From my inbox this morning....
The number one thing that you have to sacrifice to be great is your comfort. Everyone wants to be great, be successful, yet most people choose short-term, comfortable activities over long-term, pleasurable results. If it were easy to be great, then everyone would be great.
Think about it - the average American worker wastes 2.09 hours every day at work according to one recent study. This wasted time is spent on comfort at the expense of greatness.
To be great, you must be willing to pay the price of greatness. Think about your moment-by-moment choices. What comfortable activity are you choosing over your own greatness?
You have incredible capabilities, but so few people actually make of themselves even one iota of what they are capable of becoming. Decide right now to eliminate one comfort activity from your day and replace it with an activity that drives results for you. At first, this may be difficult, but if you forget, just notice and get back on track.
If you can master your desire for comfort, then you will place yourself among the few people who truly reach their goals and dreams in life.
