How personal growth and business success often require a level of discomfort. As prolific artist Jean Cocteau once said: “You have comfort. You don’t have luxury. Don’t tell me money plays a part. The luxury I advocate has nothing to do with money. It is the reward of those who have no fear of discomfort”.
In this revealing episode, Chris and Gary discuss their own personal experiences of discomfort, sacrificing their own comforts in the business world in order to progress and further their self potential. To exemplify and unravel this idea, Chris discusses his fear of public speaking – “i’m the quiet guy at back of the room”. How does Chris overcome this fear, through a small level of discomfort!
In addition, the SERVICE DRIVE gurus discuss the book Code to Joy: The Four-Step Solution to Unlocking Your Natural State of Happiness by George Pratt and Peter T. Lambrou.
