Discomfort = the price of your ticket

Share this:

Discomfort = the price of your ticket  Average performers run away from discomfort. Above average performers take action in the face of discomfort. So, for most people, the work to be done is to start to embrace discomfort – to start to get comfortable with being uncomfortable. If mediocrity is the goal then we don’t […]

The wrong to-do list

Share this:

The wrong to-do list  The temptation is to fill our schedules with action items that are in our comfort zone. This gives us a mock sense of accomplishment because we can point to all that we got done. But ultimately, this doesn’t support us in becoming the person we want to be or in achieving […]

Average is okay???  If your goal is to be average and to live a mediocre life, then you do not need to push yourself. And, this is a valid choice – boring but valid. However, if we want more from life, we will have to push ourselves. Oftentimes we won’t feel like doing this. These […]

Reaching out when we don’t want to

Share this:

Reaching out when we don’t want to So often we don’t reach out for support at those very times that we need it the most. When this happens, we are believing some lousy story in our heads – things like: I don’t want to be an inconvenience, it would be embarrassing if people knew what […]

(dis) R…E…S…P…E…C…T  There are two flavors of upset: you hurt my feelings and you dissed me ~ disrespected, dishonored, disapproved, discounted, disregarded, devalued, wasted my time, disloyal.
