Discomfort Means You’re on the Right Track


Our mind possesses extraordinary and enigmatic power. Whatever our attention is directed onto, we will receive it. My guest today is someone who questions her so-called destiny. On the other hand, she is an internationally recognized business growth expert, social impact investor, and serial entrepreneur whose mission is to inspire potential. She developed a portfolio of purpose-driven businesses with her own money and now invests in and produces mission-driven start-ups. Throughout her more than 25-year career, she has founded, owned, sold, renamed, and turned around more than 40 businesses. She is renowned for her game-changing business models and frameworks for personal change. Everything she has established stems from a wellspring of perseverance and soulful resiliency, which she shares openly through her first purpose-driven brand, Succeed on Purpose. Terri Maxwell, investor, business growth expert, inspirational speaker, and author, joins us on today’s episode to share her self-re-building insights and expertise.

Bobbi’s Takeaways

I hope you took away as much from that conversation as I did.  Here are my 3 insights for thriving:

  1. Discomfort tells you that you are on the right track.  Don’t stop now.  Don’t let you fear stop you.  I loved what Terri said about when she feels that discomfort saying, “It’s go time.”  I’ll be using that one! 
  2. When you feel blame, anger, frustration it is an indication that you are focused on the wrong thing.  I loved her basketball story and what she learned from her grandfather: you get what you focus on. 

Instead of thinking about the past as something that is behind us – and judging ourselves for any perceived mistakes – think of the past as the rock upon which we stand and the future is something that we are growing towards.  I loved that image.
