EP164 - Courage vs Comfort

Good day, my friend. Welcome to A Moment with Moj.. I am over the moon that we're together again. I hope that you are having a great day. Thankful Thursday, little extra gratitude out to everybody who supports the show, which is all of you. Thank you for being here. Thank you for sharing this show. And of course, thank you for buying me a coffee at buymeacoffee.com or at amomentwithmoj.com. Thursday is also Ladies Day. Every time I come to a Thursday show I have to stop myself from singing Cool and the Gang, Ladies Night. Every time I think about Thursday's show that song runs in my head... Because it's Ladies Night, and the feelings right. Yes, it's Ladies Night, ohwhat a Night!

 Brene Brown joins the show and from her book Rising Strong, "I want to be in the arena. I want to be brave with my life. And when we sign up to dare greatly, we sign up to get our asses kicked. We can choose courage, or we can choose comfort, but we can't have them both. Not at the same time."

I want to be brave with my life 13 00:01:27.140 --> 00:01:32.780 and when we sign up to dare greatly, we sign up to get our 14 00:01:32.969 --> 00:01:38.250 asses kicked. We can choose courage or we can choose comfort, but we 15 00:01:38.450 --> 00:01:46.849 can't have them both, not at the same time. It seems we have 16 00:01:47.090 --> 00:01:55.239 been talking about courage all week. The Courage to stop, Karen about what 17 00:01:55.439 --> 00:02:02.750 other people think, the courage to try and, yesterday, the courage not 18 00:02:04.069 --> 00:02:09.870 to lose our morals and lower our standards of what we consider honorable behavior when 19 00:02:09.909 --> 00:02:16.699 we are challenged. To Day, we're talking about the courage to let life 20 00:02:17.259 --> 00:02:23.740 kick our ass, courage to take risks and the courage to get back up. 21 00:02:24.659 --> 00:02:30.889 Let me state that there is nothing wrong with choosing to be comfortable. 22 00:02:31.330 --> 00:02:37.969 If you are happy where you are, I mean truly happy, then unhappy 23 00:02:38.090 --> 00:02:43.689 for you. My father worked at the same place for a motor company or 24 00:02:44.719 --> 00:02:51.080 forty plus years. In nineteen eighty eight, I started working there too. 25 00:02:52.439 --> 00:02:55.159 It was a good job to have. A lot of the guys I got 26 00:02:55.280 --> 00:03:01.430 hired with are still there. I'd be entering my thirty fourth year seniorady. 27 00:03:02.110 --> 00:03:09.469 It would have been easy and comfortable to stay, but I had dreams and 28 00:03:09.629 --> 00:03:16.699 in less than two years I left that job. Sometimes Comfort can be a 29 00:03:16.860 --> 00:03:25.219 trap, a velvet prison golden bars that will keep you back from pursuing your 30 00:03:25.259 --> 00:03:31.969 dreams and keep you from becoming all that you could be. The resistance use 31 00:03:32.090 --> 00:03:38.689 its comfort against us by whispering in our ear. You don't need to do 32 00:03:38.969 --> 00:03:46.080 anything. You don't need to put yourself out there. We're perfectly fine right 33 00:03:46.240 --> 00:03:53.319 here where we are. It takes courage to dance to the beat of your 34 00:03:53.400 --> 00:03:59.590 own drum. It takes courage test step out of our comfort zone, but 35 00:03:59.710 --> 00:04:06.389 it's outside your comfort zone that your transformation begins. On Tuesday we talked about 36 00:04:06.870 --> 00:04:15.379 regrets. Have you given any thought to that? Is the risk of taking 37 00:04:15.540 --> 00:04:21.819 that first step out of your comfort zone worse than that risk of regret? 38 00:04:24.259 --> 00:04:29.370 We all have choices to make. You can choose comfort, play it safe, 39 00:04:30.250 --> 00:04:34.930 live the same year over and over and over again and wonder why your 40 00:04:35.050 --> 00:04:43.519 life is a changing. Or we can choose courage. My friend, you 41 00:04:44.360 --> 00:04:50.439 don't know how close to seeing that dream come true that you are, in 42 00:04:50.600 --> 00:04:56.790 spite of what other people think and in spite of what they say, despite 43 00:04:57.949 --> 00:05:04.430 those whispers of comfort from the resistance. We can choose courage. Courage to 44 00:05:04.629 --> 00:05:10.740 face our fears, courage to follow our hearts, courage to get back up 45 00:05:10.779 --> 00:05:16.220 again and again and again, and the courage to be all that you were 46 00:05:16.379 --> 00:05:24.370 meant to be. Choose courage, my friend, carpet momentum. I'll talk 47 00:05:24.370 --> 00:05:25.170 to you tomorrow.
