Nothing of significance can be born without major discomfort and disruption.
Read it again!
I recently asked a group of people what they thought their life purpose is and the majority wanted to be significant in one way or another; leave their mark on the world.
I found a life vision for myself through the Personal Growth Journal of Coaching Culture Clubs and the group coaching of Bryanston No 1 Coaching Culture Club. A vision is just that, a picture. To become the significant person I envisage myself to be I have to expect ‘major discomfort and disruption’.
I find it rather ironic that I read this quote the day after telling everyone at Bryanston No 1 Coaching Culture Club that in order to achieve my vision I expect a lot of discomfort, but that I allow my saboteur to rule my life because I’m comfortable as I am right now.
How about you?
Have you answered the question for yourself: what is my life mission?
If you are not already living your life mission,
do you have a picture – a vision – of what your life mission will look like?
If you have this vision, what is stopping you living this vision?
Are you like me, fearful of the ‘discomfort and disruption’ that will overtake your life as you start to become and achieve what is significant for you?
Don’t berate yourself! Most people are fearful of ‘discomfort and disruption’, but know that when you look at the “heroes” you hold up for yourself, they achieved what they achieved to make them your “hero” by working with and working through the ‘discomfort and disruption’ that descended on their life when they started out on their journey.
But also be certain that there are people who look up to you as a “hero” because in your life you have already weather ‘discomfort and disruption’ to achieve something others looks up to your for. So, know that you (and I) have the resilience to weather the ‘discomfort and disruption’ to achieve our vision of fulfilling our life mission.
You are a “hero” to people already because you have withstood ‘discomfort and disruption’. You can again!
Now it is up to us to take the next step ...
