Comfort Is The Enemy Of ProgressDec 29, 2022
-Comfort is the enemy of progress-
When you think about where you are in life compared to where you want to go, there's probably some distance that needs to be covered and some changes that need to be made. This is normal and is part of growth and reaching your potential! But is there anything that's keeping you from moving from where you are to where you want to go?
Often times, as much as we say we want change and progress in our lives, we're actually really COMFORTABLE with where we are. And that causes us to not take action.
Comfort lulls us to sleep with a counterfeit lullaby saying we're perfectly fine and happy with where we are. That our goals aren't that exciting and our efforts aren't that necessary. It tells us we don't need to push ourselves, that we have time, that reaching our potential isn't essential to
our confidence, self-respect, or calling in this world.
When your comfort zone tries to sway you and tells you you don't need to make an effort for change, stop listening. Block it out. Fight for your goals anyway. This will be extremely UNcomfortable at first, but that will change. The first few times you go to the gym, it's extremely uncomfortable and even painful, but as you keep going, it becomes simple, routine, and impactful in your life. It's the same with choosing to get out of your comfort zone and take action toward your business and personal goals.
What helps you break out of your comfort zone? For M'Lisa, it's thinking of how she will feel about herself if she doesn't take that action! For Royal, it's saying "fuck it!" and realizing that everything he wants is on the outside of his comfort zone.
As the end of 2022 is approaching, reevaluate your goals. Did you achieve what you set out to achieve? If you made 2022 resolutions or vision boards, think about if you really stuck to what you said you would. Remember you can choose to change your reality anytime you’d like. The only reason why your bank account looks the way it does is because you’ve accepted that. The only reason why your business is not where you want it to be is because you’ve gotten comfortable. If you’re really fed up with your current situation, then change your mindset to one of willingness. You have to be willing to lean into the uncomfortable.
Make growth and change your new normal. Become obsessed with your goals. Feel urgency to grow your business and earn more revenue. We want to challenge you to start your New Year's Resolutions right now. As soon as you finish reading this blog, take an action step that can get you closer to your goal.
