This is How to Do Things You Don’t Want to Do

While it appears from the comments that some have benefitted from your piece, I have problems with it.

The quote you used from Grey is, for lack of a more appropriate description, strange. “The secret of success of every person who has ever been successful” ??? “Doing things that failures don’t like to do.” ???

I’m not familiar with who Grey is, but based on the quotes by him, it reflects an individual ignorant of what traits “successful” men and women possess to reach their goals.

I also take issue with the ridiculous notion of your statement: “No matter what you want to accomplish involves discomfort”. You go on: “A healthy body needs exercise and foods you don’t necessarily like”.

With all due respect, those assertions might be your own, but they’re just not true for the majority of professionals I interface with. Unfortunately, I must conclude, based on the entirety on what you wrote, that your definitions and characteristics of success are seriously misguided.
