, and the storms actually help us to know the real quality of ship. If ship will get across then we can know the potential and if not then we also don't need to worry, we can work in order to improve the ship and will get across next time:).

A ship docked in a harbor cannot face the storms.

Truly said, the thought cannot be denied. Our life is like a ship. Once turned towards a direction, it is very hard to turn back. If we don't go out and try to face the challenges of life, if we try to hide from the difficulties, then there is no point living life, for the challenges and difficulties give the opportunity to gain experience and learn the living through our mistakes. We never lose respect by trying something different, we always gain respect.

Hello friends, I feel that the topic succinctly states the reality of life that if a person does not try, he or she will not face any difficulties. But that is not a good thing. In order to prove yourself, in order to test your capabilities, in order to get to truly know oneself one has to try.

Storm signifies the difficulties in life, but only if the ship sets sail will it face a storm, only if you try will you face difficulties and only then will you know your true self. The world is a place of unimaginable number of opportunities, and satiation in a place like this will only lead to degradation.

Exactly a ship docked in the harbor cannot face the storm, since it is kept unexposed to the deadly storms in the middle of the sea, which is of no use though. This is very much connected to our life that the one who is not exposed to the real world, challenges and hurdles can literally achieve nothing.

So risk is the major part of our life. With whom we can learn, win.

And get experience. But if one get some success without taking any risk and hard work than definitely he is not going to learn something from that. So this is whole depends on us that what path we choose in the way of fulfilling our dreams and desires.
