If leading a team and making decisions feels comfortable then you probably aren’t leading. If being a senior manager and doing what you’re ‘meant to do’ feels normal, then you probably aren’t leading. If going to University and doing that course doesn’t inspire you, then kiss goodbye to leading for the next 3+ years.
We are all tempted by the safe and the normal. It feels easy. We are told it’s the best way and the right way. I have a feeling that it won’t be what you truly want or the vision you had for your life.
Now is the greatest time we’ve seen for hundreds of years to make a decision to lead. Now is the time to be comfortable with that feeling in your stomach…that feels uncomfortable. Be comfortable with someone telling you, that you must be mad for thinking that thought, doing that course, taking that job…starting that business!
Because normal and comfortable in the long run is far less fulfilling and a whole lot harder.
