Food For Thought #051: Fear. Pain. Discomfort.

Everything you want is over there. Just over the edge of the horizon. It is close enough to see and maybe even grasp. But it too far to touch. Too far to feel. So what is stopping you from reaching out and finally taking hold of “the everything you want”?

It is FEAR. It is PAIN. It is the DISCOMFORT you will endure.

FEAR, PAIN, and DISCOMFORT are actually what will get you to the next level. They can be the 3 traits bold enough to actually enable you to touch the horizon but it takes it even a step further.

“Everything you want is on the other side of fear.” – Jake Canfield

“When your desires are strong enough, you will appear to possess superhuman powers to achieve.” – Napoleon Hill

“A person’s success in life can usually be measured by the number of uncomfortable conversations he or she is willing to have.” – Tim Ferris

All the above is available to you for the taking. You can have it all or you can continue to dream about it. But you have to pay the price to have these things. The primary obstacle in your way is how you feel about what you need to do to have these things.

When you feel the fear and do it anyways, you get the satisfaction of living life on your terms. Instead of being a hostage to your emotions, you get to experience them more deeply.

2017 is knocking – but how will you answer. Will it be with arm open wide? Will you embrace the opportunities that lay before you?

This chapter is on you. Make it a good one.
