I just finished reading this post by Michael Hyatt and am so inspired I want to share it with you right now! Here are just a few quotes:
- “Western culture has things a little backwards right now,” Karnazes once said. “We equate comfort with happiness. And now we’re so comfortable we’re miserable. There’s no struggle in our lives.”
- “happiness comes when we’re gunning toward major goals. I’m talking about the kind of achievements that push us outside our comfort zone…If staring down the goal makes you feel uneasy, you’re on the right track.”
- “People speak of finding balance,” says Karnazes. “To me, that’s a misplaced ambition. If you have balance, you do everything okay. … Balance doesn’t lead to happiness—impassioned dedication to one’s life purpose does.”
What a great post! I highly recommend taking a few minutes to read the entire piece. It is only a few paragraphs long and it’s full of incredible insights on life’s struggles.
Thanks for listening.
