Becoming “too comfortable” is similar to plateauing. If you feel like you’ve plateaued in a certain area of your life then it’s time to shake itmight be constantly asking yourself, “What can I do better? ” “How can I be better at my job, my relationship blah blah… ”
I was once challenged by a coach, I was frustrated, I wanted to be more successful, more dynamic, earn more ££, but that success just evaded me. I was frustrated, cross with myself and didn’t seem able to crack the code. She told me I didn’t want it enough. I was too comfortable! WHAT???
Once the initial anger settled – how flippin dare she! Then came the tears – my tears of frustration. Frustration with the situation and myself. She went on (yes taking no prisoners) that I was too comfortable, I lived in a nice home, we had nice things etc and if I couldn’t pay my mortgage, couldn’t put food on the table at the end of the month I’d work harder, be more determined and do what was needed – no matter what!
I was cross – how could I work any harder? I was cross, defiant even, and yet once I’d slept on it I realised she was totally right. Damm her! 🙂
So if you’re reading this and you’re frustrated with your situation take a long hard look at what you’re doing and more importantly HOW you’re expending your energy.
So if any of the following 7 examples resonate with you take a long good look about how serious you are…
- I’ll do it (whatever IT is) tomorrow.
- I don’t want to bother anyone.
- I’m just too busy to do that.
- There’s always next month!
- I’ll just do the washing /the ironing / tidy up my office and desk space before I get started.
- I need a day off for me.
- There’s not a lot of time to work once I’ve got back from the school run, been to the gym. I don’t get started until about 10:30 and I’ve got to think about picking the children up again from about 2:30pm
Now if you’re reading this and cursing me, please be aware that I was a single mum of 2 little girls when they were 2& 4 (they are now 21 & 18) and I was a single mum for about 9 years. So I really do know what I am talking about and how hard it is to juggle everything.
So if you’re still cross, but now you’re cross or frustrated with the 7 examples above then please take a long hard look at WHY you are in business. It’s probably time to get comfortable with being uncomfortable!
