Choose Greatness over Comfort.
“I’m continually trying to make choices that put me against my own comfort zone. As long as you’re uncomfortable, it means you’re growing.” — Ashton Kutcher
I want you to think about this question, “Am I comfortable?”
Your answer is most likely yes, at least in many areas of your life. I am here to challenge you to change that answer to no.
I would imagine that many of you are thinking, “Why would I want to be uncomfortable?” My answer is simple: to become great!
I’m not asking you to trade in your comfort for a life of misery, anxiety and unhappiness. I want you to trade in your comfort for greatness. Many of us wish to accomplish great things and live life to the full potential it offers, but we find ourselves back in the same spot time and time again. We allow the mindlessness comfort of our lives to keep us exactly where we are, and why shouldn’t we? Things are relatively easy in that state. However, deep down you will always long for more growth.
You cannot be happy, fulfilled, or great, without continued growth and improvement.
Comfort makes us accept where we are and gives us excuses for not moving forward. Tim Ferriss wrote, “People will choose unhappiness over uncertainty.” That statement is true, and very sad. I challenge you not to be one of those people.
Uncertainty is scary. Being uncomfortable is hard. However, being less than you know you can be is scarier and much harder.
If you want to do something great; if you want to be someone great; If you want to get the very most that life has to offer, then I challenge you to get uncomfortable.
Step outside your comfort zone because everything you want to become is waiting for you on the other side!
