The first question to ask yourself right now before you read this is, how can this quote help me in my present situation and then how can I use this quote to help others? You’re a leader.

As you read this quote, ask yourself the following questions and write down your answers:
- How has this success quote been true in my own life?
- Where am I too comfortable in life right now?
- What are some things I can do today to practice being uncomfortable?
- Where/how is my competition comfortable?
- Am I willing to do what they refuse to do to get the competitive edge?
Those who succeed were—at one point or another in their lives—willing to put themselves in situations that were uncomfortable, whereas the unsuccessful seek comfort from all their decisions. The most important things I have done in my life were not the things I was comfortable doing; in fact, many of them made me very uneasy.
Whether it was moving to a new city, cold calling a client, meeting new people, doing a new presentation, or venturing into new sectors, most of it was uncomfortable for me until I got used to doing it.
It is so tempting to become content with your surroundings, daily rituals, and habits—most of which are probably not furthering your mission. It feels good when things are familiar. However, successful people are willing to put themselves in new and unfamiliar situations.
That doesn’t mean that they are always changing just for the sake of changing; however, they know that getting too comfortable, too relaxed, and too familiar causes a person to become soft and lose his or her creativity and hunger to stay out front.
So be willing to be uncomfortable, and do what makes other people uncomfortable as well. It is a sure sign that you’re on your way to success.
