Let’s admit it: we want growth, health, and success to be easy. It’s why many people are drawn to the message of infomercials. “Here’s your problem. This easy solution solves your problem. Buy now and we’ll double your order.”
That’s not how it happens. When it comes to growth, health, or success, it takes work. Nearly every overnight success took years to accomplish.
Why do we look for the easy way?
Well, because it is … easy.
Easy is comfortable and we like to be comfortable. We like our comfort zones, safe and well-defined, predictable.
Study any accomplished person who is making a difference, whether that’s a mom, coach, scientist, or volunteer at a local shelter. Look for what sets them apart from people who have the same level of natural talent or ability, but who are sitting on the sidelines.
How did they become successful?
At some point, they chose to value change over comfort. They understood that comfort is never a requirement for growth; courage is. It takes courage to do what is uncomfortable but necessary.
So, the next time you are faced with a challenge, remember this: comfort is nice, courage is better.
