“When your brain says that you’re done, you’re only 40 percent done.” —David Goggins, Navy SEAL and ultramarathoner
Remember the following this week: when I feel like giving in or giving up, I’ll remember the 40 percent rule and how much more I have to give—perhaps up to 60 percent more! When I feel emotional or physical discomfort this week, I’ll remember that discomfort is an ally, not an enemy. To embrace my discomfort, I will write out a discomfort plan so I am ready and can stay gritty.
Power Phrase this Week: “I have a reserve tank that hasn’t even been tapped. I work hard, stay the course, and remain gritty.”
“Courage is not the absence of fear, but rather the assessment that something else is more important than the fear.” Franklin D. Roosevelt
High performers choose courage instead of comfort. To choose courage over comfort, consider what you can do TODAY that is uncomfortable. Courage is a muscle – the more you use it, the better you get at it. Being uncomfortable each day is the fastest way to make your vision for your life a reality and it’s the only way to reach the people you are intended to serve. Discomfort is the price you pay to experience success, step into your destiny and live a meaningful life. What will you do today to be uncomfortable?
This Week's Power Phrase: “I choose courage over comfort. I flex my courage muscle and go for it.”
