This week's question from my portal “The Neagle Code: Directions for Life” comes from someone who wishes to remain anonymous.
Hi David, and thanks for taking my question!
My problem is that I think I’m too comfortable. I believe I have a deep desire to build my own business, but it seems I stop before I even start… I spend my time “thinking” rather than “doing.” And I think it’s important to mention that I don’t NEED to bring in money. I do WANT to though…
Any insight you can provide would be extremely helpful.
The truth in your situation is that you just don’t want it bad enough. You are content to stay where you are, and there’s nothing really that’s creating a sense of urgency for you.
In these instances, YOU have to create the sense of urgency.
Let me explain…
Until your burning desire is greater than you’re need for comfort, nothing will change. Growth is uncomfortable. Without the discomfort we don’t grow. And if you are not growing, it’s going to be nearly impossible to help someone else grow.
Ask yourself, what in your life is keeping you comfortable?
Is it a job you show up to everyday?
Is it your savings account?
Is it your safe group of people around you?
What specifically do you fall back on as that safety net?
In order for you to move past this you have to identify that safety net and burn it.
Then you have to fall deeply, madly and 100% in love with this desire you have to help people.
You see, the juice of life lies beyond your comfort zone…
As we grow and expand, we can then enrich the lives of others.
