Confronting the brutal facts are not something a lot of us do. Yet it is one of the elements of becoming everything you dream of.
In business or in life, it is comfortable to allow things to be as they are. The alternative is that we need to take responsibility to change and change (even though we yearn for it) brings with it the price tag of discomfort.
Beyond the discomfort is the prize.
The prize in life, clearly defined, is lacking, me thinks.
That is why most people stay where they are. Vague dreams of living a good life, wishing thing could be better, are bountiful. Therefore stuckness in the norm.
To be unstuck. Liberated. You and I need to be honest.
Honest first with ourselves. Then learn how to authentic with others.
I recently watched Mark Leruste be honest about the entrepreneurial experience. I love the way how he distinguishes between the marketed reality of social media and the experienced reality of everybody. I acknowledge him for voicing what so many business owners experience. I invite you to have a look at his TEDx talk.
My last thoughts.
Face the truth. No matter how uncomfortable. But do not be overwhelmed by it. Face it with love. Love is a verb. Love is that what you do or not do, that leaves the beloved better off. Truth without love is brutal, love without truth is sentimental. Truth saturated with love is powerful.
