We love comfortable. It’s true our beds must be just right, our coffee brewed to our heart’s delight and perhaps fluffy sock are preferable. We have to admit that sometimes comfortableness can be very very good. Then on the flip side, it can be very bad. When you are building a legacy, changing the game, building something that will outlast you requires stomping out it’s the greatest enemy and hindrance – comfortableness.
All the great people that have done great things before you probably weren’t so comfortable. They may have had ideas that were less than popular and that went against the grain. They destroyed the box that had a pretty prepackaged way of doing things, and they discovered the ingenious – the limitless possibilities of just daring to be different. Daring to dream things that took great doses of courage nobody else had. The power of believing that they were created for more and that the more wouldn’t come to where they were comfortable but to where they were drawn out into the deep where there was no certainty.
I never knew that I could swim and not sink until I was so deep in that there was nothing to hold me up but the courage that I must swim or drown in these waters of comfortableness.
