Are you afraid, lazy or just too comfortable?


This week’s question from my portal “The Neagle Code: Directions
for Life”
comes from Richard.

Neagle Code Question

Hi David and thanks for taking my question!

My problem is that I’m comfortable. I have deep desires to build a business that helps others, but I can’t seem to change the things I need to change or do the things I know I need to do to get myself going in the right direction. I’m not sure if it’s because of some strange fear, or if I’m just lazy.

Any insight you can provide would be extremely helpful.


Neagle Code Answer

Hi Richard!

The truth in your situation is that you just don’t want it bad enough. You are content to stay where you are, and there’s nothing really that’s creating a sense of urgency for you.

In these instances YOU have to create the sense of urgency.

Let me explain…

Until your burning desire is greater than your need for comfort, nothing will change. Growth is uncomfortable. Without the discomfort, we don’t grow. And if you’re not growing, it’s going to be nearly impossible to help someone else grow.

Ask yourself what in your life is keeping you comfortable?

• Is it a job you show up to every day?
• Is it your savings account?
• Is it your safe group of people around you?
• What specifically do you fall back on as that safety net?

In order for you to move past this, you have to identify that safety net and burn it.

Then you have to fall deeply, madly and 100% in love with this desire you have to help people.

You see, the juice of life lies beyond your comfort zone

As we grow and expand, we can then enrich the lives of others.
