I read a great quote this week, which is so very appropriate for the discussion we’ve been having on getting the results you want in life!
Growth and Comfort do not co-exist!
And this is why you don’t have what you want yet… Because you have bought into the ‘lie’ that you can have both… Or that growth is easy!
I spoke with ‘Charles’ this week and he said, “Margaret, I look at these celebrities and CEO’s, and they all have a lot of money and success and fame. They make it look so easy. Why can’t I be like them?”
And the answer is so easy… It’s because they only ‘make’ it look easy… If you dig deeper… beyond the glossy magazines… and you listen to their ‘real’ story or get to know more about them, you find out that they have the same trials and tribulations as the rest of us. Virtually none of them had it handed to them on a silver platter.
But you’ve bought into the magazine cover page ‘lie’. So let me say it again…
Growth and Comfort do not co-exist.
So here’s the hard question you have to ask yourself…
How bad do I want it?
- Do I want it bad enough to let go of old beliefs and behaviors that no longer serve or support me?
- Do I want it bad enough to have faith in my higher power and not my fear?
- Do I want it bad enough to invest my time and money to make it happen?
When you can answer “YES!” to these questions, then I know you are ready to manifest your dreams. Until you can do that, you will blame and complain, and stay stuck right where you are today.
