“To the degree we’re not living our dreams, our comfort zone has more control of us than we have over ourselves.” –Peter McWilliams

I recently heard a leader who has been at the forefront of people growing massively in their lives and careers describe what he saw happen to many.

They began expanding enormously, for one reason or another, and experienced success and abundance greater than they had ever known.

Yet often, within a year he said, they were right back at the level they had been before…where it was controllable, what they were used to, what they could manage.

It’s easy to talk big dreams and grand visions, yet the realization of them CANNOT be comfortable or pretty. Otherwise, they’re not big dreams or grand visions.

Got ugly discomgrowth?

“A dream is your creative vision for your life in the future. You must break out of your current comfort zone and become comfortable with the unfamiliar and the unknown.” –Denis Waitley
