Over the years of working with clients and employees, both in the states and abroad, it’s become apparent that one of the greatest paths to failure, or not living up to your fullest potential, is focusing and taking action on things that are ...
Here are a few examples of what I mean…
The big question is … Why?
Why do humans not listen, think we know everything; and neglect what it will really take to move forward towards success rather than staying stuck in a Groundhog Day, like quagmire?
Well...for a number of reasons, but the major influence which comes up time and time again is to maintain comfort and avoid failure.
If you are comfortable and confident in the world of what you know then you will stay right where you are...achieving the results you’ve always gotten.
You MUST GET UNCOMFORTABLE to grow. Period. There is no magic templet, strategy, pill, or 20 min a week solution to taking big leaps forward. The only way to do that is to BECOME the type of person who DOES and ACCOMPLISHES those things.
Becoming is all consuming, it’s uncomfortable and painful, so most people choose to live in the “safety and comfort” of mediocrity.
Please don’t be one of those guys.
The world really needs more impassioned producers of value.
Those of you who have been following me a while know that I’m a big fan of empowering quotes. The reason behind this is that on days where I feel totally defeated, not knowing where the answers are coming from (Lord knows I’ve had a lot of those days).
Sometimes the right words at the right time can change your viewpoint entirely. And within that shift in viewpoint is where the magic lies.
