Life shrinks or expands in proportion to one’s courage. -Anais Nin
True courage is risking being uncomfortable. True personal growth and organizational growth only happen when we move forward, and that only happens when we have strength and courage and face our fears. Usually, it is nothing more than being willing to risk being uncomfortable or looking foolish.
Attaining greatness rests on our ability to courageously take on risks and break free of shackles of courage killers:comfort.apathy and complacency.
Tips to being great:
- Start identifying the ways in which “comfort” is holding you back from your goals and your happiness. Remember, that this can take on various disguises, like procrastination.
- Quit putting it off and simply decide to finally tackle the situation head on.
- Remember, you haven’t done it yet not just because it’s an unpleasant task, but because you are afraid to be uncomfortable or look foolish.
You have big plans…do not let your need for comfort kill them!
